Sneak peek at Modern Homestead
February 3, 2011 Leave a comment
One of the titles I’m most excited for this spring is Renee Wilkinson’s Modern Homestead: Grow, Raise, Create. When she’s not ruling her garden with an iron trowel, Renee blogs her adventures in sustainability and homesteading at her website: hipchickdigs.com.
This book is a great guide for urbanites and homesteading newbies to get their paws dirty raising small livestock and growing and preserving their own bounty of fruit, herbs, and veggies, as well as anyone who has an interest in sustainable and conscientious living.
For me, this book is a great guide for breaking free of food systems and preparing to survive for the inevitable zombie apocalypse. (Romero flicks are a great short-term guide for zombie survival: Hide, Defend, Behead; but for the long-term, you better grow, raise, create to survive the first zompocalypse winter.)
