The Woodland Homestead, How to Make Your Land More Productive and Live More Self-Sufficiently in the Woods, Brett McLeod
Genre:Outdoors & Nature, Self-Help
Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
I was brought up in a home where every bit of land was used, and if dad couldn’t grow it then we rarely ate it...we lived in a council house with a largish garden and he had 2/3 acre of allotments. We had goats for milk ( awful stuff! and the damn things are born to escape and eat what they shouldn’t)

I received a digital copy of this title from the publisher via Netgalley.

Despite not living in North America, or indeed anywhere near a woodland, I was drawn to request this book because there's a slim possibility that I may one day live near woodland, and thought it might have some generally handy information that might just be interesting to know.

The Woodland Homestead is filled with description, exceptional sketches, and detailed information about how to turn your messy forested lot into a beautiful and productive Woodland farm. Brett McLeod shows how to make a cabin, furniture, fences, silvopastures(woodland pastures), charcoal far superior to store-bought, animal fodder and human food. Woodland Homestead is a wonderful resource for anyone with a wooded lot of any size.

I freely admit that there was a good third of the book that I couldn't really quite follow -- I learn better doing than reading, but! Wow, what a comprehensive and well written guide to woodlot maintenance. I've always wanted to learn more about it, and this was an accessible and interesting read.
