Revue de presse
This is the book that I wish had been in print when I left the parental abode for the first time. It provides fantastic advice for anyone currently engaged with the transient lifestyle often endured by those in rented properties. I have already bought a copy for a friend who had just moved to a flat with a balcony. --Nicola Bell, Permaculture Works
There are recipes, photos and anecdotes from Kemp's experience growing food on her small balcony in London; Kemp is warm and self-effacing. Each month has its own herb, with growing tips and culinary and medicinal uses for each. Kemp's advice is resourceful and practical, and she always suggests free, or at least the cheapest, options for everything she introduces: including making your own very simple self-watering containers, labelling plants, enhancing your compost, and building a cold frame. --Emily Ingham, Permaculture magazine
I think the best thing about this book is that, even though it is so completely enabling for anyone living in a city, it doesn't stop there. The skills you learn planning your balcony, choosing plants and intercepting flows of water and materials are exactly the same ones needed to plan a much larger garden if ever you expand your horizons to a larger space. But if you're happy where you are, this book will help you to make the best of the space you have, the resources around you, and to find fulfillment and joy wherever you call home. --Burra Maluca, Permies.com
