That blatantly tells you that people are feeling the effects of the environment around them. We're not talking about "good" effects either. We're talking about chemicals in the food we eat, pollution of land, water and the air we breathe. This also includes finite natural resources that's becoming scarce thus driving the cost up as demand for it continues, etc. In general, health issues have been on the rise due to a combination of all these things which drives the desire to make certain changes in one's lifestyle. This is why "Sustainable Living - Practical Eco-Friendly Tips for Green Living and Self-Sufficiency in the 21st Century - [Special Edition Collection]" had to be written.

It inspires you to try doing some of the things mentioned. There are many references and sources to help you do that. From there you can take it to the next level.

Isabell Shipard, one of Australia's most knowledgable and sought after authorities on herbs and author of the acclaimed books How can I use Herbs in my daily life? and How can I grow and use Sprouts as living food? says, "For many years I taught Herb Courses, covering many edible plants, and included a segment on survival foods and the importance of self-sufficiency for possible hard times. People often expressed that I should put this information into a book. With the economic squeeze in Australia, and severe drought experienced over large areas of farmland, just what will the future hold for average Australian families? Everyone is experiencing the pressure, as food, fuel and the cost of living has dramatically risen in price. In this 21st century we are seeing major disasters that are disrupting peoples lives in so many areas of the world. We must all be more conscious of ways to reduce, recycle, repair and reuse items and consider how we can all tread more softly on Planet Earth. What I desire is that all who read this book will be inspired and motivated to take action for the benefit of the planet." We believe the book, How can I be prepared with Self-Sufficiency and Survival Foods? will be a valuable reference manual for every person and family. This book offers encouragement about the importance of being as self-sufficient as one is able and an action plan to help you 'ride the storms'. Isabell shows us how to be prepared with a step-by-step emergency management plan for food provisions and essential supplies. We need to encourage one another to be as self sufficient as possible... now... in our gardens, as this is the most nutritious fresh food and and cheapest way to live in these times of rising prices. Growing our own food is very satisfying as well as beneficial to health and well-being.

In a most timely volume addressing many of the connections among current fiscal and employment crises to adult education, Learning for Economic SelfSufficiency highlights the problems and challenges that lowliterate adults encounter in various environments. Moreover, this book presents strategies for addressing the chronic illiteracy among lowincome workers. The power of this volume is that the reader gains a holistic view of the complexities of educating a population of lowliterate adult learners from various life conditions. From language literacy issues in corrections, the workplace and access to higher education, and migrant workers literacy learning barriers, to technology literacies, and consumerism myths, Learning for Economic SelfSufficiency goes far deeper than prior volumes in exploring the complex scope of issues face by lowincome, lowliterate adults as they seek learning for economic selfsufficiency. The overall objective of the book is to help readers explore economic selfsufficiency for low literate and lowincome adults from various contexts and the role of adult and higher education in developing these learners for greater economic independence. Noting that literacy is only a first step to economic, mental, and physical health as well as responsible citizenship, each chapter provide specific case examples and recommendations to educators and trainers of adults for creating learning programs and environments to facilitate the development of a more literate and economically stable population.
