Future-Steading: Live like tomorrow matters
Practical skills, recipes and rituals for a simpler life
A stunningly illustrated practical guide to growing, preserving and sharing the food that grounds us.
From Joel Salatin and Michael Pollan, comes a joyful and practical guide to looking after the earth wherever you call home.
'Future-Steading' is a practical and inspirational guide to living in a way that values tomorrow: a slower, simpler, steadier existence that is healthier for you, your home, and the environment.
Whether you live in a city apartment, in the suburbs or on twenty acres, the principles of future-steading offer easy-to-understand information and hands-on ideas. Learn to grow delicious food and medicinal plants; share rituals with loved ones through the seasons; feast on healthy home-cooked food for the family; nourish body and soul with outdoor expeditions and moments of rest; and create wonders with your hands.
This welcoming handbook begins by showing how future-steading works in an accessible and practical explainer, before venturing through six seasonal chapters - Awakening, Alive, High Heat, Harvest, The Turning, and Deep Chill - filled with inspiration for the garden, including making fences and wicking beds, along with 30+ rewarding recipes for slow, nourishing and easy meals.
Grow, store, eat, preserve and share food that deepens the connections you have with your household, your soil, and those around you.
