Do you long for ways to live a more wholesome existence? Are you attracted to the idea of a more sustainable lifestyle while connecting with people who care about the same?

Now is a great time to start creating the homestead you dream of.  Now is a great time to connect with a community of people who are interested in sharing their successes, sharing their skill, and sharing their joy of the same.

The place to start your homestead is where you live right now! You can start right now, be it a 100 acre farm or a studio apartment in the city.  It matters not how much you do but what your intentions are, and if you're here... you are most likely a kindred spirit.

 

Homesteading at Home is where we will connect with like-minded people who share an interest in sustainable, self-sufficient living.

Our focus will be on all things connected with starting, maintaining, and growing our homestead including:

  • Growing and preserving our own food
  • Making home-brew beer and wine
  • Clean energy alternatives
  • Animal husbandry including backyard chickens
  • Beekeeping
  • Healthy eating
  • Off the grid living
  • Permaculture
  • Fermented foods
  • Green building
  • Organic gardening
  • Appreciation of nature through art and music
  • Traditional American skills
  • Emergency preparedness
  • Repair, Reuse, and Recycling
  • Composting
  • Foraging
  • Teaching our friends, family, and children about sustainability
  • Reduction of waste
  • Soapmaking
  • Blacksmithing
  • Seed Saving
  • Fuel efficiency
  • Aquaculture
  • Traditional crafts
  • Woodworking
  • and much, much more...

 

We will change, grow, and adapt, as our individual homesteads will as well.  However, we will be connected through community and share our successes, share our skills, and share our harvests too!!

We should expect to meet regularly in a friendly setting to discuss topics, share resources, and perhaps learn a thing or two from one another. We will also share meetups at related events throughout the area on topics of interest.

Please feel free to introduce youself when you join and tell us just a little about why you're here.
