Publisher's Summary

Make your home self-sufficient, live off your land and save a lot of money by becoming a backyard homesteader.

Have you always wondered about the phenomena of sustainable living?

Would you like to transform your home into a self-sufficient, eco-friendly paradise?

Do you want to grow your own organic food, raise healthy livestock, or use renewable energy sources?

Backyard Homesteading covers tons of different projects and activities, from producing organic products such as food and wine to building furniture, and using solar power as an energy source. When homesteading, you are basically trying to produce everything you can usually get in stores and shops. The main goal of this way of living is not only to nurture our mother nature but also to save money and become financially independent in the long term.

This audiobook is a great way to start transforming your home and life. Here, you’ll find everything you need to know about backyard homesteading, and how you can do it even if you live in a city, and have little or no space for agriculture.

Here’s what you’ll learn:

  • What is backyard homesteading, what it entails and how to become a homesteader
  • How to start this project the right way, by following important homesteading principles
  • How to homestead if you live in the city or own a very small backyard
  • Techniques for gardening and producing fruits and vegetables
  • And much more!

Just imagine what amount of money you would save every month if you didn’t have to buy your food, wines or pay your energy bills!

Join thousands of people living a healthy, eco-friendly, fulfilling life!

frequently repeats entire sections

Entire sections are regularly repeated back-to-back. Long lists break the flow of information and advice, leaving the listener what the takeaway of another list should have been. An incredibly long and legalese introduction keeps the listener from beginning the book immediately. Overall, not a particularly useful source of information, and I would not recommend adding this to your library.

Great for beginners!!!

If homesteading is new to you - then this is a great read! If you are living a semi-homestead life already then a lot of the info will be review to you. But the author goes into good detail on a number of topics. Thanks for a good resource!

useful

This book takes an intimidating (large) subject and makes it seem achievable and fun. The organization of the book is logical. The drawings are excellent and very helpful.

My wife loved this book

My wife loved this book. She was looking into starting a garden, and this book has everything you need to know, and then some. Starting a garden, planning your garden, running a garden in winter with a hot compost, various things to do with what you harvest, like pickling, making jams, beer, wine, etc.

I highly recommend this audiobook

This book even gives advice on livestock, from picking the animal, building the cages, caring for it, and eventually butchering it. Just a very thorough, great, book.

Wonderful audio book

The idea of having so much food in such a small space is so grand that it makes the book worth having, even if it's to just dream a little. It's hard work to pack so much into a small space but for many that's all you've got.
