The Polyface Farm Chicks’ book club are reading Made from Scratch this month and next (June & July). Jenna Woginrich has promised to drop by at some point during the next two months and join the discussions. Here is the first discussion question. Even if you haven’t started reading the book yet, this one is a great start!
THOUGHT #1 – HOMESTEADING
The word “homesteading” often conjures up an image of a bucolic mountain (or valley) home on several acres of arable land, surrounded by a self-sustaining water system, contented farm animals, and a supportive community of fellow farmers. Yet today’s would-be farmer is often a young urban dweller living in a rented home or apartment within a city.
In your opinion is homesteading all or nothing?
What picture comes to your mind when you think of homesteading?
What does your current home place look like now? How could you make it more like a “homestead”?
