Find your route to a more sustainable lifestyle with Dick Strawbridge, of Escape to the Chateau, and his son James.

Wherever you live--be it in a small townhouse like James or on a rural small farm--this updated edition of Self-Sufficiency for the 21st Century offers the nuts and bolts of off-the-grid living to anyone who wants to embrace sustainability.

Self-Sufficiency for the 21st Century contains invaluable advice on making the most of your own resources no matter where you live. This comprehensive guide to modern sustainability covers everything from how to conserve energy in the home, keep bees, and grow crops in an urban garden to recipes for smoking your own meat and fish, creating nut milks, and preparing greener cleaning products. Each project is fully illustrated and easy to follow, allowing anyone to try their hand at something new.

With plenty of advice and anecdotes celebrating the importance and the satisfaction of a do-it-yourself lifestyle, Dick and James demonstrate that self-sufficiency doesn't have to mean packing up and moving to the country. By making a few small changes and learning the importance of sustainable living, we can all help the planet.


Dick Strawbridge, a retired lieutenant colonel and former army engineer, has always been fascinated by how things work. His desire to lead a greener life led him to put his practical and leadership skills to use in converting New House Farm in Cornwall into an ecologically friendly, but completely modern, place to live. The family's journey to a sustainable, self-sufficient lifestyle was documented in the BBC series It's Not Easy Being Green, which ran for three seasons. Dick cowrote the previous edition with his son, and is also the author of It's Not Easy Being Green (BBC Books, 2009). His most recent TV project is the BBC series Escape to the Chateau (March 2018), now in its fifth season, which has been renewed for another season in 2019.

James Strawbridge, Dick's son, has inherited his father's enthusiasm for inventing and DIY, and cohosted It's Not Easy Being Green. After cowriting the previous edition of Self-Sufficiency for the 21st Century and It's Not Easy Being Green, James and his father hosted other popular series, including The Hungry Sailors (ITV 2012, 2013) and Saturday Farm (ITV 2013). James has also cowritten a series of books on artisan crafts, preserving food, and traditional skills: Made at Home (Octopus, 2012). He currently lives in Cornwall.
