A cookbook and backyard gardening and homesteading guide for women who want to grow food efficiently, cook seasonal recipes, or even try foraging, camping, and living off the land.
Self-sufficiency is the ultimate girl power
Georgia Pellegrini, outdoor adventurer and chef, helps you roll up your sleeves and tap into your pioneer spirit. Grow a small-space garden and preserve a little deliciousness for the cold months; assemble the makings of a self-sufficient pantry; learn to navigate without a compass for your next camping trip; or even forage for plants that give you energy.
Whether you’re a full-time homesteader, a weekend farmer’s market devoté, or anyone looking to do more by hand, this overflowing resource will help you hone new skills in the kitchen, garden, and great outdoors. It includes:
· More than 100 recipes for garden-to-table dishes, preserves, and cured foods
· Small-space gardening advice on building a raised bed, choosing what to grow, and saving seeds
· DIY projects, such as Mason jar lanterns and homemade notecards
· Superwoman skills like assembling a 48- hour survival toolkit in an Altoids tin
Packed with beautiful photographs and illustrations, Modern Pioneering proves that becoming more self-sufficient not only means being empowered, but also having a lot more fun.So, I may have squealed a bit with delight when I saw this book available. I mean, hello, I'm all trying-my-best-to-homestead over here. We've even recently added chickens to our family (I know, we are super stoked too). Well, not quite yet, they'll be here next week. And when I saw this book, clicked on it and read the description, it was like fate. This book HAD to have been written just for me.
