The weekly post where I share with you homestead relevant items from all around the web that have caught my eye in the last week. Kick back and enjoy this smorgasbord of internet variety.
The Homestead Forum
I’m not traveling too far around the web with this first link. We have a brand new forum just getting started and I think it’s going to be great place to share your knowledge with others, learn from others who will share their gifts and a great place to build community.
All we need are a bunch of folks contributing and being active. So click above on the forum link, sign up as a member and dive in. http://thehomesteadforum.com
Permaculture Design Course
177 hours of video: the 2017 Permaculture Design Course and Appropriate Technology Course
This is the most affordable video course I’ve came across for the amount of hours it has and the quality of teachers.
If you’ve ever considered a Permaculture design course, this one might be worth checking out.
The $100 Startup: Reinvent the Way You Make a Living, Do What You Love, and Create a New Future
I just gotta tell you about this book I’m about to finish. If you’ve ever thought about starting a full time business or just a side hustle from your homestead I believe this just might be a must read. The $100 Startup by Chris Guillebeau has a ton of advice and inspiration for anyone with an entrepreneurial mindset.
I’ve actually been listening to it on Audible which I just recently signed up for and got my first month free with two free audiobooks. So If you want to check this book out for free it’s a great way to get it.
