Volume 18 of MAKE Magazine features projects on how to make food and energy, using the untapped resources around the house, yard, and community. This DIY Energy issue shows readers how to measure their energy use and maximize their efficiency, with projects such as making a topographical map of their property, starting an energy garden, making an embedded irrigation system, using chickens to reduce household inputs, and more.MAKE continues to be a leader in the tech DIY movement due to its uncanny instinct to engage the curiosity, vitality, and passion of the growing community of Makers -- DIY enthusiasts, hobbyist engineers/designers, and others who like to tweak, disassemble, recreate, and invent cool new uses for technology in amazing projects they undertake in their backyards, basements, and garages.
