We're proud to work with two amazing charities to make this happen. Home Tree is doing incredible work to restore Ireland's native woodlands and address the climate crisis by planting thousands of pioneer trees.

And Trees for the Future is helping farming families in sub-Saharan Africa to lift themselves out of poverty and regenerate their land by planting amazing productive ‘forest gardens’ that as well as restoring tree cover and regenerating soil, also create a thriving source of food, animal fodder and fuel for each family.

“This book is great! We have had this book less than a week and my whole family has been reading it. There are so many great ideas in this book, our “to do” list has grown substantially. My 11 year old daughter has taken particular interest in this book. The fact that it is a book that she can read has been been both educational and motivating. I love the breakdown of sections between food items, cleaning, growing, farming and trekking. Wonderful content. It has started a lot of family conversations this week for things to do. Thank you!” Reader review, Good reads.

“This book is amazing and I recommend it to anyone that is looking to start down the path to sustainable living. This book is very well organized with easily absorbable information. I did not find a single recipe that I felt like I could not follow. I borrowed this from my local library but will be purchasing my own copy for my personal collection since it is a great reference book.”  Reader review, Good reads.

“A must have for anyone striving to live a selfsustainable life. It covers the basic of a great variety of subjects such as; gardening, cooking, canning, fermenting, candlemaking, soapmaking and farming. I really like the attractive design and modern approach to homesteading. The photos throughout the book are of very high quality and the descriptions very easy to follow.” Reader review, Good reads.
