In 2011, Renee Wilkinson released her first book Modern Homestead: Grow, Raise, Create. Since then she has traveled across North America for book readings, homesteading workshops and lectures. Today you can still find this wonderful guide to homesteading at national retailers, independent bookstores and at your local library.
Description: Sixth-generation gardener Renee Wilkinson embraces the old school while adding a bit of funk in this savvy-smart guide to homesteading. From a windowsill to a sprawling backyard, these are all places we can grow vegetables, make homes for animals, and fill our cupboards with canned decadence, all the while flashing our personal style and taste.
Available from these fine retailers:
