In barnyards and backyards, on rooftops and in alleyways, a movement is happening—the modern homesteading movement. Whether it’s growing a vegetable garden, tending chickens, or pickling cucumbers, people everywhere are taking charge of their own food supply. Renowned homesteader Ashley English gives newcomers her time-honored suggestions and inspiring advice on everything from preserving jams to whipping butter and keeping a hive of honeybees.
