SKIP is a bridge to connect aspiring homesteaders with older folks looking for someone to steward their land.

Are you young and dreading a costly journey through college and the rat race? Will you pursue money to reach your goals sooner or follow your passions and struggle financially? Are you one of the many young people who wish they could get their hands dirty helping the environment and doing meaningful work?

Are you older and struggling to decide who will care for your land as you age or after you pass? Your kids don't want to live there and would sell it to developers. You don't know any younger people who would keep it operating as a farm or homestead. Who will tend the orchard, nurture the garden and continue your life's work? Whom can you trust with your little patch of heaven?

Neither of these groups could easily find each other - until now! SKIP is a skill-building framework with 22 badges for homesteading activities like gardening, textiles, natural building, and animal care. This free, hands-on program is as rigorous as college. Accomplishments are verified online as you progress through the levels. The certification process ensures the candidates are worthy and gives them worldwide visibility. Landowners can feel relieved; they can choose from a list of qualified stewards to carry on their legacy.

Such a timely book!

My son has already started on several of the projects. As parents, my husband and I love to see the motivation this book provides to build skills and the outline of what to do. Even if he does not end up inheriting property, this book will have equipped him in so many ways for his future profession.
We look forward to meeting some farmers who wish to work with the younger generation as a result of this book.

This is great to hear, Sarah! Thanks so much for your order and your review. We hope your son enjoys this title and is able to utilize the information it shares. :)
