      CLEARANCE ITEM. PREVIOUS RETAIL PRICE WAS $19.95 AVAILABLE ONLY WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!

      In the latter half of the twentieth century, the percentage of the total American population living in suburbs grew to nearly 50 percent. Fossil fuels were cheap and plentiful, and car-dependent, energy-intensive lifestyles came hand-in-hand with this demographic transition. In the age of Peak Oil, environmental catastrophe and a failing economy it is imperative that we transform the suburbs into sustainable communities.

      Surviving the Apocalypse in the Suburbs envisions a suburban evolution -- from isolated cookie-cutter houses with manicured lawns and 2-car garages to small, closely packed, productive, interdependent homesteads. This guide to simplifying suburbia and adopting a lower energy lifestyle breaks down all our basic needs and describes how they might be met after the loss of the modern conveniences we currently take for granted. From small-space gardening techniques and a guide to small livestock, to tips on cooking, heating, and sanitation options and much more, this is a complete guide to becoming more self-sufficient wherever you live.

      Required reading for anyone interested in increased self-reliance and a lower carbon footprint, Surviving the Apocalypse in the Suburbs will help you look past the white picket fence to a new world of possibilities.

      CITY CHICKS

      Patricia Foreman
      Paperback

      Price: $22.50

      Chickens have become the mascot of the local food movement. A desire for sustainable, clean, wholesome food and superior soil quality has led more and more suburban and city dwellers to keep lying hens in their backyards and gardens. Across America municipalities are allowing, and even encouraging, residents to keep laying hens within city limits.

      Learn how you can:

      • Have fresh, heart-healthy eggs, daily from your backyard home flock.
      • Employ your chicken's "skill set" as garden workers, organic pesticiders, herbiciders, fertilizers, compost creators and top soil enhancers.
      • Take the best care of your flock and become a Chicken Whisperer.
      • Save millions of tax payer dollars by using chickens to divert food and yard waste from landfills and waste management systems.
      • Be a Primary Poultry Health Care Practitioner to save on vet bills. The Poultry's Pharmacy shows you how to make and use effective, inexpensive home treatments.
      • Draft and pass local laws allowing laying hens within your town or city.
      • Avoid roosters and why you don't want them.
      • Do much, much more with chickens than you ever thought possible, including outrageous chicken tricks.

      Learn how others:

      • Have built urban chicken tractors, hen huts, condos and chicken chateaus to blend in with neighborhood landscape and architecture.
      • Join in urban eco-agri-tourism with annual coop & garden home tours for fund raising.
      • Start or join local poultry clubs.
      • Keep small flocks to help preserve endangered breeds of chickens.
      • Draft and pass local laws allowing laying hens within their town's limits.

      By the co-author of Chicken Tractor, Backyard Market Gardening and Day Range Poultry. City Chicks is a revolutionary way of keeping and using chickens by thinking "outside the coop" and "inside the city". More than 100 photos, drawings, and tables give visual clarity.

      The imaginative and entertaining style of writing is combined with hands-on, real-life experience to bring you one of the most complete and authoritative books on micro-flock management.

You’ll also learn how to milk, shear, breed, raise newborn kids, and more. The Backyard Goat makes it easy to enjoy the benefits of owning a goat or two, with no experience necessary.

      About the author
      Sue Weaver began writing in 1969, when she sold her first article to The Western Horseman. Since then she’s written hundreds of magazine articles and eight books about livestock, horses and chickens, including Storey’s Guide to Raising Miniature Livestock, The Backyard Goat and The Donkey Companion. Weaver and her husband share their ridgetop farmette in the southern Ozarks with an array of animal friends, including poultry, sheep, goats, horses, a donkey who thinks she’s a horse, two llamas, a pet razorback pig and two steers — a Jersey-Holstein and a water buffalo, both of whom Weaver is training to ride and drive.
