Your Custom Homestead: Awakening a Fresh Vision of Homesteading
Your Custom Homestead. is written by Jill Winger of The Prairie Homestead. Her blog is full of useful tips if you are thinking of homesteading yourself (or if you already are!). What is unique about Jill and her book, though, is that she is a firm believer that ANYONE can homestead. You with the tiny city lot? Yep. You in the one bedroom apartment? Yep. According to Jill, homesteading is a mindset. If you want to do it, you go right ahead and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. Click here to read more about her homesteading philosophy.
Why Your Custom Homestead. is for everyone
Why did you come to read Healthy People, Healthy Planet? Was is because you appreciated my posts on easy ways to live an eco-friendly, natural life? Or was my journey to real food and health through my elimination diet what drew you in? Either way, the principles of Your Custom Homestead. will fit right into the life of anyone who wants to reduce their footprint, live healthy, and be more self-sufficient, regardless of their lifestyle. While Jill may own goats and have a large garden (and much more), she knows that not everyone can do that and she addresses that in her book. And, even better, since her book is filled with advice on how to homestead anywhere, as your goals, circumstances, and options grow and change, Your Custom Homestead. will give you the tools to keep your homesteading dream alive.

I have read and skimmed many books on homesteading. They can be very overwhelming, and quite discouraging as I think about the apartment I will be living in for the next 5-6 years until I finish school. But Your Custom Homestead. is completely different! It is an encouraging work that anyone with dreams of self-sufficiency, or even just a vegetable garden, will find incredibly helpful.
