One of our main goals in publishing is to try and find self-empowering books that help make the world a better and more livable place and then get those puppies out there (and as widespread as possible.) Of course in this era of economic downturns, e-readers, and general end-of-empire nastiness, getting a book from its initial genesis to paper form is not always easy. Put simply, people need worthwhile books, we want to publish worthwhile books, but books ain't cheap to publish. Getting a book out to the public, and doin' it the right way, no matter how noble its intent, is massively expensive and there's no real way around that, them's the rules.
So, we have turned to Kickstarter to help us publish Robyn Jasko and Jennifer Biggs' amazing food-growin'/food-preserving manifesto Homesweet Homegrown: How to Grow, Make, And Store Food, No Matter Where You Live. If any of you generous folks would kick down a dime or three, we would be infinitely stoked and will in turn give you some mega-awesome gifts (see the right-hand sidebar.)
And check back with this page. We're going to be posting original content, updating the gifts, and generally trying to make your generosity pay off right back to YOU.
ABOUT HOMESWEET HOMEGROWN
Robyn Jasko and Jennifer Biggs' Homesweet Homegrown is self-described as “a simple DIY guide to growing, storing, and making your own food, no matter where you live.” An ideal companion to Raleigh Briggs' DIY guide Make Your Place, Jasko and Biggs' debut book will turn you into a healthy, happy farmer even if you live in a big city sky-rise.
Based around eight comprehensive sections (Know, Start, Grow, Plant, Plan, Make, Eat, and Store), this 128-page guide takes you through all the steps of crop nurturing, and gives the goods for everyone from the base beginner to the well-seasoned farmhand. (The recipe section alone is enough to keep you comin' back to this gem for years to come!) Narrated in a friendly, helpful tone by Jasko and held aloft by Biggs' great illustrations, this book is the definition of both awesome and useful.
The book is here if you want a copy!
