My name is Barb and my husband and I have recently gone to a more organic diet and lifestyle. I'm interested in learning how to garden and live more naturally and independent of preservatives and chemicals.
This group is for individuals interested in resources, tools, and information for producing and marketing products grown through the use of alternative gardening methods such as aquaponics, hydroponics, organics, chickens, backyard food production, permaculture, sustainable farming, etc. Another component to the group is self sufficiency and homesteading principals, techniques, and practices allowing individuals to lead a more independent lifestyle.
We like to meet and discuss things such as aquaponics, back yard chickens, food dehydrating, food preserving techniques, farmer's markets, regulations relating to gardening and farming, medicinal herbs, pressure canning, milking goats, soap making, composing, permaculture, worms, soils, local resources to help, and all sorts of other topics to help you produce and store your own foods, locate and consume better foods, and unplug from the current systems.
