Our journey to create an intentionally simple and self-sufficient Homestead in Missouri.
Our new website
For herbs I don't grow, this is my favorite place!
On our site, you will see selected links to books that have been valuable to our homesteading, permaculture, spiritual, health and natural building paths and links to products we use or feel are ethical. Purchasing any of these products through my site will help contribute to our homesteading success and our teaching others to do the same.

friend online garden buddy and dear friend
took our notes from the last few years of growing in the Ozarks and
used the official USDA data to create a beautiful garden calendar. The
artwork is all hers as well! It also has lots of areas for notes.
The calendar is available for zones 6-9.
She is a hard working organic gardener who has put a lot of love and
time into this. I don't
think the website is completely finished, but
it's close enough to order.
My husband and I are organic gardeners using permaculture practices and
living off-grid in the Missouri Ozarks. We are building a small earth sheltered home without a mortgage. Our
goal, like many “homesteaders” is being as self sufficient as possible.
We are amateurs, leaving our traditional professions of a software
tester and musician, so we are having to learn as we go.
Besides green building, my interests are in health, herbalism, food
forests and learning how to live the way people were meant to live.
