The Acorn Off-Grid Book is out!
Sharing these 50 key off-grid ideas was a big goal for us in 2023
2023 has been a busy year for our team here at Acorn Land Labs!
We’re excited to share that we’ve published our first book to promote these ideas!
Our driving mission all year has been to build, test and then share off-grid technology and ecological methods that can help people to live more affordably & locally.
Our new book is: “The Acorn Off-Grid Home: A Tiny Guide for Off-Grid Living - 50 Key Steps and Systems”
We have this “Acorn Off-Grid Home” book in multiple formats based on what works best for you:
PDF ebook on our website: $14.00 (for 50% off [$7] use ACORN50 code)
Audiobook on SoundWise: $18 (for 50% off [$9] use ACORN50 code)
The “Acorn Off-Grid Home” book provides a high level tour of why off-grid systems can give people more freedom in our modern age. We need affordable, sustainable, decentralized ways to provide for shelter, energy, sanitation, water and food. Many people crave the freedom and connection to nature this way of life provides.
Beyond the why behind off-grid living, we delve into the 50 key off-grid systems that enable life to be lived well in a sustainable, affordable manner. These are the building blocks for sustainable freedom.
We fuse together concepts from:
and the tiny home movement.
We explore how tiny homes, solar power, rainwater systems, biogas, micro cabins, permaculture, composting, biomass heating and many other off-grid building blocks integrate together to provide a life of affordable and sustainable freedom.
Next year, in 2024, our team will be taking a step back from publishing the weekly video content. It’s been a wonderful year here in 2023, but we need to catch our breath and focus on family. We’ll be enjoying using the off-grid tools and methods we’ve been promoting all year for the online community. We hope all this has been an inspiration and help to you and others!
I’ll continue work to write here weekly.
We’ll still work to publish a video every few weeks or so. Perhaps monthly!
But it’s time for us to take a breather.
Not forever, just for a season. Acorn Land Labs isn’t going anywhere. We’re a small team highly dedicated to this work. We do need a bit of a rest though :)
A short recap of 2023…
We designed a 1/4 acre off-grid land lab for growing local food organically. We grew over 2500 lbs of local produce along with free range eggs!
We built an off-grid simulator for helping anyone plan off-grid design projects digitally (raising over $65k to build the app on Kickstarter).
We recorded and published a 10 hour video course for sharing these off-grid ideas.
We formed an online community for connecting off-grid enthusiasts together.
We kicked off the concept for an off-grid video game called “HomeFree”.
We also kicked off our “Off-Grid in 30 Days Video Series” on youtube documenting our micro-cabin build to provide local shelter, energy, sanitation, water and food.
We want to sincerely thank you all for the support and encouragement.
This project is a labor of love to help share ideas to spread freedom.
We care about humans building freedom while caring for other people & the planet.
We care about local people charting their own independent course.
We care about lifelong learning for everyone.
We care about restoring the health of our soils and waters.
We care about freeing people from financial bondage to banks.
We care about moving away from mindless consumerism.
We care about redesigning our homes & communities to be enjoyable.
We are thankful to have had this year to share these ideas with you!
We try to keep our materials as affordable as possible. This effort takes considerable time and funds to produce, and every book sale helps to keep it running strong.
