I am so excited to announce that I am participating in the month-long self reliance challenge in May! Several homestead bloggers, including myself, will be writing posts on how we are moving toward self sufficiency. If you would like to join and follow along, please visit http://www.theselfsufficienthomeacre.com/self-reliance-challenge for the list of participating sites!
Here is the list as well, so you an easily get to these awesome posts:
AnnMarie – 15 Acre Homestead
Nancy – Nancy On The Homefront
Kathi – Oak Hill Homestead
Robin – A Life in the Wild
Candy – Candy’s Farm House Pantry
Farmgal – Just another Day on the Farm
Ashley – Practical Self Reliance
Frank – My Green Terra
Maria – Maria Zannini
Lisa Lynn – The Self Sufficient HomeAcre
And yours truly, ShawnaLee – Homegrown Self Reliance
The weekly posts will be published at least every Tuesday, maybe more often. You will learn all things self reliance, including:
- growing your own food
- cooking healthy meals from scratch
- hunting and fishing
- preserving your harvests
- foraging for wild edibles and medicinals
- raising animals for dairy, eggs, and meat
- preparing for emergencies
With the world in such uncertainty, it is everyone’s responsibility to be as self reliant as they can. Don’t think of this as “prepping”, think of this as being prepared for whatever might come your way. You may experience job loss, an especially tight budget month, a natural disaster, an economic downturn, or food scarcity. Any one of these scenarios would leave your family hungry if you are not prepared. When you are self reliant, you can not only survive, but thrive!
