Nowadays, a€œgo local, a€ a€œorganic food, a€ and a€œsustainabilitya€ are on the tip of everyone's tongue. Harriet Fasenfest's A Householder's Guide to the Universe takes up the banner of progressive homemaking and urban farming as a way to confront the political, social, and environmental issues facing the world. While offering plenty of useful advice on how to do common household chores sustainably, Fasenfest goes deeper to discuss the philosophy of qhouseholding.q The book is organized in monthly installments according to season, and the author invites readers into her own home, garden, and kitchen to consider concrete tools for change. Streetwise and poetic, fierce and romantic, the book is more than just a blueprint for escaping the current economic and environmental logjam a€” ita€™s also a readable and pithy analysis of how we got there.I first encountered the term a€œhouseholdinga€ in a book of essays by Wendell Berry entitled A Continuous Harmony: Essays ... during my time on Main Street, in the symposiums, in my garden, under the pear tree, in my classes, and in my home.
