Books & Reference materials for Homesteading
Not sure I’m doing this correctly, but thought a somewhat centralized spot would be nice to get some good materials. Here are a few of my favorite old-fashioned books (I’m moving towards starting to re-read books rather than pulling off the internet).
•The Encyclopedia of Country Living. (By Carla Emery).
•Seed to Seed. (Suzanne Ashworth)
•The new complete book of Self-Sufficiency (John Seymour)
•The Tightwad Gazette (Amy Dacyczyn)
•Backwoods Home Magazine
most of these are old, but I still reference them!
Thanks for sharing. I’d be interested what others recommend. Keep it coming.
Hi we have been doing permaculture for sometime now so here are a few of our favorite books.
the holistic orchard- fruit tree care

gaia’s garden good start for permaculture
for medicinal items
the herbal medicine makers handbook
wild wisdom of weeds
also places to get seeds and trees
burnt ridge, one green world, raintree and oikos all good companies we think.
best to order soon as most items already sold out If you are ready too.
hope this helps
My favorite book is The Joy of Gardening by Dick Raymond. If you can find a copy of the old seties, its even better!

This book is what my parents and I used in 1949 to migrate from a small apartment to a 2.5 acre farmette.
This is some news for anyone thinking about growing food. this talk will make you do it faster. Check out the iceage farmer, he just had a video that was unbelievable. Spinach sending email? nano tech in your food! Does not sound like food I want to eat. Like Chris says grow food if you can!
