Milkwood have done it again. Everything they do has equal parts style and substance and this book has both in spades (excuse the pun). Rather than trying to do what a lot of gardening/ permaculture books do and try to cover everything in one book, Kirsten and Nick have chosen a few areas of expertise and explored them in-depth.
They have chapters on tomatoes, mushrooms, beekeeping, seaweed and wild food—each one is presented with clear, easy-to-read instructions and explanations, with stunning photography and illustrations.
The photography shows the authors demonstrating the practices and living the life of ‘down-to-earth’ living, painting a picture of a life of homegrown food, rustic picnics and practical self-sufficiency. If this book doesn’t inspire you to get ‘down-to-earth’, I don’t know what will.
