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.
