BACKYARD FARMING during TOUGH TIMES: A Beginner’s Guide
|Urban farming is becoming more and more popular for different reasons. Some people choose to do it for health reasons, trying to avoid genetically modified food. Others do it for financial reasons or simply as a hobby.

He shares some wisdom learned from those times with us that could be useful in good times and invaluable in bad times (An Amazon Customer)
This book is written by a man who personally went through two financial crises in his youth. He shares some wisdom learned from those times with us that could be useful in good times and invaluable in bad times. I feel inspired to evaluate my family’s current situation and make the best of what we have right now instead of longing for something else. Great reality check for where the world seems determined to get to in a hurry. If bad times are coming, the time spent reading this book could save your life. It’s simple reading, but the truth is surviving tough times takes a combination of skills and assets.
