Our Homestead Explained (In less that 400 Words!) l Hill Country Homestead Texas

From wild foraging, planting crops or shopping for sustainable products, the way food is sourced is a lifestyle choice. A choice every family and individual has to make on a daily basis. We make our choices together, pictured below is a lovely scene of a family meeting in the garden. Our children love to hear us lecture them on the nutritional content of local seasonal produce and they find it incredibly interesting when we fill them in on the latest chemical free food movement updates going on in our global economy. Just kidding, they aren’t huge fans of it but it does give us an opportunity to have educational conversations with them as we work and harvest the land that provides for us. I was interviewed by the Texas Wildflower a while back about our ‘out of the ordinary’ lifestyle and shared with Pamela a little bit about what we do and why, and the food values we strive to pass down to our children. Check it out!

Here are a few family photos that illustrate our life on the homestead.

 Permaculture is a system of agricultural and social design principles centered around simulating or directly utilizing the patterns and features observed in natural ecosystems.

Youth in Agriculture

 This approach guides us to mimic the patterns and relationships we can find in nature and can be applied to all aspects of human habitation, from agriculture to ecological building, from appropriate technology to education and even economics.

Start Em Young!

 By adopting the ethics and applying these principles in our daily life we can make the transition from being dependent consumers to becoming responsible producers. This journey builds skills and resilience at home and in our local communities that will help us prepare for an uncertain future with less available energy.
