Details: The Modern Homestead Imagine yourself in a thriving backyard garden homestead complete with vegetables, chickens, or goats. Imagine having such self-reliance that you don’t have to go to the grocery store every week. Sustainable, green living is achievable, whether you live in an urban, suburban, or rural location. It will not only save the planet, but it can save your health (and money, too!). In my book The Modern Homestead, I will show you how to achieve true sustainability at home through self-reliant, eco-friendly, green living strategies. You can grow food for your family and live off grid (or semi-off-grid) with your modern backyard homestead. I have lived my whole life with keeping sustainability in mind. I have been gardening, canning, re-using, and recycling before those habits were popular. Now that I am an adult with a family and responsibilities, I have found ways to incorporate these techniques into our lives, teaching my children to be mindful of the Earth. This not only makes the world a better place, it’s also better for our health and budget. My backyard is a self-sustained ecosystem of its own, the permaculture very much alive and thriving, helping me and my family live the truly self-reliant life. You don’t need to go permanently off grid to enjoy living off the land—all it takes is a little bit of patience, a chockfull of know-how, and a huge heaping of love While living in a city, you can still live a modern, self-sustainable, green lifestyle. There are little things that you can do that will help you save resources, including time and money. No matter what part of the self-reliant spectrum you fall on, there are tips, tricks, and techniques you can employ to help you reach your goals. From fully off-grid country-style life to urban balcony gardening, you can help yourself and the environment (and be better prepared to deal with any crisis that your family may face because you rely on yourself and not the food supply chain!). While you might be interested in starting a sustainable life, you might think it’s impossible to leave all the comforts of technology and society behind. The good news is that sustainable living doesn’t have to be that way. You can have a self-reliant and sustainable lifestyle by providing for yourself while still maintaining your jobs and staying close to your family and friends. Yes, you can still continue living in your own neighborhood—all that you need to do is to rely on stores and supply chains as little as possible. My book will show you how to be a modern homesteader and live a self-reliant, sustainable, green, lifestyle that will benefit the Earth as well as care for yourself in the best way What sustainable living is The difference between sustainable living and zero waste How to start sustainable living Why sustainable living is important The three pillars of sustainability The history of homesteading Lessons learned from the great depression that apply today Why you should (or shouldn’t) go self-reliant Building your homestead from scratch with a step-by-step guide to setting up A discussion of different homestead animal choices The costs of homesteading What permaculture means How to make a four-season garden How to harvest your veggies (and eggs, if you have them) Indoor permaculture tips, tricks, and techniques Preservation and storage of your homegrown food How to sell your excess produce Other ways to live sustainably Frequently asked questions about homesteading This book also makes a great gift!
