I read a book at a hostel about 4 years ago - it wasn't that old I don't think (written this millenia). Was a great read.

It was written by a lady who moved from a busy corporate job in London to a country area and bought a farm (I think it was in Wales, maybe England). She and her husband rented part of the farm. They also started a farming demonstration school - where kids and families could come to learn about farming, gardening, cooking. They creaed different size gardens to show what was possible for people. I think they also rebuilt an area to use as a kitchen / classroom. It was all a bit tight fiances-wise to make ends meet.

I swapped it for another book when I finished and have wondered for a while now what it's called and who the author is.... looking forward to your genius!

Thank you in advance!

Hello.... anyone have any ideas? Likely written in the UK. Show me your genius :)

Sorry, doesn't ring a bell with me. Sometimes it takes a little time to match up someone's search with someone else's memories, but you've written a very good description and that always helps.
