With “The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Urban Homesteading” anyone can learn how to live sustainably and responsibly — and save money and time — in any urban environment. Urban homesteader Sundari Kraft shares her knowledge of: growing organic foods (in containers, in your yard, or on someone else’s land) and preserving them; composting; raising chickens, dwarf goats, rabbits, bees, and fish; making cheese, yogurt, and other from-scratch foods; creating your own non-toxic cleaning products; generating electricity and biofuels; urban foraging; and other ways to cut costs and live green. This book has all the information required to become a successful urban homesteader in any city, including how to understand (and change) your city’s zoning laws.
