Taking care of ourselves—and the world we all share—begins with how we tend to our own little patch of earth. We at Daedalus have long held the ideals of self-reliance and sustainability close to our hearts, and many of us here have discovered the joy of growing our own food.

We have books to help you put the agrarian wisdom of many minds and many generations to work in your kitchen garden (whether it encompasses a few patio containers or a half-acre plot), and books full of proven and tasty ways to preserve and enjoy the bounty of your garden, from jams and pickles to home brewing. Here too is expert advice on raising (or just enjoying) backyard farm animals from bees to chickens, as well as housing and caring for larger livestock.

We also have books on creating everything from timeless furniture to heirloom quilts, from fences and farm buildings to homespun wool—whether you wish to profit from your labors or simply want to surround yourself with things of your own making.
