May 2012 Featured Book Giveaway: “Homesweet Homegrown” by Robyn Jasko

UPDATE: Congrats to this month’s winner, Khadijah! If you’d like to purchase this book for yourself, here’s a link.

It’s that time again! Time to announce another book giveaway.

This month’s featured giveaway is Homesweet Homegrown: How to Grow, Make, and Store Food No Matter Where You Live by Robyn Jasko.

This is Robyn:

And this is an excerpt from Robyn’s email to me:

In addition to raising awareness of GMOS, organics and heirlooms,  HSHG encourages people to start their own modern homestead, complete with grow guides for 25 crops, easy recipes by vegetable, diy garden projects, canning/fermenting and food storage guides, and plans for starting a garden no matter where you live.

This book was inspired from my site Grow, which I started with the mission to empower people everywhere to have the tools, know how and moxie to grow their own food.

You can read more in this press release.

  1. I love Robyn’s mention of “moxie”…she looks like she could add some energy into the subject of food production and preservation! I used to help my grandmother with so many of her food-related projects, including canning. I wish now that I had taken notes. Books like Robyn’s are so important, to get the message to those who don’t have someone to show them the way.

  2. My personal goal this year is to learn to can. I freeze a lot of our extra produce, but canning terrifies me! This looks like a great book–can’t wait to read it!

  3. “Home Sweet, Home Grown” by Robyn Jasko sounds like an excellent book for any gardener. Thanks for contributing to our gardening world.

  4. This book looks fantastic. I’d love to have a copy.

  5. This book looks like an interesting read. Thanks for the giveaway!
