Have you thought about starting a garden? Canning the harvest? Maybe you want to keep a few chickens, a dairy goat, or a pig. You might be interested in cooking from scratch, making soap, or just generally doing more for yourself. You are a homesteader.
Wikipedia defines Homesteading; "Broadly defined, homesteading is a lifestyle of self-sufficiency."
You might live in the city, suburbs, or out in the country, but regardless there are things you can do to become more self sufficient. Tim and Stephanie Appleton of Mil-Ton Farms share their experiences, and provide information and resources to help you get started. Specific questions are welcome beforehand to help guide the discussion!
Class is $15 and $12 for Friends of the Market. Payable the day of the class.
I am excited about this class. I'm happy to share what we have learned, but homesteading is such a broad subject! Recently, I was talking to another homeschool mom who wants to become a little more self sufficient. She said she didn't even know what questions to start with because there was so much she didn't know.
So, where do I start? Love to have your feedback on what you'd want to know, or what you wished you had know before you started your homestead!
