Homesteading by Abigail R Gehring. A backyard guide to growing your own food, canning, keeping chickens, generating your own energy, crafting, herbal medicine and more. Who doesn’t want to shrink their carbon footprint, save money, and eat homegrown food whenever possible. Even readers who are very much on the grid will embrace this large, fully-illustrated guide on the basics of living the good, clean life. It’s written with country lovers in mind—even those who currently live in the city. Whether you live in the city, the suburbs, or even the wilderness, there is plenty you can do to improve your life from a green perspective. Got sunlight? Start container gardening. With a few plants, fresh tomatoes, which then become canned tomato sauce, are a real option. Reduce electricity use by eating dinner by candlelight (using homemade candles, of course). Learn to use rainwater to augment water supplies. Make your own soap and hand lotion. Consider keeping chickens for the eggs. From what to eat to supporting sustainable restaurants to avoiding dry cleaning, this US book offers information on anything a homesteader needs—and more. Chapters are;
The home garden
Pantry
The backyard farm
Simple structures for your land
Energy
Crafts
Well being
