This is a group for anyone interested in living more self-sufficiently and sustainably. Let's learn from each other about: growing a successful garden, raising backyard poultry and small livestock, small outdoor building projects, sourcing ingredients and supplies, the art of bartering, making things yourself ... and more. All skill levels welcome.
*** Most meetups will take place in and near Olympia, WA unless we go on a field trip
