Discussion for Made from Scratch - part 1
THOUGHT #1 - HOMESTEADING
The word "homesteading" often conjures up an image of a bucolic mountain (or valley) home on several acres of arable land, surrounded by a self-sustaining water system, contented farm animals, and a supportive community of fellow farmers. Yet today's would-be farmer is often a young urban dweller living in a rented home or apartment within a city.
What picture comes to your mind when you think of homesteading?
What does your current home place look like now? How could you make it more like a "homestead"?
