 About the Book
A cookbook and backyard gardening and homesteading guide for women who want to grow food efficiently, cook seasonal recipes, or even try foraging, camping, and living off the land.

Self-sufficiency is the ultimate girl power

Georgia Pellegrini, outdoor adventurer and chef, helps you roll up your sleeves and tap into your pioneer spirit. Grow a small-space garden and preserve a little deliciousness for the cold months; assemble the makings of a self-sufficient pantry; learn to navigate without a compass for your next camping trip; or even forage for plants that give you energy.
Whether you’re a full-time homesteader, a weekend farmer’s market devoté, or anyone looking to do more by hand, this overflowing resource will help you hone new skills in the kitchen, garden, and great outdoors. It includes:
·         More than 100 recipes for garden-to-table dishes, preserves, and cured foods
·         Small-space gardening advice on building a raised bed, choosing what to grow, and saving seeds
·         DIY projects, such as Mason jar lanterns and homemade notecards
·         Superwoman skills like assembling a 48- hour survival toolkit in an Altoids tin

Packed with beautiful photographs and illustrations, Modern Pioneering proves that becoming more self-sufficient not only means being empowered, but also having a lot more fun. (Goodreads)

My husband and I have recently started becoming more self-sufficient so this book would come in handy for us. There is so much to learn. Ü

I have been trying to learn little ways to become self-sufficient. We only have a very small garden, but would like to try planting in pots. Keep my pantry full, and try to cook with as many natural ingredients as possible.

I am interested in this book because my sister-in-law is always sending us really cool canned goods like icy pickles, peppers and jams. I have always desired to know how to do such things, but my mom was not that kind of mom. Though I could garden, I could never can. And I really would like to get back to a more basics kind of life. Especially since we hope to one day retire on a nice little plot of land in PA which would be perfect for all these great activities. We have the I need the know how. Thank you for the chance.
