Mother Earth News 52 Homestead Skills follows homesteader Kimberlee Bastien as she learns one homesteading skill per week over an entire year. The book details Bastien’s adventures, from building a beehive and becoming a beekeeper to creating her own laundry and dish soap. Whether you already live on a homestead, are transitioning onto one, or are only thinking about it, 52 Homestead Skills will help turn your dreams into a life worth living.

Packed with skills such as making deodorant, building a chicken chunnel, and freezing jam, the 52 projects in this book will prove helpful to any homesteader (or anyone looking to do more on their own). Life on a homestead might not always be easy, but as Bastien writes, “The learning never ends, and that’s OK. Because life without a challenge would be boring.”

This book will help you through the hardest parts of living on a homestead and add some fun to the mix!

love it!

This book is very nicely done. Easy to read, great pictures and well structured.
I really like the idea of "monthly" skills to learn! Learning a skill or two a month is a wonderful method to keep a person from getting overwhelmed with too much information in too short a period of time. I am planning to order the same book for my daughter for Christmas ;)
