About the Author

KRIS BORDESSA'S passion project is the hit blog Attainable Sustainable, which she launched in 2011 to create a community focused on self-reliant living. The site asks the question: What if we could tackle one little actionable step each day to achieve a more self-reliant lifestyle? Bordessa grew up on a small farm in Northern California where her family harvested apples, raised chickens, planted acres of tomatoes, butchered pigs and hosted a Christmas tree farm. These days, she lives in Hawai'i with her husband, two sons, an abundant vegetable garden, and a thriving chicken flock.
