Homesteading are the actions of self- sufficiency. 

It is characterized by small plot agriculture, animal husbandry for food and sale, home preservation of food, and often is driven by lifestyle and political belief systems.  One can practice self-sufficiency on a micro scale, such as the use of a hydroponic garden in an apartment or on a larger scale.  How much you chose to immerse yourself in this immensely satisfying and rewarding work is up to you.

Modern homesteading gained popularity in the 1960s and 1970s in the United States. Self-sufficiency movements in the 1990s and 2000s began to apply the concept to urban and suburban settings, increasingly known as urban homesteading. 

The New Homesteader

As our nation has become a flawed democracy, as we search for meaning in the very act of being, as our imported foods have grown to have a larger share of the market and a corrupt agro-business is the new normal, people have many reasons to seek a healthier source of food and a healthier life.

There are many sources to find information on all aspects of homesteading, from building a house, cooking, growing food, politics, securing energy sources and homeschooling. 

Here, on this site – we shall explore them together. 

In the end, homesteading is about having a purpose, making a difference at the local level.  In your own life and the life of your family and community.  Making it fun, making it relevant.

"Be your own politics, grow your own garden, and maybe you can help out more."
