When you’re a homesteader, you face many challenges: from a simple cold, to an earache in your child, fleas on the dog, or worms in your goat. Medicines and treatments are never cheap, and are often vague. Wouldn't it be great to grow, forage, and create natural remedies yourself? Look no further than The Herbal Handbook for Homesteaders!
I recently learned that the term homestead is a word with ties to the Homestead Act of 1862 which was rife with racism and colonization. The blog Grow & Resist provides a thorough explanation into the historic, social, and cultural implications of the word here. While I can't go back and change the books that have already been printed, your purchase contributes to the WANDER School's direct anti-racism and reparation work with underserved communities. We apologize to the BIPOC community for this potentially triggering offense. We are committed to staying informed and doing better.
