With practical examples of alternative building, renewable energy, holistic forestry, no-till gardening, hospitality management, community outreach, and more. For almost twenty years, D Acres of New Hampshire has challenged and expanded the common definition of a farm. As an educational centre that researches, applies, and teaches skills of sustainable living and small-scale organic farming, D Acres serves more than just a single function to its community. By turns it is a hostel for travellers to northern New England, a training center for everything from metal- and woodwork to cob building and seasonal cooking, a gathering place for music, poetry, joke-telling, and potluck meals, and much, much more.
In Community-Scale Homesteading, author and D Acres founder Josh Trought describes not only the history of the project, but its evolving principles and practices, all rooted in the land, its inhabitants, and the joy inherent in collective empowerment.
