“If you’re living in the city and would like your garden, however tiny, to give you fresh and inexpensive fruit and vegetables, or if you’re moving to the country and would like to run a small productive farm, Surviving in the Eighties is indispensable.
Many of us want to achieve some small degree of self-sufficiency, if only to provide a pleasant alternative to expensive processed food.  But how do we go about it?  In this practical, beautifully illustrated book, Richard Beckett shows that you can achieve a degree of self-sufficiency whilst living in the city.  Even one tomato plant growing in an inner suburb is better than nothing and, with a little thought and ingenuity, it is possible to do much more.  And if you are able to move to the country, Michael Boddy provides the basic information needed to run a small rural property.”
