Backyard Homesteading addresses the needs of many people who want to take control of the food they eat and the products they use--even if they live in a urban or suburban house on a typical-size lot. It shows homeowners how to turn their yard into a productive and wholesome "homestead" that allows them to grow their own fruits and vegetables, and raise farm animals, including chickens and goats. Backyard Homesteading covers the laws and regulations of raising livestock in populated areas and demonstrates to readers how to use and preserve the bounty they produce.

Who doesn’t want to shrink their carbon footprint, save money, and eat homegrown food whenever possible? Even readers who are very much on the grid will embrace this large, fully-illustrated guide on the basics of living the good, clean life. It’s written with country lovers in mind—even those who currently live in the city. Whether you live in the city, the suburbs, or even the wilderness, there is plenty you can do to improve your life from a green perspective. Got sunlight? Start container gardening.

Learn to use rainwater to augment water supplies. Make your own soap and hand lotion. Consider keeping chickens for the eggs. From what to eat to supporting sustainable restaurants to avoiding dry cleaning, this book offers information on anything a homesteader needs—and more.

"If you've spent any time watching the TV news lately, chances are you've seen at least one piece about the environment -- and how our lifestyle has torn it apart over the last 100 years. It's hard to imagine describing modern life without using the words "green" and "environment." Most scientists consider our planet under threat, and as various media outlets continue to proclaim, it is up to us to do something about it. However, many of us don't know what to do. We feel hopelessly lost when it comes to strategies and methods that will enable us to look after our planet. In fact, many of us feel that our existence actively harms our world on a daily basis. Relax. You're not killing the planet. And the good news is that living sustainably, in a way that helps protect the environment, is not an unattainable dream. If you proceed slowly and carefully, you can make small changes here and there that will push you towards a life of true sustainability." --P. [4] of cover.
