“Learning how to become self-sufficient on how you live on the earth is slowly becoming a new grassroots movement throughout the world.  Homesteading is a term that is applied to anyone who follows a self-sufficient lifestyle that includes small-scale, sustainable agriculture and homemaking.

Our world is becoming more cluttered, more polluted and if you pay attention to the reality that we are all living right now, you should be beginning to have an increasing concern over the authenticity and quality of your food.  With the increasing intensity of the erratic weather patterns as well as the European economic instability, it behooves us to become more self-reliant and ensure that our food, shelter and living needs are more locally sourced, energy efficient and more immediately available…….”
