Sustainable Food

Michael Mobbs  

248 pages
Publisher: Choice Books


    Paperback - 2012
ISBN: 9781920705541 - AU $ 45.00

 

 After renovating his inner-city Sydney terrace and making it almost entirely self-sufficient in energy, water and waste disposal, Michael Mobbs realised his house was sustainable, but he wasn’t. While his house saves 100,000 litres of dam water a year, the same amount of water is used to produce ten days’ worth of food for the average Australian.

In this companion book to the bestselling Sustainable House, Mobbs turns his attention to reducing the carbon emissions associated with growing, processing, transporting, selling and disposing food. With his own experiences anchoring the book, Sustainable Food contains practical advice on establishing community and backyard vegetable gardens, keeping chooks and bees, and reducing water usage, along with insights into dealing with councils, sidelining supermarkets and what we eat and why.
