What planting/gardening methods are you utilizing currently?

just moved here need to get a garden going for the spring. We are planning on adding a herb spiral and orchard as well as berry bushes. Having just moved here I have to figure out what grows here well and what does not ;)

Which self-sufficiency topic interests you the most?

No answer yet

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

In the past we have had raised beds and pots (we build earth buckets and used them with great success). Looking to do the same here though I will have to research what will work here

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


What motivated you do join the group?

Not quite sure how to answer that since I am still trying to figure out if the distance to gainesville is going to work in the long run and iif their might be even different climates from clay county to yours. I enjoy canning what I produce, gardening and homesteading as a whole. We are very much interested in becoming more and more sustainable ourselves by learning skills like raising chickens for consumption and eggs and the whole butchering process that comes with it. Just learned to butcher our first chicken and a couple of turkeys an looking forward to raising our first chickens for eggs. We have so much to learn and hope to learn from all of you.


Hi, we just moved to Florida (Middleburg). Looking forward to meet many of you eventually. I enjoy gardening (looking to add an orchard to our little homestead here),canning, homesteading and all that comes with it.

What petra is saying about this Meetup Group

Was there anyone there from the group or was this an open forum? I am rather unsure
