Homesteaders' Book Club

The journey toward self-sufficiency is loaded with opportunities for learning – whether you’re raising animals for the first time, figuring out how to grow all the vegetables you need for a year, or deciding whether to install solar panels. 

But self-sufficiency doesn’t have to mean going it alone.  Over the course of the last year, I have met and connected with thousands of other homesteaders, gardeners, and folks dedicated to sustainable living over social media.  This community tends to be incredibly supportive, which is refreshing when it comes to social media.  They also love learning from each other.

In that spirit, and in collaboration with some excellent partners, I am incredibly excited to invite you to join our Homesteaders’ Book Club!  This virtual book club is hosted through a Facebook Group and invites those who are interested in self-sufficiency – no matter where they are on the journey – to join in reading a related book during each season of the year.

Each season’s read is sponsored by a partnering publisher, some of whom I’ve met through my great relationship with Mother Earth News.  The summer 2018 book group was sponsored by Chelsea Green Publishing and we focused on frugal living.  We read The Art of Frugal Hedonism and book group members were immediately taken by the creative and alternative ideas contained within its pages.



There are so many great homesteading books out there – here’s your chance to read them along with others and discuss what you are learning in a supportive online environment!

You could not have picked a more fake book for October. Does anyone even Google the author to find out the story? She doesn't homestead for a living, she begs and it's always something. I would love to join this club but your pick for October shows me you're not a serious book club for homesteaders.

I'm with Chris. Set this reading club idea up aside from the money-mongers and you will provide homesteaders a great service.
