Publisher's Summary

A permaculture expert and popular YouTube Homesteader shares the skills and the delights of becoming a part of your own food story in this inspiring, accessible, and beautiful invitation to a more abundant, healthy, and connected life.

Have you ever wanted to experiment with growing your own food but didn’t think you had the space, the time, or the knowledge? Justin Rhodes thought the same thing - until after years battling systemic illness and struggling to provide the kind of wholesome food he wanted for his family, he bought a seed packet at the grocery store and was hooked! Justin discovered the miraculous potential and empowerment of working with nature to grow food for his family, and since that discovery, he has shared his self-taught skills with hundreds of thousands of growers via his popular YouTube channel and website. Whether you're looking for greater food security, better health, tastier food, to save or earn money, connect with your food source, this book is for you. If you're looking for a different kind of life - a life focused on health and wellness - take a look down the road less traveled.   

Looking for every opportunity to pass his hard-earned knowledge onto others, Justin Rhodes created this inspiring and practical invitation to growing your own food and experiencing a more connected, sustainable lifestyle, no matter where you live or how much space you have. Filled with beautiful and inspiring photographs from the Rhodes’ homestead and chock full of resources, including gardening plans, everything you need to know about raising chickens, tips for how to get your kids involved, and even recipes for how to serve up your home-grown goodness, The Rooted Life provides you with the inspiration, the encouragement, and the practical wisdom that you need to begin the journey to a more rooted life.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Old enough to know!

I received the hard copy at noon today! Got the audio to go with it, and started listening, following along with the hard copy. This book is well written and the audio is just great. 🤦🏼‍♀️ Went straight through without stoping. One thing I’ve Never been able to do. Never lost interest or got bored! I will listen to it again. I do think it helped me to follow along and be able to see the pictures along with the story. Just love it.

Inspiring

This book helped me get through a tough stage of gardening burn out. A great book for beginners but also very inspiring for advanced homesteaders, it reminded me why we do this in a time I needed it most. I hardly have time to sit and read a hard cover book but Justin's audiobook version made it unique and memorable, only took a couple of days listening to it during chores and housework. I love the way he can tell a story. 10/10 recommend.

meh it's alright

try not to spoil it for anyone else but chicken tractors ain't really permaculture
permaculture is like when you build a garden wall around your property which has a rock footing and you release rabbits and they mow it keeping it trimmed like a golf course where you can putt golf across it at any time no weeding no mowing necessary and when you keep their numbers down to just one male and a couple females you have an ongoing meat supply in addition to a low maintenance yard they won't escape because they can't dig below the footing.

Great balanced book!

I’ve followed Justin on YouTube for years picking up tips along the way, even building my own version of his chickshaw. This book, though, exceeded my expectations. It is a wonderful balance of helpful information and engaging story. Thanks for a very entertaining and informative book, Justin.

Incredible!

I have become more and more interested in this rooted way of life and Justin has been extremely helpful on this journey. I am so grateful for everything he does and I love his heart for serving. He clearly embodies Christian love and service through his life in bringing in foster kids, putting out content for people, and stewarding the land. This book was an excellent intro into homesteading and a more rooted life

Uncle Justin dares you to dream!

From a small town in the Uk with a tiny square of garden mid Terrace, Justin’s booked dares me to dream. I love the way even me , someone with no experience can be so inspired. No one is left out! container gardens(that’s me) to acres of land. I’ve been watching Justin Rhodes you tube channel for so long. I eagerly pre ordered the book on audible. I’ve tried to pace myself so It didn’t come to a end so soon. The wait was so worth it! I feel like I’ve cut myself short not having the book for the all the pictures! Thank you Justin and family! When’s the next one????

great book to get you started on this topic

this book has been written lovingly by Justin in a way that makes it very easy for anyone, no matter how novice, to digest easily. He presents straightforward info on exactly how to set up a veg garden (3 different ways) and how to get started raising chickens as well. a few chapters dedicated to telling his story, and giving tips on how to live a more rooted life with your family, saves this book from being all technicality. it's a good balance of practical help/info, and inspiration. this book is like the gateway drug into reading more on the topic at length, like Joel Salatins books (Joel is one of Justin's mentors, and it shows). all round a nicely written book
