So many aspects. Self-reliance, controlling my food sources, gardening, keeping chickens, apiculture, canning and preserving food, measuring not food miles but food feet, fixing instead of replacing, sewing and mending. Et cetera.
Greetings! I am a native, back to Raleigh after living elsewhere for the last five years. My long-term plan is to set up a homestead in the NC mountains, and I'm here plotting my move! Would love to meet like-minded folks doing what I want to do.
