The Women's Heritage Sourcebook: Bringing Homesteading to Everyday Life
Written by Ashley Moore and Lauren Malloy and Emma Rollin Moore and Audria Culaciati
The book of the movement that applies homegrown practices of self-sufficiency to modern life.
Homesteading is a lifestyle of self-reliance and sustainability, characterized by home gardening and animal husbandry, food preservation, and even the small-scale production of textiles, clothing, and craftwork.
This indispensable reference book is divided into three sections: food (from sourdough bread baking to pickling vegetables to fermenting kefir), herbalism (from growing an herbal garden to making skin and hair care products to foraging), and animal husbandry (from beekeeping to buying, raising, and owning chickens, cows, and pigs).
Lavishly illustrated with 250 full-color photographs and full of detailed tips, techniques, and recipes, this reference book is comfortable on the coffee table, in your kitchen, or even propped open for use in your backyard garden.
