What are your homesteading goals?

I want to put in more vegetables, and also eventually set up a couple beehives. I am also interested in preserving foods.

What are you currently doing to be more self sustainable?

I practice yoga, one of its principles being contentment - being happy with what you have and not accumulating more than you need. I recycle, practice a vegetarian diet, and am building a furtile organic landscape around my home.

Any special hobbies like bee keeping, gardening, etc

I garden, and had training in gardening, food preservation, and DYI home improvement from my grandparents, who were farmers from Western Kentucky. I have researched bee-keeping and attended local association meetings and a weekend workshop on the subject. So, I have some basic knowledge of what the potential is, and what is required. But, I am not ready to set up a hive, yet. I have a chronologic to-do list, and a couple other things have to happen before I can welcome them to my home, but it will happen one day.


Hello - I have a pretty nice butterfly and herb garden growing, and love the gardening potential that Tallahassee offers. I also organize the Tally Yoga meetup group.
