Self-sufficiency no matter where you live!

We live in the city but wanted to get the skills and know how to live more self-sufficiently and this book helped up get started. I was impressed with all of the many great ideas on how to create a homestead in smaller spaces than what most people think of as an off grid homestead, which is not desired or obtainable for many. Any how I feel more comfortable with the canning process with my first garden. Great for beginners no matter where you live. Highly recommend!

Great Intro to homesteading

As a homesteader myself, I didn't think I would learn much - but I was wrong!
I have been gardening and raising chickens for years, but I appreciated the section on raising small livestock like goats, as I always thought it was too overwhelming. The author did a good job of explaining the benefits of using modern technology, in addition to traditional homesteading skills. Overall, I would recommend this book to anyone interested in backyard homesteading in the city.

Fantastic

It’s crazy how we’ve lost so many of these skills in just a couple of generations, this book is literally filled to the brim with useful information for your journey into self-sufficiency. I particularly loved the gardening section which is where I am starting. It was great to hear so many options for different-sized spaces as well as the storing options for produce and some handy recipes. I’m so excited to try the shampoo and conditioner recipes and get started with some basic sewing and mending. A great book!

Great for anyone with a small space

This book is full of great ideas and tips, and tricks for anyone who has a garden and a must for anyone wanting a garden with limited space. It is fabulous with how to prep soil, and techniques to use based on types of vegetables, and space. I enjoyed listening to it; it has given me many tips to ensure that my garden will continue to be useful for many years in my outside garden in our small backyard.

Interesting concepts - clearly explained

This book is so refreshing - it reminds me of my happy days living in the countryside. I like the practical strategies of using low-cost household supplies to maintain the garden.

I feel the author presented a range of options and possibilities so that there is something for everyone. The section on beekeeping is so interesting!

A very delightful audiobook.
