This is a new and up-to-date edition of the farming section in the hugely popular "People's Workbook". Originally written for the millions of Southern Africa's small farmers who help themselves by growing their own vegetables or keeping their own chickens and a few goats, this book will also help any small farmer or small-holder in developing countries to help themselves.

This book is easy to read and easy to use, with hundreds of helpful illustrations. It includes interviews with small farmers from all over Southern Africa, as well as a new chapter on sustainable agriculture - on keeping the land healthy and fertile so that it can go on producing for the generations to come.
