Do you eye that derelict patch of ground on your way to work and dream of turning it into a vegetable garden?
Do you love living in the city but fantasise about keeping hens?
Do you look at the weeds by the bus stop and wonder if they'd make a nice salad?
Then you're a rurbanite. You have a passion for the countryside but no intention of actually leaving the city. Don't worry you're not alone. You're part of a growing band of people who want the best of both worlds.
City people want to hold onto the energy and diversity of urban life, but don't want to sacrifice that sense of harmony with nature. The Rurbanite Handbook shows you everything you need to achieve both, proving you don't have to move to the country to meet nature head on.
Learn how to grow your own fruit and vegetables in the city however small your space, turn ex-industrial sites into vibrant community gardens, plant to attract wildlife, put a green roof on your garden shed, be a guerrilla gardener, keep bees, hens, quails, ducks and learn to identity the wild flowers growing out of cracks in the pavement.
