"If you want to live off the land and grow a regenerative homestead, this book is a great primer into essential steps: from siting your garden and understanding design principles to wild foraging and home preserves. Roxanne is full of good advice!" -Zach Loeks, director of the Ecosystem Solution Institute and author of The Permaculture Market Garden and The Edible Ecosystem Solution "In Holistic Homesteading, Roxanne Ahern lays out the why and the how of living a more grounded and meaningful existence through the simple, beautiful, everyday acts of home production. It was once commonplace for our ancestors to mark the days and the seasons through the production happening in the home: the flush of the summer garden, the work of storage in autumn, the renewal and abundance of spring, the simple dance between human culture and animal husbandry and the delicate care of the plant world. Holistic Homesteading invites us back in to participate in this most essential and meaningful of human tasks: the work and joy of making a living from the land and reveling in its abundance." -Dr. Ashley Colby, environmental sociologist, director of Rizoma Field School, and author of Subsistence Agriculture in the US: Reconnecting to Work, Nature and Community "Holistic Homesteading offers a wide array of information on finding land, starting a homestead, and enjoying the rhythms of a land-based lifestyle. Filled with practical tips and important things to consider along the way, it's a perfect book for inspiration at any point in your homesteading journey." -Tao Orion, Resilience Permaculture Design, LLC, author of Beyond the War on Invasive Species: A Permaculture Approach to Ecosystem Restoration
