5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant book and great present!, 20 Mar 2013
This review is from: The Rurbanite: Living in the Country without Leaving the City (Paperback)
I was given this book as a present and i love it! In fact i think quite a few people will be getting this from me this year! It's perfect for an ex country girl like me who is marooned in London but dreaming of a more rural life and I'm using it as a manual for turning my urban garden into a rurbanite paradise - I've even bought some hens! Lots of interesting info on community gardening as well and i really like the way it's broken down into projects that you can achieve in a weekend or around a busy life.

This review is from: The Rurbanite: Living in the Country without Leaving the City (Paperback)
This author is such an enjoyable writer - it all flows so naturally without being patronising or highbrow or any of those things that usually irritate so much in a reference book. It says what it has to say in chatty informative bites, and is all one needs on the greenhouse bookshelf.

This review is from: The Rurbanite: Living in the Country without Leaving the City (Paperback)
Just got my copy of the Rurbanite. I loved Alex's last book, The Edible Balcony so couldn't wait to read this. I've just moved to a house with a garden and am really interested in keeping hens and possibly, if I'm brave enough, bees - this book is perfect, it's got it all - vegetable growing, hen-keeping, foraging, etc. I love all the tips and photos, I've got a flat roofed shed & I'm definitely going to put a green roof on it now that I've seen how.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic and inspirational book, 20 Mar 2013
This review is from: The Rurbanite: Living in the Country without Leaving the City (Paperback)
I am so pleased I bought this book - lots of clearly laid out projects to get the whole family interested growing some of our own food as well as encouraging wildlife into the garden (my 7 year old daughter is desperate to make a nesting site for bumble bees!). We have a smallish suburban garden and never thought we had space to grow vegetables, but this has inspired us! All the information you need without making it seem too technical or daunting.
