For anyone who yearns for the “good ol’ days”, A Householder’s Guide to the Universe is the book for them. It lays the groundwork for how to commit to a life of progressive homemaking and urban farming. It’s laid out by season, with different tasks and lessons each month that will, ideally, lead to a life less dependent on outside sustenance.

Fasenfest talks about everything from backyard farms to food preservation. She makes the point that modern conveniences have led us to the economical and environmental issues we face today, so maybe going back to basics is just what we need.
