Building Resources~ and a Give Away~

Amy has teamed up with Marjory Wildcraft and they are having a give away at Amy's place-- Homestead Revival   

They are offering a DVD set on Backyard Food Production which includes lots of tips and ideas for the sustainable gardener. 

I've not seen it; but here are a few of the tips and ideas that are included (from Amy's blog) 

The DVD is broken down into the following segments:

• An overview of how she began her journey and her homestead's situation in terms of climate and soil
• Watering solutions - sources, harvesting, and containment
• Gardening - how she raises enough to feed her family, and I mean all of it!
• Rabbits as a sustainable protein source
• Home butchering (rabbits are done in detail and then a couple of other small animals are addressed as well)
• Poultry as another sustainable protein source (more for eggs than meat, but she does discuss meat)
• Dogs as a working animal on your homestead
• Perennials: Orchards, Food Forests, and Edible Landscaping (Permaculture)
• Other Essentials: everything from solar food dehydration to hog panels!

Maybe like me you've not ever heard of Marjory Wildcraft ; but are looking for information on sustainable gardening, for your backyard at home or you'd like to learn more about why a little bit of home grown food would be helpful for today.  Please click on the link and  watch this free video from her site: Why Your Grocery Bill Will Double this Year and What You Can Do About It (VIDEO)

I'm personally excited about a chance to win and start my own collection of resources by adding her informative DVD's (and experience) to my home.

God Bless you and Thanks for reading!
