Ted and Kathy Carns live in the picturesque Laurel Highlands region of Western Pennsylvania. They have most of the usual modern conveniences: fridge, freezer, washer, computer, cell phone, hot tub, vacuum, hair dryer, flat screen TV with surround sound ... and they do it all without plugging into the power grid. Their house is wood-heated, their fuel is nonpetrol; they grow their own food, put up their harvest, make their own wine, and drop fresh canned peaches into the solar-powered blender for the morning smoothies. It's a simple life that works: zero waste, total recycling, and no “unnecessary necessities.” Others have done this, but the Carns are doing it in such a dramatic, inventive way that people flock to their astonishing Stone Camp home to learn their secrets. More than a dozen universities and colleges in the Tri-State/Mid-Atlantic area bring professors and students to Stone Camp every year to observe firsthand the remarkable lifestyle of Ted and Kathy Carns.

Off On Our Own is Ted Carns' manual for living off-grid, told with Mark Twainesque humor and irreverence: how he created the various systems that power the Stone Camp (including a how-to chapter) and what he thinks about oil, self-reliance, waste, nature and reducing one's carbon footprint to walk more gently on the earth. The book is illustrated throughout with more than 60 black-and-white photos.

PRACTICAL PROJECTS FOR SELF-SUFFICIENCY

Chris Peterson
Paperback

Price: $19.99

Have you ever wanted to build your own chicken coop, cider press or herb-drying rack? How about a clever two-bin composter, horse-blanket washing machine or genuine Langstroth beehive? In Practical Projects for Self-Sufficiency, you'll find these projects and a couple dozen more to help you develop and grow your self-reliant lifestyle. Most self-sufficiency books give you pages of words and a couple of small drawings for an explanation, but this book shows you exactly how to do things, employing beautiful photos and complete plans. The projects are organized into four categories: Food Prep & Preservation, Homestead, Garden and Animals. Among the projects are a simple brooder box for chicks, a jumbo cold frame, a basic loom, a large-capacity soil sifter, fencing, trellises and even a solar oven. So, whether you're a longtime do-it-yourselfer looking to complete your skill set or a newcomer taking your first step toward sustainability, Practical Projects for Self-Sufficiency is the book to get you there.
