Homesteading is a term that means to be self-sufficient, self-reliant, and self-sustaining. It is a way of life for some, and well, just a little of the skills used by others, but the bottom line is, everyone is homesteading whether they know it or not. It includes canning and preserving foods, making your own clothing, repair work, growing a garden, raising bees, raising chickens and other farm animals. It includes cooking, crafts, collecting rain water, woodworking, composting… Wait, did I use cooking and composting in one sentence? Oh well, with homesteading, nothing is impossible. It includes survival skills, which includes fire building, trapping, hunting, fishing; are you starting to get the picture? It’s hard to live life without doing some kind of homesteading. Almost every DIY person or project uses these skills. From building houses to putting up fences, and even foraging for wild plants whether edible or medicinal. Homesteading isn’t just a way of life, it is how we all survive on the planet!
