    This book is amazing This is a complete marketing plan for being an urban farmer All the little tweaks and tips I would need to learn the hard way are mentioned here from obvious to rather hidden experiences Curtis explained the scalable approach to being an urban farmer from part time to full time from small farmland to large farmland When he explains the numbers you can sense that he has a very solid planning amount of crops size of land and even down to using different types of crops are all backed up with figures And the best thing is Curtis will let you in on how to calculate it He gives you the principles of how to work it in the area where you want to farm and sell Very impressive Thank you Curtis
