The Start of a New Decade

Print pagePDF pageEmail page

Just a quick post on the start of a new decade.

I have been a homesteader most of my life and learned most of my skills as a homesteader from my grandparents. Since they were young adults during the great depression they were forced into frugality (my grandpa saved everything) just as we are being pushed in that direction as well, only in a different era or context if you will. We must change and
shift our thinking a little (or a bunch depending on who you talk to) on the path to self-sufficiency, environmental stewardship, and energy independence.

I do know that most of the folks that are reading this post are already on one or more of those particular roads and let me say, “KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK” and “THANK YOU”.

Even if you are a new gardener, re-cycler, or alternative energy fan, every small step you take truly does make a difference.
Lets, collectively, make 2010 and beyond the greenest year(s) ever! As we can all see it is definitely going in that direction, and “we the people” have to keep it going in that direction. Don’t forget to leave a comment and your link about what your doing to go, or stay “GREEN” Thanks !

My best wishes to you and yours and HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Peace and Prosperity to You,,Happy Homesteading,,,

    I think that many people feel that since they live in town (or in the suburbs)that they can't "homestead". I know that as a boy, growing up in a suburb of Sacramento CA, we grew a ton of our own food. We had fresh eggs from our girls, a huge garden, fruit trees, berry bushes, and sometimes rabbits for meat all of which was grown without chemicals in the California sun. We were homesteading right there in town! You can homestead right now while you are dreaming of a bigger place, just do what you can where you are. And remember, a lawn is really just wasted garden space. Dan
