Dear MOTHER: August/September 2013

Reader letters about self-sufficiency and sustainable living, the U.S. Army’s net-zero initiative, backyard chickens, the White House garden, the Puyallup MOTHER EARTH NEWS FAIR, an outdoor wood boiler, The Encyclopedia of Country Living, raised garden beds and pressure canning.

Will Allen spoke at the MOTHER EARTH NEWS FAIR about his Grower Power programs. He, and other FAIR speakers, inspired readers like Blake McCoy to change their lives.
