Modern Homestead- Renee Wilkinson

Modern Homestead.. Grow, Raise, Create
by Renee Wilkinson
Fulcrumbooks.com


Sixth generation gardener and homesteader, Renee Wilkinson shares generations of knowledge in thie easy to read book. Books on city homesteading are a bit harder to find than the full farming types of books, and Renee solves that problem by designing her own helpful resource.
Even if you are nestled deep in the heart of a city there are basic things you can grow and raise for a healthier lifestyle.
Renee shares ideas for container gardens, raised beds, and community gardens and gives an indepth look at plants, seeds, soil and compost for utilizing the best resources available to you.
I love her chaper on citified critters! Ideal plans for a mini chicken coop, a 20 by 20 goat yard to house 2 milkers (my favorites), and housing honey bees.
Beautiful color photos draw you into the book and exited the reader to get started on their homesteading!

Thanks so much to Fulcrum Publishing for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I am giving this book away in a Gratitude Giveaway on my blog where you can enter at this link!!
