Homesteading Education Month Book Giveaway

6/27/2012 10:40:47 AM


Homesteading Month Logo For WebWe're gearing up for the fast-approaching Homesteading Education Month this September. We are thrilled to see all the events that have been registered and all the speakers who have been listed in our speaker finder. The ultimate goal of this event is for our Web pages to help coordinate as many local homesteading fairs, presentations or tours as possible. To succeed, we need you!

Have you been thinking about how you can teach others the homesteading skills you've learned over the years? Whether you've picked up tips from the pages of MOTHER EARTH NEWS or elsewhere, we know you could help those around you take their first steps toward a more satisfying, self-sufficient lifestyle. Invite friends over to help you can peaches or pickle those cucumbers in your garden, lead a tour of your favorite local farmers market, or even give a presentation on your beekeeping practices. Don't hold back — and here's one more reason you should register an event today: New Society Publishers has agreed to award one kit of homesteading books to a lucky homesteader who registers an event on our Homesteading Month pages this week!

How the Book Giveaway Works

1. Go to our International Homesteading Eduation month pages and register an event for this September.

2. Post the title of the event in the comments field below. You can do this easily while logged in with your Facebook, Twitter or other social media account (and then tell all your friends easily, too!).

3. We will choose one of the new events posted in the comments field as the lucky winner of a kit of five different homesteading books of his/her choice from New Society Publishers. We will get in touch with you the next week after the contest closes.

What are you waiting for? Sign up today!
