Hometown: Jacksonville, Florida
August 30, 2011
My homesteading goals are to build a monolithic dome on a self sustaining homestead and learn as much as I can to facilitate this lifestyle. I would like to raise poultry, cows, goats, sheep, alpacas, bees, ostriches, pigs, and rabbits. I also plan to have a garden and orchard. I'd like to process my own animals and produce.
I am currently reducing my use of electricity, fuel, and water. I'm also canning some of our foods. I make preserves, pickles, ketchup, hot sauce and etc. I also make my own bread. I'm learning how make soap now. I've been doing a lot of reading to learn how to raise and care for the animals I want to raise on my homestead.
I'm a novice in canning, quilting, and soapmaking.
My name is Lisa. My husband and I just purchased a parcel of land. We are interested homesteading. I'd like to build a self sufficient homestead.
