52 HOMESTEAD SKILLS

Mother Earth News 52 Homestead Skills follows homesteader Kimberlee Bastien as she learns one homesteading skill per week over an entire year. The book details Bastien’s adventures, from building a beehive and becoming a beekeeper to creating her own laundry and dish soap. Whether you already live on a homestead, are transitioning onto one, or are only thinking about it, 52 Homestead Skills will help turn your dreams into a life worth living.

Packed with skills such as making deodorant, building a chicken chunnel, and freezing jam, the 52 projects in this book will prove helpful to any homesteader (or anyone looking to do more on their own). Life on a homestead might not always be easy, but as Bastien writes, “The learning never ends, and that’s OK. Because life without a challenge would be boring.”

This book will help you through the hardest parts of living on a homestead and add some fun to the mix!
