Holistic Homesteading: A Guide to a Sustainable and Regenerative Lifestyle

by Roxanne Ahern Author

Whether you are already a homesteader, or are simply interested in exploring this more grounded lifestyle, author Roxanne Ahern's Holistic Homesteading can offer the reader the tools they need to reduce their carbon footprint, learn about permaculture, and get back to what's really important. No matter where you live, or whether you have access to land to farm on, this book can help you learn to grow your own food and reduce your dependence on flawed and environmentally destructive global food systems, even if that means growing veggies in a planter in your apartment window. Beyond veggies, Ahern teaches the reader about responsible animal husbandry, organic fertilizing and pest control techniques, and even how to safely and conscientiously forage for mushrooms and wild plants. For anyone ready to get back to the earth, Holistic Homesteading is a great place to start.
