Five Acres And Sustainability

Over the next few weeks, done on a peridic basis, I will explore the idea of small acreage and how to be sustainable.  Not that I am an expert on anything, but we are working toward this end, ourselves.  We are doing this for several reasons, but the top two are the fact that the government and current political climate leaves nothing to chance and the stewardship of God's land.

With this in mind, I have to believe that there are folks out there that are where we aere 12 years ago.  They might be concerned about the state of things, or just want to live a healthier life eating real, whole foods.  Again, I am no expert, but, over the next several weeks/months, I will share some ideas, pictures, anecdotes and general things we have done.  This effort will, I hope, inspire others to a life more sustainable on small acreage.

With that in mind, I want to refer you to an old article I wrote on sustainability to give you a good understanding of what I am refering to.  One thing is for sure, you can grow crops and much of your own food on a small amount of land.  I would argue that you can do a bunch, even in the city (of course, I would get out of the city, if you can).

I look forward to sharing ideas with you and hearing from you.  Come back often and enjoy your visit.

I can't wait to read your upcoming posts! That is exactly what we are aiming to do. As soon as we can find the right land to buy, we will be on our own journey to sustainability!
