Introduction

HI, I have a small organic family farm just outside of Fallbrook in Rainbow. There's lots of things you have listed on your site that I'd like to learn more about: alternative energy, aquaponics and more.

Why do you have an interest in the San Diego Homesteaders Meetup Group?

I have a small organic family farm just outside of Fallbrook in Rainbow. There's lots of things you have listed on your site that I'd like to learn more about: alternative energy, aquaponics and more.

Would you consider proposing meetup ideas?

I'd love to learn more about outdoor ovens, building outbuildings with straw, tilapia production in ponds, septic systems, and more.

What experience do you have with Homesteading or Gardening?

I have been farming organically for 12 years or so, and raise dairy goats and heirloom chickens. I started with a focus on rare fruits and then later expanded into row crops. So I do have experience growing subtropicals like macadamias, guavas, carissa plum, citrus, passion fruit, etc. We asexually propagate some items here; meaning we use cuttings to create new plants which is a great resource to know how to do. And we've built a greenhouse which is critical to getting transplants started in January-February to get a jump on the season.

    Hi Donna,
    Last month I couldn't attend and instead of getting a refund I requested to be moved to the next meeting. I don't see my name which is fine I can go in February 16th if this month is full. Let me know. Thanks, Brad Fox

    Hi, I'm a chef that loves all kinds of cheese and would love to learn to make it myself.

    Morning Song Farm Cheese Making

    Hello, I joined Meet-Ups about one year ago, but haven't really participated in any events yet. I am now living in Carlsbad after returning from a busy musical life in Europe. I lived in France for 30 years and know quite a bit about French cheeses. Your group sounds like fun. It will be interesting for me to have personal experience making cheese..
