This week at Happy Simple Living, I’m giving away two brand spankin’ new copies of Anna Hess’s new book, The Weekend Homesteader: A Twelve-Month Guide to Self-Sufficiency. Anna blogs over at The Walden Effect, where she writes about simple living and homesteading from the 58-acre property where she lives with her husband in Virginia.
For those of us who don’t live on a farm but still long to be more self-sufficient, this book is full of great ideas. Anna shares photos, experiences and thoughts about topics like finding room and setting goals for your homestead, garden planning, budgeting, eating seasonally, storing drinking water, turning trash into treasures, backup lighting and learning to enjoy what you’ve got.
I loved reading her detailed, budget-conscious descriptions and instructions about raising chickens, baking bread, making a rain barrel, growing edible mushrooms and saving seeds.
If you’d like to win a copy of this book, just comment at Happy Simple Living and tell us what project you’d most like to implement on your own homestead in the future. Let’s keep this open through next Thursday, November 15 at midnight MST, and I’ll give the books away on Friday.
Thanks to Anna and Skyhorse Publishing for providing the books for this giveaway, and good luck to all of you!
