Need help preparing for winter! Update on the homestead, I am now alone on the homestead and working full time, so i need help this October big time. I currently have a workaway guest here for a couple more weeks.
Firewood, food prep, chicken care, building projects, land work, herb drying and harvest, foraging....itsa lot of work to get ready for winter here. My interests lie in herbalism, permaculture, flower and food growing, chicken/duck raising, small structure building, natural fencing, swale and pond construction are some of our projects. The main house will one day be able to accomadate more than just two but for now we are planning on finishing a guest cabin (the Shack) where people can stay. Im english but speak french too. Our diet is mainly paleo/ancestral/keto. We usually also spend a lot of time swimmimg in the lake and trying to not work too hard!
DIY and building projects
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
We live on 18 acres of wild old growth Laurentian forest about an hour from Montreal. We are both herbalists and love to teach about plants. We are also developing sylvopasture systems to one day have larger animals,like pigs and sheep. We work with permaculture garden methods and after about ten years here it provides a good example of what it takes to start a hometead in the forest. We built our house and cleared the land.
fall herb harvest, firewood, chicken care, generally getting ready for winter!
