Living in the Country Without Leaving the CityBook - 2013
In cities around the world, we are redefining our sense of urban living. No longer satisfied with a grey, sterile metropolis, we want the best of both worlds - the energy and diversity of the city, but a stronger sense of harmony with nature too. The Rurbanite Handbook explains everything you need to know to achieve this, proving it isn't necessary to move to the country to meet nature head on, including: turning your back garden into an urban homestead putting a green roof on your garden shed planting to encourage wildlife guerrilla gardening keeping bees, hens, quails, ducks learning to identity the wild flowers growing out of cracks in the pavement turning ex-industrial sites into vibrant community gardens.
