The Environmental and Development Agency (EDA) has been working with village groups and small farmers in South Africa since 1977. On the strength of this experience, it has produced a well-illustrated handbook that gives practical help for developing gardens and small plots, and for looking after farm animals. The book opens with a description of the concept and principles of sustainable farming. The core chapters cover homestead farming, tree and crop production, and livestock production covering poultry (chickens), and small (rabbits) and large (cattle, sheep) animals. The book includes interviews with small farmers that illustrate the ideas and methods described, as well as a section on farm records and a useful glossary of southern African terms.
