Here Is What Current Students Are Saying

Before this course I felt like it was just up to chance if living my homestead dream would even happen for me, but now I have the confidence that it is possible and have already started to.”

The course really covered EVERYTHING you need to know and then some! This course sparked my willpower to make this happen quicker, so I decided to search for homes for sale and found one I might purchase that has enough land to grow as much food as I want.

-Shelly Stern

“This course has been LIFE CHANGING for our tribe.”

It has given us hope and inspiration we are on the right track and has helped us facilitate an understanding of where to start the process and how to be successful each step of the way. It teaches you to think outside of the box from start to finish.

-Allison Barrett

“I find it difficult to put into words how much impact the course has had for me so far!”

I have been studying and practicing permaculture and holistic lifestyle skills for over 20 years, but I had been feeling that I was not anywhere close to where I would like to be in terms of progress towards my homestead dreams.

Bret’s course really shined the light on the areas of my life and mindset that have been holding me back from living the life I have desired for so long.
