What are your homesteading goals?

I would like to keep bees, grow some vegetables and practice more home food preservation techniques. I would also like to get into vermicompost ing this year. Our long range goal is to design and build our own energy efficient homestead on a larger piece of acreage.

What are you currently doing to be more self sustainable?

I keep a few chickens for eggs, recycle, and participate in a local produce CSA. I try to buy local whenever possible.

Any special hobbies like bee keeping, gardening, etc

Raising poultry and cooking--I LOVE to cook and have made a first attempt at several canning projects last year. I also like making things and repurposing stuff. I also used to practice primitive archery but unfortunately haven't had time in a few years.

Introduction

Hi. I'm a social worker and I live near Wakulla Springs with my husband. We have few chickens and are exploring organic gardening. We are both very interested in self sufficiency, homesteading. and alternative energy.
