Yes, America We Can Make It … Really

Uncertainty got you down?

The political world may seem like it’s crumbling around us, but this we know: We can make it, America. Literally, we can make things. Houses. Gardens. Food. Below we’ve selected some of our classic how-to and DIY books (and some new favorites) to help you sustain your self, family, and community.

The great thing about Chelsea Green is that while we offer some politically progressive, as well as anarchistic, decentralist, policy reads—our bread and butter is showing you how to make … well … bread and butter. And cold frames. And kimchi and sauerkraut. Our authors teach you all kinds of skills that you may need on the homestead, or in your rural retreat.

In other words, while the political world continues to ebb and crumble, we’ve got each other and every book imaginable to rebuild or sustain our communities, families, and regions.

We invite you to examine your needs may be and select from these books below that offer some core re-skilling information for the home, homestead, farm, and apartment dweller. If you’re not sure about your resiliency level, check out this cool assessment test developed by Ben Falk of The Resilient Farm and Homestead.

Keep Calm and Carry a Book.
