5 Mistakes People Make When They Move to the Country
When we made the choice to move back to the country in 2008, to try our hand at modern homesteading,
I really thought I was pretty prepared.
Boy, was I wrong!
Over the past 4 years, I’ve learned a LOT. Through experience, yes, but mostly because I’ve spent time with people who know a whole lot more than I probably ever will! One of those people I was blessed to share time with was Robin Wheeler, author of Food Security for the Faint of Heart and Gardening for the Faint of Heart (both excellent little guides for newbies who are scared that growing and securing our own food is way too much work – available on my Recommended page). Unfortunately, we lost Robin in early 2012, but in honor of her legacy of sharing information and expertise generously, we’ve left this audio up and available for anyone who would like to listen.
Over 5 years I had the distinct pleasure of gleaning from Robin’s vast knowledge of all things self-sufficiency, permaculture, simple living, food production, and more.
We recorded many of our conversations and I know Robin wanted us to share them with you!
Robin had more than 15 years’ experience living on the land, growing food plants and teaching others what she knew.
She knew what works and what doesn’t.
In this free audio ‘workshop’ (in MP3 format), she shares the 5 things that newbie homesteaders and really
anyone thinking of moving to the country (or who have recently moved to start their dream!)
need to know to help ensure success.
Or at least so you don’t feel like fleeing back to the city!
