About the Book



The ultimate guide to self-sufficient living for country, urban, and suburban...



Book Synopsis



Here is a full-color guide to help you and your family to be kinder to Mother Earth, while being kind to your bank account! It doesn't matter where your homestead is located--farm, suburb, or even city--you can learn to grow vegetables, use alternative energy, can and preserve, and more! You, too, can be more self-sufficient!

With the rapid depletion of our planet's natural resources, we would all like to live a more self-sufficient lifestyle. But in the midst of an economic crisis, it's just as important to save money as it is to go green.

  • Plan, plant, and harvest your own organic home garden.
  • Enjoy fruits and vegetables year-round by canning, drying, and freezing.
  • Build alternate energy devices by hand, such as solar panels or geothermal heat pumps.
  • Differentiate between an edible puffball mushroom and a poisonous amanita.
  • Prepare butternut squash soup using ingredients from your own garden.
  • Conserve water by making a rain barrel or installing an irrigation system.
  • Have fun and save cash by handcrafting items such as soap, potpourri, and paper.

Experience the satisfaction that comes with self-sufficiency, as well as the assurance that you have done your part to help keep our planet green. The Homesteading Handbook is your roadmap to living in harmony with the land.
