*Homesteading [hom-stediNG]

Homesteading is a lifestyle of that promotes greater self-sufficiency, characterized by a focus on producing food, energy, and well-being close to home, but not necessarily alone.


For us, homesteading is about both the  ability to be self-reliant and the ability to connect with others with shared interests.   Homesteading is a process, a way of life, and a goal.  And homesteading looks different for everyone.  This is our version of part-time homesteading, and we hope to share tips and resources that will help others to find a version of homesteading that works for them.
