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!
It was more like a story book instead of detailed specific skills. I'm donating to my local library.
Excellent advice, funny, well written. Easy to understand
A great gift
I haven't had a chance to use anything in the book yet, but just looking through it is very promising. There are some awesome projects I am looking forward to using.
