Benefits of Homesteading
A homestead is a place where people grow their own food, raise their own animals, and live a self-sufficient life. A homestead can be a suburban, rural or urban space.
To make a homestead, you need a lot of hard work and commitment. You also need to make sure that you have the right tools for the job.
A Richfield author of three books about food preservation is the co-author of a new book about suburban homesteading.
Stephanie Thurow’s latest book, “Small-Scale Homesteading,” offers advice on many ways to do it yourself from a modest suburban setting. From raising chickens for their eggs to making candles, Thurow and co-author Michelle Bruhn detail ways to be more self-sufficient in an urban environment.
