Publisher's Summary

Experience the freedom and abundance of self-reliant living...without abandoning the comforts of your modern home.

Worldwide, there are about two million people who have embraced the homestead life in rural or off-grid locations. In the United States, there are about 200,000 families doing the same.

Their motivations are universal: They value clean-and-green living and independence, they’re dissatisfied with the daily grind of city life, and they’re looking for more meaningful endeavors in line with their values.

So, what if you share the same passions but also appreciate the convenience and opportunities you enjoy in your urban dwelling? Do you really need to sell everything you own and move to a remote, undeveloped property? Do you need to give up your social life and security in the city before you can live an autonomous lifestyle?

Thankfully, you don’t need to do any of those things. And, that’s because you can live more sustainably and responsibly exactly where you are right now...through backyard homesteading. Throughout this audiobook, you'll learn how to:

  • Grow your own food while contributing to the environment’s health
  • Create unique, nature-based products while reducing waste
  • Become energy-efficient and less resource-intensive...while simultaneously being more productive

Granted, it’s easier said than done, especially when you’re just starting out and susceptible to mistakes. And, that’s why you need a complete and reliable resource to help you acquire all the skills you need to take on the exciting challenges ahead.

In Beginner Homestead Mistakes, you will discover:

  • Why backyard homesteading is your solution to the ever-increasing cost of urban living
  • How to assess, plan, and prepare your backyard homestead in easy steps
  • Everything you need to know to start a thriving vegetable, fruit, and herb garden at home
  • Over 10 proven and practical methods of preserving food from your garden
  • Over 10 nature-based home products you can craft from raw materials on your homestead
  • Over 10 safe and effective concoctions you can make from your own home-grown herbs
  • How to maintain your backyard homestead using natural and organic methods
  • How to sustain your homestead, and reap the rewards throughout the seasons
  • Seven proven ways of earning additional (and substantial) income through your homestead

And, much more.

It’s true that once you start taking homesteading seriously, you’ll run into the occasional challenge: Perhaps, you’ll need to clarify environmental regulations before working on the land, or maybe there are ordinances affecting your plans to raise livestock. But, don’t let this dampen your enthusiasm: those aren’t roadblocks at all. They’re normal and expected processes when establishing any type of livelihood.

With hundreds of thousands of people already homesteading successfully, the question is not whether it can be done, but how to do it the right way. And, that’s where the practical instructions and insightful guidance in Beginner Homestead Mistakes will be of invaluable help to you.

Very Relevant in Today's Age

Having been a farmer on an orchard for a good portion of my late teens and 20s, I can say that I almost perfectly relate to this book. In those years of working with my old man, I learned so much about machinery, planting, tilling, fertilizing, composting, running irrigation lines, and even small scale gardening on the side. What's covered in this book is more about urban gardening. Which is obviously going to be much smaller than what I'm talking about, but I'm just speaking from personal experience. Be it homesteading or farming, either way is no easy challenge, but in today's day and age where hyper-inflation is setting in, prices are doubling in grocery stores, and issues with supply and demand, this book is very relevant in today's age. Narration was also really good as well.
