The Urban Homestead by Kelly Coyne and Erik Knutzen

As Heard on The Daily Gardener Podcast:

Copy of Grow That #Garden Library (3)

Today's book recommendation: The Urban Homestead by Kelly Coyne and Erik Knutzen

The 2010 book is the updated version of the best-selling classic. It features a dozen new projects.

The New York Times said this book was the "contemporary bible" on Urban Homesteading.

This book is an excellent resource. It's an idea book and  that gives you the tools to get started on path to self-sufficiency. It offers fantastic examples of how, no matter the size of your space, you can support yourself and your family in an environmentally-responsible way.

The authors, Kelly Coyne and Erik Knutzen, are creators of the blog Root Simple, a green living and self-reliance resource for homesteaders, urban and otherwise. They live in Los Angeles.
