2 Mini Farming - Brett L. Markham
Auteur : Brett L. Markham
Genre : Lifestyle & Home
Mini Farming describes a holistic approach to small-area farming that will show you how to produce 85 percent of an average family’s food on just a quarter acre—and earn $10,000 in cash annually while spending less than half the time that an ordinary job would require. Even if you have never been a farmer or a gardener, this book covers everything you need to know to get started: buying and saving seeds, starting seedlings, establishing raised beds, soil fertility practices, composting, dealing with pest and disease problems, crop rotation, farm planning, and much more. Because self-suf?ciency is the objective, subjects such as raising backyard chickens and home canning are also covered along with numerous methods for keeping costs down and production high. Materials, tools, and techniques are detailed with photographs, tables, diagrams, and illustrations.

8 Living in His Sufficiency - Charles F. Stanley
Auteur : Charles F. Stanley
Genre : Christianity
When something goes wrong, where do you turn for help? For many, the answer is a spouse or a friend, or even a group or an organization. Yet God longs to meet your needs. In fact, the Bible says He is utterly sufficient to satisfy every human need you'll ever experience. In Living in His Sufficiency, Dr. Charles Stanley teaches that the key to embracing God's abundance is a deep relationship with Jesus Christ. Through Him, you have access to help in every area of your life--not just spiritually, but morally, mentally, physically, and emotionally. This direct, insightful study challenges you to depend wholly upon the eternal God, rather than earthly relationships or things, to experience His sufficiency in all circumstances.

Auteur : Eric Brende
Genre : Biographies & Memoirs
What happens when a graduate of MIT, the bastion of technological advancement, and his bride move to a community so primitive in its technology that even Amish groups consider it antiquated?
