Homesteading today can take on many different forms. It might mean having an extensive backyard garden with greenhouse, chicken coop, and root cellar, all smack dab in the middle of a city. Or maybe it's a more traditional set-up on a remote rural property, off the grid, living a life of back-to-the-land self-sufficiency on an acreage hundreds of miles from the nearest town.
Whatever vision you have for your homestead, there's a lot to learn but with a little preparation and planning and the motivation to make your life more self-sufficient, it is attainable. This book takes you through a bit of the background of homesteading and gives you plenty of good dirt-under-your-fingernails tips on how to get started, including information on water, energy, permaculture, food preservation, raising animals, and more.
As with all Simple Self-Sufficiency titles, this book is written in an interesting and readable manner, without all the "fluff". We aim to publish books in a way that will deliver to you all of the necessary information without going into an extreme amount of detail. We guarantee you will come out with expanded knowledge of the topic without you having to take days to read it. Enjoy!
