The Rurbanite: Living in the Country without Leaving the City

by Alex Mitchell - £16.99  Kyle Books (2013)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780857830722 | ISBN 10: 0857830724

In cities around the world, we are redefining our sense of urban living. No longer satisfied with a grey, sterile metropolis, we want the best of both worlds the energy and diversity of the city, but a connection with nature too.
Filled with practical advice, projects and inspiring stories from bus stop landscapers, guerilla gardeners, urban homesteaders and rooftop beekeepers from all over the world, The Rurbanite illustrates how our cityscapes are being transformed and shows you how enjoyable and simple it is to:
turn your back garden into an urban homestead
put a green roof on your garden shed
plant to encourage wildlife
guerrilla garden
keep bees, hens, quails, ducks
learn to identity the wild flowers growing out of cracks in the pavement
turn ex-industrial sites into vibrant community gardens
