About the Author

Kristeva Dowling was born and raised in Vancouver, BC, and attained her master's degree in Social Anthropology in New Zealand. In 2003, she returned to Canada and bought a small acreage in the Bella Coola Valley. Determined to grow her own food, she turned her attention to sustainable farming, started a blog on homesteading and began to write about self-sufficiency. She has been a contributor to "Not Dabbling in Normal," the 'Coast Mountain News' and the 'Williams Lake Tribune'. She has also been published in 'Small Farm Canada', and has an upcoming article in 'Outdoor Edge Magazine' about moose hunting. Kristeva is now living in Grande Prairie, Alberta.

Format: Paperback
I am still only 1/4 of the way through, but I am enjoying it much more than any manual on hobby farming or raising chickens. Her ups and downs and learning as she goes has been extremely informative. I have been wanting to start my own hobby farm for a while, and as soon as I saw this on the bookshelf, I grabbed it!

You'll go through a myriad of emotions reading this. Laughing at the problems that pop up while farming, and anger or frustration at the regulations she had to face, and the direction she took the farm because of the Canadian / BC laws.

Highly recommend this book.
