I have been researching going off the grid and creating a sustainable living environment for a few years now. I'm ready. Let's Go Build An Earthship.
The goal of the group is to collectively figure out how to make the term "Suburban Sustainability" into something that's not an oxymoron.
We will be organizing the topics around the concept of "suburban homesteading."
Topics may include how to make your own homemade goods, like toothpaste and deodorant or how to compost, how to garden, how to raise chickens, etc.
The goal is to bring these skills into suburbia and urbia.
This group is for Do It Yourselfers who don't remember how to do much of anything .... but want to re-learn.
The skills required for "homesteading" have been lost in just a few short generations. Your great-grandmother likely knew how to can, sew, garden, raise chickens and a slew of other useful skills.
You and I know how to sit at computers, make money, spend money, drive cars, and in general, have Mastered the Art of Knowing How to Do Nothing Practical.
Let's get together to change that.
Each of us wanna-be's knows at least one practical skill. Let's get together to teach that skill to the group so that gradually, we all re-learn what we all collectively have forgotten.
