        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.

        Long before supermarkets taught us what we should buy to eat, we simply looked around and ate what looked good. A Curious Harvest marks a return to this kind of thinking. Focusing on ingredients rather than finished dishes, Maximus Thaler of The Gleaners’ Kitchen offers a choose-your-own primer for preparing tasty, nutritious meals without dogma or shopping lists. Inside, each ingredient (ranging from the common to the curious) is beautifully and reverently illustrated by Dayna Safferstein. On each page you’ll find information about storing and preparing, when to roast and when to juice, and what goes well with what. What you won’t find are complicated recipes requiring expensive trips to the supermarket. The result is nothing short of radical.

        As a student of the past, Sam Moore learned his lessons well.
