Sara Ward has transformed her Victorian terraced house in London into an urban smallholding, 'Hen Corner'. Sara passionately believes that it’s possible to combine the benefits of urban living with some of the qualities associated with the country living dream: spending time with nature, producing and making our own food, sustainability and community, and in Living the Good Life in the City she shares some of the ways she and her family have brought city and country together, and shows that you, too, can make a difference to how you live and the food you eat.
Divided into sections covering Make, Grow, Preserve, Keep, and Celebrate, Living the Good Life in the City is packed full of recipes, stories, tips and tricks including baking bread, making your own jam, pasta, sausages and cheese, keeping bees and livestock, preserving, foraging, harvesting and celebrating with food.
Former City banker Sara Ward and her family live the good life complete with hens, bees, a fruitful kitchen garden and a micro bakery. They train and encourage others through their schools' programme and courses.
