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

I am VERY interested in producing as much food on my property as possible. In fact we are thinking of filling in the pool so we can have more grow room.

Would you consider proposing meetup ideas?


What experience do you have with Homesteading or Gardening?

I grew up on my parents 3 acre urban farm. My dad had a little tractor and my mom had a couple of geese, a turkey and a bunch of chickens. My dad is an OUTSTANDING gardener, growing everything my parents need in the way of fruits and vegis with my mom canning a lot of it. From them I have learned about composting and canning. I also have a worm composter and can share worms and help others set up their own system. The earth and weather conditions are very different in this area and I would like to hang around gardners who can show me things. We did an energy audit of our home and did everything recommended so that our house is energy efficient . I am very interested in creating a sustainable environment!!! I have been an active participant in 2 different food swaps and would like to help organize one in this area.


Transplanted New Yorker looking for fun and interesting new friends and activities.

What Belinda R. is saying about this Meetup Group

This class was so inspirational that I signed up to do the Master Composter class in Carlsbad and will volunteer to present at schools since I have a Masters in Special Ed, taught for years and haven't done so since I became a lawyer 16 years ago. It will be fun to be with kids again.
