The purpose of the group is to spread knowledge of homesteading and backyard/urban gardening.
The goal is to have meetings about twice a month.
Here is list of things we would want to try to do, but not all at once:
Making Lye from ashes (Potash)
Other fermented drinks
Animals (chickens, rabbits)
Welcome Homesteaders and Backyard Gardeners!
