  • Description


    Our journey building a self-reliant homestead started four years ago, when we moved to this 4500 m sq piece of land, with the goal of growing all our food without outside dependency. Since then we have received a lot of questions about what it takes to live in a self-reliant way, which got us thinking about the challenges that people face in this journey. We are concerned that peoples’ options are becoming increasingly dependent on institutions such as governments, banks, food stores and other corporations that may not act in the best interests of people, and of the natural environment. So we decided to develop educational programs, publications and outreach, to help others learn to live in a low impact, sustainable way, and share information about overcoming challenges. We believe that access to healthy food and housing, and the knowledge of how to grow and build it should not be based on money transactions. It is our mission to continue researching and sharing the best methods, systems, and skills to empower people to build their own communities, on their own terms, in control of their own sustainable resources. In the near future we plan to have more people join us here living and caring for the land full time.
