A Householder’s Guide to the Universe
A Calendar of Basics for the Home and Beyond
In an era when go local, organic food, and sustainability are one the tip of everyone’s tongues, Harriet Fasenfest’s A Householder’s Guide to the Universe takes up the banner of progressive homemaking and urban farming as a way to confront the political, social, and environmental issues facing our world today.
In A Householder’s Guide to the Universe, Harriet Fasenfest invites the reader into her home, garden, and kitchen. With brightness, joy, and humor, she shares advice and offers practical solutions organized according to season and presented in monthly installments—lessons she’s learned in how to shop, garden, preserve and cook food, and more, all of which pave the way for a life rooted in self-reliance, sustainability, and simplicity. It’s a book about making your house your home, finding certainty and comfort in an uncertain world, embracing the present and living where you are while preparing for a beautiful future.
