Like a recipe book for projects! This is a great book for everything green. Most of it is introductory but a good start for everyone.

What can I say about this book except that I LOVE IT? I think everyone is bound to find at least ONE idea within that is worth a try. I had it setting on my dinner table for a week and no less than 5 people sat down and got engrossed. From my tech-geek brother to my pretty-garden-obsessed friend. Give it a try... this single book is worth four garden how-to's. Trust me!

All the info you need to move toward sustainability.

Fun to read. Most of us will not apply every subject in the book, but you may well come up with something to try. Energy conservation, gardening, animal husbandry, woodlot management, recipes, remedies and various crafts are the broad headings covered. I especially liked the "Greener Cleaners", although most of them I already use.
