“Don’t try to do it all today. On the other hand, don’t throw your arms in despair because you can’t do everything and then decide to do nothing. Every little bit helps….Sustainability is a journey.”
At Homestead Bloggers Network, part of our mission is supporting a more self-sufficient lifestyle, by supporting the bloggers who write and teach us. We know how important it is to learn from those around us who are “doing” these amazing and interesting things. That’s why I think this book, Homegrown and Handmade, by Deborah Niemann is so important.
The tone of the book is like a friendly neighbor chatting with you about her latest homesteading adventure. It’s my favorite way to learn more because it presents options and real, personal experience that simply can’t be found in an encyclopedia.
This comprehensive guide to food and fiber from scratch proves that attitude and knowledge is more important than acreage. Written from the perspective of a successful, self-taught modern homesteader, this well-illustrated, practical, and accessible manual will appeal to anyone who dreams of a more empowered life.
Chapters include gardening, keeping backyard livestock, and making your own handmade items. And this exclusive giveaway package through Homestead Bloggers Network will have items you need to bring the book to life in your own home.
