We are extremely excited to announce the launch of our new book (80 pgs), soma earth SELF-SUFFICIENT LIVING! This is an introductory guide to what the essential components are to becoming more self-sufficient such as;  natural building materials & systems that are more energy efficient and healthy such as a straw bale house,  selecting alternative energy systems, becoming aware of the essential need to start your own garden and plan for long-term storage preservation needs,  owning small livestock such as your own backyard chickens and accessory buildings for homesteading……PLUS SO MUCH MORE! For more information about Ingrid click here

“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…….”

This is part of the building SOUL mission that our blog is about as well.

The book is intended as a loose guide, kind of like a cook book, with 21 different possibilities that you can put together on your own of what might attract you to do for yourself. The intention is to empower people with more awareness of how their inner world is influenced and affected by their outer world environments.

This is part of the building SOUL mission that our blog is about as well.
