“As I looked more closely at the role homemaking could play in revitalizing our local food system, I saw that the position was a linch-pin for more than just making use of garden produce and chicken carcasses. Individuals who had taken this path in life were building a great bridge from our existing extractive economy – where corporate wealth was regarded as the foundation of economic health, where mining our earth’s resources and exploiting our international neighbors was accepted as simply the cost of doing business – to a life-serving economy, where the goal is…to generate a living for all, rather than a killing for a few, where our resources are sustained, our waters are kept clean, our air pure, and families can lead meaningful and joyful lives.”

-Shannon Hayes. Radical Homemakers: Reclaiming Domesticity from a Consumer Culture

  1. I love More-With-Less. I also have Extending the Table, another book from that “series”.

    • I’ll have to check out Extending the Table! Thanks for the recommendation. I’ve just barely scratched the surface of More-With-Less, but am thoroughly enjoying it so far.

  2. Have you read “Simply in Season”? It’s a good one, especially if you’re a gardener or try to eat what is seasonal. Good thoughts here Bria!
