Everything you ever wanted to know about homesteading, all with a cool, modern style that gives nod to the old

Sixth-generation gardener Renee Wilkinson embraces the old school while adding a bit of funk in this saavy-smart guide to homesteading. From a windowsill to a sprawling backyard, these are all places we can grow vegetables, make homes for animals, and fill our cupboards with canned decadence, all the while flashing our personal style and taste.

Book News
Wilkinson, creator of the blog, shares urban homesteading tips, many of which are gleaned from her experience keeping chickens and cultivating vegetables on a mere tenth of an acre in Portland, Oregon. She discusses turning one's home into a homestead; cultivating vegetables; keeping chickens, goats, and ducks in the city; beekeeping; and preserving the harvest. Several garden plans, plant lists, and recipes are included as well as plans for the constructing a chicken coup and worm bin. The handbook is generously illustrated with color photographs.
