Publisher's Summary

Farming: becoming self-sufficient through Mini Farming for Beginners

Today's world is one that has become awakened to the changing nature of food cultivation and supply. Gone are the days when the fruits and vegetables that made it to our plates were sources of vitamins and minerals; today's fresh produces are instead the results of experiments of genetically engineered fresh produce. The food that we rely on as sustenance for our development is actually giving us little or no nutritional benefit. In order to combat this unhealthy practice of food consumption people around the world have slowly begum relying on themselves as skilled farmers.

The process of goring and cultivating one's own food has been a part of history. Today we are learning exactly how useful rearing your own crop and meat was. Setting up own mini farm is a process that may take up time and effort, but reaps huge rewards in the long run. By using a small patch of land and determining what produce you'd like to find in your backyard, you can start your own little green patch of health and nutrition. This book aims to show you how you can turn an uncultivated yet perfectly healthy land in your vicinity into a fully-functioning and thriving independent farm, built to suit your needs.

Lacks any information

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Some information related to technique. This was just questioning if backyard farming is right for you. If your looking for knowledge, this probably is not for you.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Unknown. Maybe bee keeping.

What three words best describe Leslie Starr O'Hara’s voice?

It's not bad.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Not really

Any additional comments?

It would have been better to concetrate on one topic and offer some insight.

Meh

Boring to be honest. I was expecting much more. Quite monotonous tone that made it a drag!

Don't get it.

Garbage

Do not waste your time or money on this eBook. I found the general overview to be a complete waste of time that provided no value.
