THE SELF-SUFFICIENT BACKYARD
Author: Ron Melchiore, Johanna Melchiore
Many people daydream about a self-sufficient existence. A few rare ones live it every day. Ron and Johanna are what some people call modern-day pioneers. Ever since the late 1970s, they’ve been surviving and thriving off-the-grid by:
- Growing their own food year-round
- Collecting enough water for drinking, cooking, and bathing
- Making their natural remedies from backyard plants
- Heating the house and getting hot water practically for free
- Generating the electricity needed by their entire homestead from solar and wind
- Plus, many…many others!
In their new book, The Self-Sufficient Backyard: For the Independent Homesteaders, they share the homesteading and self-sufficiency knowledge they’ve acquired over 40 years for the first time.
This is simply a must-have for anyone interested in going off-the-grid or just saving and making some money on their property. And it all adds up! Ron and Johanna don’t have a big pension to fall back on, but they still manage to make a more than decent living just with what their tiny ¼-acre homestead produces.
That’s how little you need to be self-sufficient in modern-day America. And the best part is that it doesn’t matter if that property is a few acres big or just a tiny apartment in the city. Everything inside the book can be upscaled or downscaled to fit your daily needs.
With over 100 practical DIY projects, there is something for everybody’s property inside The Self-Sufficient Backyard: For the Independent Homesteader – so get ready to start living the life others will keep dreaming about.
