How To Build An Off-Grid Home Without ANY Construction Skills

Homesteaders often spend most of their time devoted to their gardens and livestock, all the while ignoring a hidden gem just beyond their lawn: the woods.

Those thick brambles and gnarled trees are a homesteading goldmine and overlooked source of cash – but only if we know what to do.

This week’s guest on Off The Grid Radio tells us how homesteaders and off-gridders can use their wooded areas for everything from feeding livestock to making extra money. His name is Brett McLeod, and he is the author of The Woodland Homestead: How to Make Your Land More Productive and Live More Self-Sufficiently in the Woods. He also is a homesteader and a professor of forestry and natural resources at Paul Smith’s College in upstate New York.

Brett tells us:

  • How homesteaders can turn their woods into a cash source.
  • How wooded areas can be used as a low-cost way to feed livestock.
  • How downed trees can transform the way you grow vegetables.
  • How your woods can be used to grow foods you can’t grow in a traditional plot of land.

The good news, McLeod says, is that a woodland homestead can be as small as one acre. If you’ve always wanted to make use of your woods and didn’t know what to do, then this week’s show is for you!
