Books Info:

Mastering the Art of Self-sufficiency in New Zealand free pdf With the increasing popularity of thrift culture, coupled with rising disenchantment with the consumerism of modern times, more and more people are looking to 'get away from it all' with a self-sufficient lifestyle. Many only dream of it, but ex-city slicker Carolann Murray and her husband took the plunge and acquired a 10-acre block outside Wellington. Through trial and error they developed proficiency in a number of areas, including: making wine and spirits- dairying, milking, making butter and cheeses- keeping chooks- sheep- bread-making- renewable energy- vegetable and fruit growing- beekeeping and making soap. Line illustrations by Lisa Allen show equipment and demonstrate techniques. Carolann writes a humorous account of ten years spent mastering the art of living sustainably. More than that, she offers tried-and-true recipes and techniques for those who want to try it themselves.
