The inspirational story of how one couple ditched their careers in New York City to move to rural New Mexico, where they made, built, invented, foraged, and grew all they needed to live self-sufficiently. Alongside their personal story, Wendy presents the discovery of a fulfilling lifestyle that relies less on money. She teaches the art living from waste and from nature and the practical applications of making biofuel, DIY appliances for automating the homestead, structures, gardens, and foraging for food and medicines. Wendy presents reasons for makers to share their innovations and ideas through open source and creative commons licenses.
