Andrea Chesman on homesteading

The Free Press interviewed Riptonite Andrea Chesman about skills and practices for homesteading.

The article quotes Andrea offering "Five tips for exploring self-sustainability"

  1. Plan a garden for next summer. 
  2. If considering animals, “chickens are the gateway animal.” 
  3. Identify maple trees on property and try backyard sugaring next spring. 
  4. Scout for old apple trees on your property or in your neighborhood 
  5. Think about what you might have to barter with others.

The article also references Andrea's latest book, The Backyard Homestead Book of Kitchen Know-How.
