#1 Amazon New Release in Agriculture!
For those who have dreamed of relocating to the countryside — and who possess two X chromosomes—this multifaceted guide to organic farming is ideal. Sprinkled throughout the book are "Idea Seeds" and "Tool Sheds" that provide agricultural advice as well as information about women-centered farming non-profits and other like organizations. The book also includes detailed photographs and biographies of women who are thriving as farmers…This is a richly detailed book with lots of useful advice, and any woman (or man, for that matter) interested in farming would do well to read it.
