I read this book to see what herbs and plants I could grow in my apartment; which could share containers, etc. There's a good chapter on natural plant fertilizers. There are also instructions on how to build a drying rack, a worm bin and a plant container from a filing cabinet. Thee are recipes in this book for foods, herbal salts, tisanes, salves, balms, toners and oils. There are sections on canning, growing sprouts and foraging for the urbanite. ( )
