About this ebook

Grow your own food and medicine with a step-by-step guide from the founder of The Grow Network

Imagine cultivating enough food to slash your grocery shopping in half--all in less than an hour a day in your own backyard. Sounds impossible, right? Marjory Wildcraft says it's not: She's been homesteading for almost twenty years and founded The Grow Network to teach hundreds of thousands of others--some with very little space or time, some city dwellers with rooftop gardens--how to do the same, from gardening, to raising chickens, to composting, to medicine-making.

Wildcraft started her homesteading journey in search of a more sustainable and financially secure way of life. As she says, self-sufficiency offers practical rewards, but the real payoff is "true wealth": health, family, community, meaningful work, and living a life with purpose. This empowering way of life is possible for anyone who has a patch of dirt, small or large. The Grow System includes:
   Essential advice for creating a balanced ecosystem in your backyard, with a basic recipe for homemade fertilizer
   Step-by-step instructions for setting up a chicken coop and information on choosing the right breed
   Home remedies for 12 common ailments, with 8 must-know medicine preparations. 

The Grow System provides a comprehensive strategy for producing healthy food and herbal medicine at home, and reclaiming the skills our ancestors used every day. It helps connect us to the environment and empowers us to lead healthier lives, without relying on big systems that are out of our control and insecure. It offers a path to a rich, reliable, and deeply satisfying life.

Inspiring and informative and very practical for living a genuinely healthy life. For years I have been doing a little here and there growing a few plants and trees while being concerned with my health. Now I really want to ramp it up. This looks like a guide I will really use I got both the paperback and the E book.

Thoroughly enjoyed this "recipe for healthy living" as it applies to me and anyone ready for a way of life that is satisfying and fulfilling. The book kept my interest throughout and has the added bonus of having all I need to know to put this healthy way of living into action. This is a "hands on" guide for anyone ready for successful living. I highly recommend this book for anyone who would like to get back to the basics of having control over what we put in our bodies and being in charge of our own destinies. Thanks to Marjory for a real "eye-opener" on what it takes to feel whole.

This one of the best books suitable for every household and small farmers. I am from Sri Lanka and descends from a rice paddy farming generation. So I understood the value of this master piece. I am highly recommending this book for everybody who want to grow their own food. A+ Five star rated book for everyone who love agriculture. Masterpiece for students to professional farmers. Best wishes for Marjory Wildcraft.
