There is big money in the city. The author of this comprehensive guide, subtitled The Guide to Growing for Profit In or Near the City, invites you to earn up to eight times the average personal income on as little as one acre of land.  He shows you how to do it with 576 pages of text; 252 charts, illustrations and photographs; 50 practical exercises designed to help readers develop necessary skills and five chapter-length illustrated conversations with successful metrofarmers. If you're a city dweller with an urge to claim a little of your environment for productive purposes or a farmer looking to break out of the commodity-production treadmill, this might be the book for you.
