Not the 1970s UK TV programme, but a free place for people to swap, give away or sell anything from seeds to tractors. Anything illegal or immoral will be deleted.

The Complete Urban Farmer - book

Seems like the best site to offer this on -

The Complete Urban Farmer - growing your own fruit and vegetables in town by David Wickers.
One of the very good Fontana series - they did Backyard chicken keeping and others. Covers tools, preparing a small garden, soil improvement, rotation, sowing from seed, allotments, growing indoors, sprouting, eating and storing, among others.
175pp, very good condition for its age 1976.

Anyone like it? WHY?

i'd like it for our growing library here - nice to have plenty of english language books for wwoofers & random visitors to browse. i did once have a copy but gave it away when we moved here - not being urban anymore - but i remember it was a really good book. is it heavy to post?
best wishes, sophie

If it is the same as mine (cheers nev) it is a paperback so it should not cost much to post. Good book.
