Educational Tools for Homestead Beginners
Since my interests this past year have all been geared toward homesteading, I received some wonderfully rich tools to help educate and guide my experiences. Maybe these tools can help you too!
A subscription to MaryJane’s Farm Magazine. This woman is the shiznit! She did what I am currently doing almost 30 years ago…somewhat ironic considering I am 32 today. Her idea to start a homestead, live organically and create natural recipes far preceded my dream of doing the same. What a wonderful magazine to help me, and other woman, find a voice with our dreams of simple living.
I received a few great books too. They are listed here:
- Ed Begley, Jr’s Guide to Sustainable Living
- The Encyclopedia of Country Living
- Medicinal Herbs: A Beginner’s Guide
- Hands On Healing Remedies
These books will help you start your new homestead life by teaching you basics, giving you insight into new ways of living and guiding you through all-natural recipes for healthy living and medicinal practices.
Hey, my new life on our “mini-farm” has me trying all sorts of new things from gardening to raising livestock for food to creating homemade medicines for my kids. I have NO CLUE what I am doing, but at least I have some help. The hard part to starting this simple life was taking the leap of faith and making it happen. Now I have the proper tools to keep me going.
And now you do too!
Side note…I remember when birthday presents were things like toys, movie tickets and candy. I guess when you get older and your interests become more solid, birthday gifts become much more focused. I am not complaining at all, but I sure am looking forward to someone giving me some candy. Chocolate please!
