Celebrate local food with Vermont's own self-sufficiency maven! Abigail will bring homemade crackers for you to sample, and will demonstrate how to make yogurt cheese. Then, there will be plenty of time for questions and book signing.
Abigail R. Gehring, author of The Ultimate Self-Sufficiency Handbook and many other Green Living titles, may be the face of the new self-reliance revolution: just like the movement itself, she does not confine herself to either the rural or urban environment (she splits her time between New York City and Windham, Vermont) and she has equally firm footing in both the traditional (she was home-schooled in Vermont) and the modern (“organic” and “green” are not just buzzwords to her).
Abigail is the author or editor of Back to Basics, Homesteading, Self-Sufficiency, The Back to Basics Handbook, The Homesteading Handbook, and The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Country Living. She’s practiced self-sufficient living since her childhood in Vermont, being home-schooled, home-canning jams and jellies, and enjoying natural crafts. She divides her time between New York City and Windham, Vermont.
