Product Description

The Weekend Homesteader is organized by month—so whether it’s January or June you’ll find exciting, short projects that you’ll use to dip your toes into the vast ocean of homesteading without getting overwhelmed. If you wish to have to fit homesteading into a couple of hours each weekend and want to have fun at the same time as doing it, these projects will be right up your alley, whether you survive a forty-acre farm, a postage-stamp lawn in suburbia, or a high rise.   

You’ll be able to learn about backyard chicken care, how to make a choice the best mushroom and berry species, and why and how to plant a no-till garden that heals the soil at the same time as providing nutritious food.  Permaculture techniques will turn your homestead into a vibrant ecosystem and attract native pollinators at the same time as converting our society’s waste into high-quality compost and mulch. Meanwhile, enjoy the fruits of your labor right away as you learn the basics of cooking and eating seasonally, then preserve homegrown produce for later by drying, canning, freezing, or simply filling your kitchen cabinets with storage vegetables. As you develop into more self-sufficient, You’ll be able to save seeds, prepare for power outages, and tear yourself away from a full-time job, at the same time as building a supportive and like-minded community. You won’t be completely eliminating your reliance on the grocery store, but you’ll be plucking low-hanging (and delicious!) fruits out of your own garden by the time all forty-eight projects are complete.
