What is Homesteading?
I define homesteading as “working to be more self-reliant, wherever you are”. “Common Sense Homesteading” is all about “using sound judgment to be more self-reliant”.
We’ve built a library of “Getting Started Homesteading” posts to help you become more self-reliant. We’ll talk about food production and storage, natural health, recipes, preparedness and other skills that may be handy.
