Last Chance: Enter to Win a Chelsea Green Starter Library

You’re a beekeeping, seedling starting, chick brooding, sauerkraut-making master, but there’s always another skill you could add to your homesteading repertoire.

Maybe you’ve always wanted to build a straw bale guest house, or a wattle-and-daub woodshed. Or you’ve been thinking about what it would take to grow your own grains as well as your own greens.

Well, homesteader, this is your lucky day! There’s still time to sign up for our latest giveaway to win a selection of books to teach you just what you need to know. We’ve teamed up with the folks at Mother Earth News to offer the following books to one fortunate winner this month.

Chelsea Green publishes standby favorites like Eliot Coleman to more recent “instant classics” like Sandor and Harvey’s books.

The contest ends in mid-November so don’t delay.

Sign up here for your chance to win.
