Publisher’s description: Since 1990, BackHome has been the premier hands-on guide to sustainable living. The bi-monthly publication covers renewable and solar energy, green and natural building, organic and chemical-free gardening, small-scale livestock, home business, healthy cooking, crafts, workshop projects, and family activities.

USA Today says: “BackHome…offers sensible tips on independent living. The emphasis is on the word ‘Home’ ranging from homegrown food to home-schooling to home building.”

BackHome stresses how-to and hands-on, and has an extremely popular reader following. It is editorially driven and not directed by advertising; classified and display ads comprise less than 25 percent of its content. BackHome is also the prime sponsor of the annual Southern Energy & Environment Expo, the largest sustainable living event of its kind in the South.
