Excitement for purchasing our homestead almost left us on the wrong piece of land. With some money in the bank, we were READY to have land and start our own homestead. We fell in love with a cozy little yurt property on 5 acres with a seasonal stream.
Long story short, the owner jerked us around and ultimately we did not end up there. Otherwise, we would have happily of bought his land, and very soon after, would have figured out that we did not have enough land for our homestead desires.
For many folks, their ultimate dream might be owning land for a permaculture homestead, but it’s not always possible right away.
This was exactly our case. We knew the lifestyle appealed to us, so we wanted to find a way to start homesteading before even buying land.
Have you ever stolen a peek onto someone’s book shelf?
To me, a quick scan of their library feels like a tiny glimpse into their heart and soul, a way to know a bit of who they are without saying a word.
Permaculture. The “P” word.
It carries so much intrigue. Weight. Curiosity.
While I am young enough to have not been around when the word “organic” started floating about in the 70’s, I imagine it to be the same kinda of thing as the buzz around permaculture.
