Publisher's Summary

A permaculture expert and popular YouTube Homesteader shares the skills and the delights of becoming a part of your own food story in this inspiring, accessible, and beautiful invitation to a more abundant, healthy, and connected life.

Have you ever wanted to experiment with growing your own food but didn’t think you had the space, the time, or the knowledge? Justin Rhodes thought the same thing - until after years battling systemic illness and struggling to provide the kind of wholesome food he wanted for his family, he bought a seed packet at the grocery store and was hooked! Justin discovered the miraculous potential and empowerment of working with nature to grow food for his family, and since that discovery, he has shared his self-taught skills with hundreds of thousands of growers via his popular YouTube channel and website. Whether you're looking for greater food security, better health, tastier food, to save or earn money, connect with your food source, this book is for you. If you're looking for a different kind of life - a life focused on health and wellness - take a look down the road less traveled.   

Looking for every opportunity to pass his hard-earned knowledge onto others, Justin Rhodes created this inspiring and practical invitation to growing your own food and experiencing a more connected, sustainable lifestyle, no matter where you live or how much space you have. Filled with beautiful and inspiring photographs from the Rhodes’ homestead and chock full of resources, including gardening plans, everything you need to know about raising chickens, tips for how to get your kids involved, and even recipes for how to serve up your home-grown goodness, The Rooted Life provides you with the inspiration, the encouragement, and the practical wisdom that you need to begin the journey to a more rooted life.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

He had me until anti-vax

Given that the author has no medical experience, it's highly inappropriate to discuss vaccinations of animals in a book about growing food.

Old enough to know!

I received the hard copy at noon today! Got the audio to go with it, and started listening, following along with the hard copy. This book is well written and the audio is just great. 🤦🏼‍♀️ Went straight through without stoping. One thing I’ve Never been able to do. Never lost interest or got bored! I will listen to it again. I do think it helped me to follow along and be able to see the pictures along with the story. Just love it.

Inspiring

This book helped me get through a tough stage of gardening burn out. A great book for beginners but also very inspiring for advanced homesteaders, it reminded me why we do this in a time I needed it most. I hardly have time to sit and read a hard cover book but Justin's audiobook version made it unique and memorable, only took a couple of days listening to it during chores and housework. I love the way he can tell a story. 10/10 recommend.

informative and heartwarming

This book was a wonderful listen. Not only was it packed with information, but listening to "Uncle Justin's" stories along the way made it personable and relatable. I feel that anyone listening will feel encouraged and have the knowledge to begin their homesteading journey.

Great!

I have both so I benefit with all the amazing photos and audible to hear while driving and sometimes in conjunction with the book. Justin makes its so real. Glad he did his own reading, because he the author and is the one who knows when to fluctuate his voice and you hear his distress or joy no one else would have been able to do the audible book justice.
