The New Pioneer - Fall 2022

The fall season is always an exciting time for new pioneers across the land. The visible transitions taking place in nature serve as a reminder of the importance of evaluating the past while planning for the future. With so much turmoil going on in the world, it’s important to remember a key fundamental we try to emphasize with every issue, practice self-reliance.

This issue is packed with stories for those who understand how smart Mother Nature is, that it saves us money and labor in the long run to let her improve our soil, suppress weeds and prepare a seedbed. Stories from David Boyt help you save money at the pump by running you gas engines on wood, Jim Gilbert teaches you how to let resident frogs, lizards and snakes be your pest-control service, and Richard Hines explains how small-scale logging is excellent for farm use and income.
