THE "HAVE-MORE" PLAN
Author: Ed Robinson, Carolyn Robinson
This back-to-the-land classic, published in 1943, explains how to find land, build a homestead, grow fruits and vegetables, raise livestock, build farm structures, and more.
This classic guide to homesteading is based on solid, practical techniques that remain useful to everyone who wants to learn country skills and increase their self-sufficiency. By turns philosophical and instructional, Ed and Carolyn Robinson share their pioneering approach to efficiently growing vegetables, raising livestock, and building farm structures. Since it was first published in 1943, The “Have-More” Plan has inspired generations of homesteaders to make the most out of whatever land they have available.
About the Author: It has been Ed Robinson and his wife Carolyn's dream that every family can own a home and a little land. Their classic book, The "Have-More" Plan, was written in the 1940s. The book has been kept in print unchanged because it is still, after 50 years, a helpful reference for the home gardener. Over 500,000 people have now discovered how to do things in ways that work simply and well. Ed said, " ...poultry, goats, lettuce, and home canning haven't changed much in the generation since The "Have-More" Plan was first published." Today home gardening seems on the verge of a giant step forward: We can now get more produce on small plots by using plastic cover-ups over raised beds to extend growing seasons. This ushers in a new era for home production."
