You are here: Home Contests Insteading Giveaway – September 2018 Insteading Giveaway – September 2018 by Kane Jamison September 4, 2018, 10:58 am 90 Comments Whether you’re a seasoned homesteader or are just dipping your toes into the world of gardening and chickens, there are some resources that everyone can benefit from. While gardening forums and blogs are a helpful source of information, sometime its best to get back to the basics: good old fashion books! For this month’s contest, we’re giving away two urban homesteading libraries including The Backyard Homestead, Practical Permaculture, Storey’s Guide to Raising Chickens, and The Beekeeper’s Bible. Do you want to learn more about getting involved with homesteading? Check out our articles on living off the grid, frugal living, and 5 questions to ask yourself before becoming a homesteader.
