Sunset magazine's editors have undertaken a "One Block Diet" project, growing their own vegetables, making their own wine, and nurturing their own honeybees. They're sharing their knowledge, too, in a series of tutorials you can download...
The entire staff seems to be in on the movement, and they are divided into "Team Garden," "Team Chicken," etc. You can read the blog that follows every aspect of the project, from raising chickens to exploring salt evaporation ponds (by "Team Salt," naturally).
There are seasonal recipes making use of the produce they're growing as well as pdf files you can download. We skimmed "How to make beer" and "How to make olive oil" but realized our limited space (or busy schedule) might be a problem.
But if you are an avid do-it-yourself-er, this is a fun read and a great resource.
