Living on my homestead in a small rural village has been a lifelong dream and commitment for me.

By becoming more self-reliant, I have realised the importance of community and sharing and the importance of continually learning.

Follow my blog below for food growing tips and tricks, recipes and tutorials as well as news and updates of what is happening on my homestead and in my community.
