The popular permaculturalist, film producer and author, Justin Rhodes, this year released his new book: The Rooted Life: Cultivating Health and Wholeness Through Growing your own Food.
What this book offers is inspiration and practical insight, whatever your motivation. Whether it is to boost health, save or make money, or you just want to feel a closer connection to the food you eat, this book will walk that journey with you. It will speak to anyone who is tempted to dip a toe and take their life in a new direction. And you don’t have to come at this with a wealth of skills or knowledge, Rhodes kicked off with a packet of seeds from his local grocery store.
The Rooted Life builds on the groundbreaking work Rhodes has been doing through his online resource, Abundant Permaculture. Packed with permaculture articles, educational films and business tips and tricks, it has long been the go-to place for people passionate about growing their own food, whatever stage they’re at.
The hit YouTube homesteader has been using permaculture methods on his 75 acre family farm near Asheville NC for decades, and there are some amazing pictures in the book showing what day-to-day life looks like for this family. But don’t worry if you are not looking out onto 75 acres, this book is full of imaginative ways you can transform any space to grow your own food.
