 Getting Baked: Everything You Need to Know about Hemp, CBD, and Medicinal GardeningGetting Laid: Everything You Need to Know About Raising Chickens, Gardening and Preserving — with Over 100 Recipes!Barb's website ruralmom.comMy website is ruralmom.com. It's RURALmom.com. And on there you'll find me talking about a number of different things. I work in many arenas, but for the most part it's it's about gardening things we can do to be more sustainable, you know, gift ideas. A lot of things, my goal with that website was to enhance people's lives in terms of finding quality things and quality activities that could help people who are living out in the country and suburban areas.Feel free to contact Barb on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, wherever you hang out. My email address is on there. Feel free to email me. Read the computer generated transcript here. Find below some of the resources Barb recommends:BARB: But I happen to love that. I do love going down the rabbit hole of research. I love exploring and finding out as much as I can about a particular topic. That just happens to be a really hardcore website if you're looking for scientific information. So it is one of my favorites to head towards when I'm looking for something.JackieMarie: So there's the US National Library of Medicine, the national Institute of health, which is www.mlmdnih.gov? And then, then there's also the NCBI.NLM.NIH.gov So it must be like part of their website, the national center for biotechnology information is part of the  National Library of Medicine, national Institute. BARB: Yes, I believe so. I guess, but the US National Library of Medicine.JackieMarie: Do you have a book to recommend?BARB: One of the books that I think early on, I used what's the, I'm trying to look up the exact name. It's a huge book. And it's like the homestead encyclopedia or something, or is it the The Encyclopedia of Country Living I might be it, is it the encyclopedia of country living? I think everybody should own this book, especially if you're just starting out. JackieMarie: It's cool. I don't have that one. And I don't know that one.BARB: Then its 50th year. I believe it is an amazing resource. It was for me early on. I would say I don't go to it now very much, but in the beginning, like if you think my book is chock-full of stuff, that is something that should be on everybody's shelf, especially if you're just starting out or maybe even if you're mad, if you're an expert already, I don't know if they'll gain as much from it, but it's called The Encyclopedia of Country Living and I believe it's yeah, I've just pulled up the 50th anniversary edition, the original manuals for living off the land and doing it yourself by Carla Emery.The Encyclopedia of Country Living, 50th Anniversary Edition: The Original Manual for Living off the Land & Doing It YourselfAnd it is gold. If you are looking to do anything from raising chickens, pigs, beekeeping, baking, gardening, preserving, like everything is in there, everything that was done in not only. So it's not only like what was done is it's really realistically, like if you lived in the pioneer days, absolutely everything you would need to know to live off the land is in the spot. So there's things you wouldn't even think of or necessarily do, but we can do. So it's really cool. Like you make your own cheese and spinning wool and all kinds of crazy stuff. That's really cool. And, and we're moving back to now, you know, how do you, if you want to be completely 100% sustainable, this buck, I'll tell you how to do it and get you a little acre of land and go start a town. But if you just even, you know, just as a reference for gardening, there's so much in there that I learned from initially.Ways to Support The ShowWanna donate to the show!
