Attainable Sustainable is a great book for those who enjoy being outside and in the garden. I love planting and growing vegetables and herbs in my garden and I learned so much.
The book is perfect for beginners. If you have never planted your own garden, you will learn so much. The great thing about this book is that it shows you pictures and details the best environment to have successful growth.
It also has so many other great ideas like DIY home supplies. It’s so empowering to learn how much you can get done at your own house.
I give Attainable Sustainable 4 stars. It’s a great DIY and an environmental book about planting, baking, and even making your own natural household supplies. The stunning pictures and detailed tips will prove to be beneficial on your sustainable journey.
