What are some of your favorite topics in this area?

Growing my own herbs and supporting local growers as much as possible. Learning about plants for food and medicinal purposes. Wild food collection. Planting drought hardy and native plants as much as possible. Using plants and trees to keep home cool and warm. Off the grid possibilities.

Do you currently grow things or are you planning to grow something in the near future?

I grow as much as I can but the grass hoppers this year are wiping me out. Will always keep trying. Can't help myself.

To what extent does self-sufficiency relate to your interest in this subject? (e.g., Very much, Moderately, Not At All)

Very, Very, Very MUCH!!!!


Hi, I am not much on the computer. More in the 'dirt' kind a girl. Love the idea of less is more. Wabi Sabi ... Use rain water as much as possible. Sustainability and self reliance is very important in this world of using up all our resources.

What shari w. is saying about this Meetup Group

Am I missing how to do this. I saw lots of folks there but had no idea who was w/ Meetup group. But it was a great opportunity to learn about trees in N. Tx.
