Descrizione

It wasn’t so long ago that many households still made their own bread, used their yards for victory gardens, and could take care of themselves in most situations. Those days may be long gone but the homesteading movement is a chance to bring them back.

If you are interested in getting back to a time when we knew how to make the things our family needed to survive from scratch and with our own two hands, this introductory guide, “Homesteading Basics: The Beginners Guide to Self-Sufficiency and Sustainable Living in Town or Country” will give you the foundation you need to move toward that goal.

We begin by introducing the key principles espoused by most homesteaders – simple living, sustainability, self-sufficiency, and permaculture.

Then go on to cover the important topic of sustainably feeding your family.
Next, you will learn some of the ways that homesteaders preserve their harvest and some examples of the kinds of skills homesteaders build to become more self sufficient.
To round out the guide, we touch on raising livestock and the basics around alternative energy are provided.

While many people think that homesteading is only for those who live in rural areas with plots of land, urban and suburban dwellers can be homesteaders too.

Throughout the book, the differences between homesteading in a rural area and homesteading in more urban areas are discussed.

You’ll learn about:

• Simple living

• Sustainability

• Self Sufficiency

• Permaculture

• Growing different kinds of gardens

• Preserving food

• Making bread, butter and cheese

• Keeping livestock like chickens, goats, and rabbits

• Keeping bees

• Water conservation

• Alternative energy sources that can lead to energy independence

If you have ever wondered what it would be like to raise your own eggs, make your own cheese, or grow your own vegetables, this guide is your invitation to explore this way of life.

If you’re interested in sustainability and/or self-sufficiency, this concise guide gives you the perfect jumping off point to explore just how to do that.

Join us and begin moving from thought to action in creating the homesteading lifestyle of your dreams.

Homesteading 101: What is Homesteading?

Essentially, homesteading is a lifestyle that is centered around self-sufficiency and sustainability.  Homesteaders focus on sustainable subsistence agriculture practices, food preservation, raising livestock for food use, and creating a simple and self-sustaining way of life. 

The terms homesteading and homesteader have been used for centuries all around the world.  Here in the U.S., our homesteading legacy comes from the Homesteading Act of 1862 which was the government initiative aimed at populating the western parts of the country.  The people who became homesteaders back then ventured out into unknown remote territories where they were often cut off from society and services.  For this reason, they had to be self-sufficient and they had to adopt subsistence and sustainable practices.

The recent upswing of interest in homesteading is more of a social movement than previous movements which were more geographical and economic.  Today’s homesteaders aren’t pressing forward into unpopulated areas, they are pushing back on modern culture to get back to the land and back to a more self-sufficient lifestyle.  Because these movements are about mindset rather than geography, you can find homesteaders in cities, suburbs, town, as well as in the more traditional rural
