This is a great resource site for homesteaders, people

interested in sustainability and survival techniques. There is

so much here that the site deserves its own listing.

Downloading directly from the site is free, but does require

sign up and some information (including info on what you plan

on doing with the materials provided). It’s worth it!

http://www.itdg.org/

 

This is yet another almost incredible information resource for

all things homestead. It will take time, but is well worth the

dig and everything is available for free download.
