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

I take too much for granted in our present consumer culture. Our access to resources makes us dependent on an unsustainable system of transportation and communication. I would like to become more self-reliant, and know how to access or make the items that I need most. I also want to develop a more informed appreciation of where my food comes from, and what it really takes to produce it.

Would you consider proposing meetup ideas?


What experience do you have with Homesteading or Gardening?

I am a proficient vegetable gardener, though not at my current residence. I grew up in pennsylvania out in the country, so I have a pretty decent handle on basic animal husbandry, plant cultivation, and back-country ingenuity. But if I had to do it tomorrow to survive, I might be lost...


We work, eat, consume without ever really knowing where our food and goods come from. I want to change that for myself, to better maintain access to the supplies I need, and to be able to appreciate the energy that goes into every morsel of my food.
