What planting/gardening methods are you utilizing currently?

This past spring we had a small garden using typical rows sowing. I used a homemade liquid fertilizer with fair results. Also planted rosemary and marigolds which helped ALOT with pests.

Which self-sufficiency topic interests you the most?

No answer yet

Can you offer related topic knowledge to contribute to group learning efforts?

I am an amateur/intermediate level gardener, know a few organic gardening tips. I also raise a few (4 lol) dairy goats whom Ive learned to milk and care for. I have been raising chickens both free range and cooped for 8 years.

What's your experience level in gardening &/or preparedness?

I have gardened for 3 years and raised livestock, including health and first aid for 7 years. I am not currently prepped, but have a good working knowledge of sustainable living. I'd say we're at an intermediate level.

What motivated you do join the group?

I love the idea of bartering, trading and learning how to live from what we make and grow with our own hands.


Hi, I have a small farm in Worthington Springs which I am planning to make much more productive next spring (we had to slack off a bit this year due to family health issues).
