Hi Everyone, I'll be back in San Diego for a couple weeks before I have to go home again for a week or two to visit my family(my dad is ill). His Cancer surgery went very well so were happy but recovery might take a while. I am going to look for more meetups and already have some projects planned for this next year. I am going to have a general meetup in Jan to discuss projects and such. Let me know 1. Which weekend works the best for everyone in Jan 2. Which day Sat or Sun works the best 3. Write down projects or ideas that you would like to discuss at the meetup. 4. What time works the best for everyone...I prefer 11am or 12pm so we can meet for a couple hours and then enjoy the rest of our day. This will be a beginning of the year ideas/brain storm meetup to set the pace for the rest of the year. Like I said I have some ideas but would like to see what everyone else would like to do as well. Right now I'm thinking Jan 15/16th would be a good weekend since it's two weeks after the new year but I don't mind any other weekend as well. I will do a poll. Have a great day! Mark
Have an idea? Know of an educational event? Share it with the rest of us! Please contact a Team Leader to organize an event.
There are a lot of recent concerns with the economy and world affairs in general. Growing and producing your own food and household products makes good sense for your budget, health, and the environment. Interest in becoming self sustaining has grown fast.
The intent of this group is toteach/sharetopics related to homesteading that combine the best of the old ways and the advancement of modern methods.
Along the way we may throw in some survivalist classes. We live in earthquake country, with wildfires an obvious threat also. Imagine the power going out for whatever reason. Any one of us well prepared homesteaders would be comfortably enjoying a hot meal cooked in our solar ovens from home canned produce and backyard chickens while the local grocery stores are under mob attack. In another practical scenario, most households now have less income that it needs to cover groceries that cost more than they used to. Some solutions are to starve or eat substandard foods with poor nutrition. A much better solution is to grow your own food to save money and improve the health of your loved ones.
If you have an idea or a skill you want to share, please jump in and let us know. If you wish to create an event for the first time, you must contact the main organizer to arrange an interview with our education and outreach staff. During this interview, we can learn more about your planned events, skill levels, and how they will benefit our members. Once you become a "Core Education Partner", you will have direct posting access. We retain the right to edit, or delete posts without notice.
