I’m very excited to share with you that I’ve begun working on a book titled Your Own Hands: Self Reliant Projects for Independent Living. The work is progressing quickly and I have plenty of interesting material to fit in. Prospectively, it will be a book with both a good amount of practical topics and discussion of local and alternative economy. I will give updates on the progress here and on my Facebook page.
As I’m aiming to create something more than a how-to book or social essay, I’m looking for real-life stories to add a more personal dimension, and here is where you come into the picture! If you are a homesteader, organic farmer, artisan, or local business owner; if you’ve built a unique and interesting house, created a productive backyard garden or designed a useful water-recycling system; if, in short, you have a story relating to any aspect of simple, sustainable, self-reliant living, I’d love to hear from you.
Simply write to me through the blog contact form and share your experience, along with your full name, place of residence and, if relevant, a link to your website or social media page.
