Learn how to live a self-sufficient life. You'll find the information you need to get started on these pages.

You might wonder how you can homestead in a suburb in a little back yard plot, but you will be surprised once you start by how much food you can produce in a small space. Even a small garden or container gardening can produce a large supply of food.

I know raising meat can be difficult, but if you live in an area where the zoning permits, chickens and rabbits produce a lot of food in a small space. Don't forget chicken eggs! My neighbor grows their own bluegills for fish.

Besides home grown food being fresh and chemical-free, you are helping the environment by doing away with wasteful aluminum cans and styrofoam. Growing your own saves money too.

Make your own laundry detergents and cleaners, can and freeze your own homegrown foods that are much healthier for your.  Use the recipes on this site and see how enjoyable it can be to do it yourself.
Not only is food made from scratch healthier without additives, but saves packaging waste and the ink that is used to package them. By making your own laundry soaps you are saving plastic jugs that decompose slowly in landfills.
You can even make your own insect repellents, fabric softeners, even toilet bowl cleaner without the dangerous chemicals. Try these recipes and fill your wallet.

Recycle anything you can. Buy at garage sales and used shops. Save our planet.
