    Homesteading vs Small Scale Farming, with Richard Grossman

    in Current Events

    Many homesteaders get side tracked by the promise of profiting from direct to consumer marketing style small scale farming.  Often the promise of profit is elusive and dreams are dashed.  In search of "making a living", many homesteaders lose sight of why they started this lifestyle in the first place.  What is the difference between homesteading and small scale farming?  Which is best suited for most American smallholders? Is selling food really the best way for homesteaders to earn money on their land?  Scott Terry and Richard Grossman discuss these questions and many more...

    Realistic Homesteading Expectations and Aspirations!

    Realistic Homesteading Expectations and Aspirations!

    Ask anyone who has kept a homesteading blog or Youtube channel over the last five years – myself included -- and they will tell you there’s a resurgence happening of folks wanting to get "back to the land", much as there was in the 1970’s. Becoming more self-reliant and sustainable is an aspiration shared by many. Recalling episodes of “The Waltons” or “Little House on the Prairie”, and armed with well-worn copies of “The Encyclopedia of Country Living”, or “Five Acres and Independence”, folks are scouting out property, plotting, planning, and saving up -- dreaming of the day when they can escape from the rat race and simplify their lives. Along with this dream, comes a vision of what life in the country on a small holding will bring and mean. Unfortunately, these expectations are not always grounded in reality. Let’s talk about what you can expect, dispell some common misconceptions, and tuck away those rose-colored glasses. As always, I want you to have success on your journey towards self-reliance while avoiding unnecessary disappointment and disillusion in getting there.

    We also have a question from a listener (sorry for getting off track), and learn about how to make some money with a rabbit business, and homesteading in general. Nick and Don discuss a few ideas that they have for marketing Rabbit and Quail along with making some financial sense of homesteading. It does take hard work, but it is also very rewarding!

Politics is part of this show, yet a very small part. We run through what we would do and talk about how we are looking to meet others in our areas and our communities now before things go bad. Fodder, fish and rabbits, a great combo! Nick tells us he will dig a nice septic system in his front yard and why. Don talks about the water and cooling situation in the desert of Arizona. What would you do? We talk about not only how to survive, but thrive.. Sound familiar?

    CREATIVE HOMESTEADING WITH PETER BALDWIN TO GIVE HUMANKIND A CHANCE TO SURVIVE

    in Culture

    ENVISION THIS: Off-grid, self-sufficient living that includes creative amenities and technology


     


    Peter Baldwin is a homesteading philosopher, pioneer, and entrepreneur.  He supports himself by manufacturing quality traditional and innovative wooden orchard ladders and drums of standard, custom, or traditional design.  He also facilitates drumming circles, sometimes on a community-sized drum, and teaches practical life skills in school-based programs.


     


    We are broadcasting from his amazing eco-cabin in Brooks, Maine, self-built for 1/10 the cost of a standard American home.  Our audio-tour of his homestead will include his farm; wind, solar, and geothermal power; self-built, innovative cool-box and root cellar food storage; hand water pump with water tank above a wood stove for hot water to sink and shower; bucket commode to produce humanure; and home-made laundry machine.


    He claims the eco-cabin runs on about ½ hour of muscle power a week!?  It also runs on Peter’s deep philosophical and humane commitment to giving civilization a chance to survive.  He will explain how, once we control our fears of change, we enter a vast frontier of opportunity for humankind.  We can develop greater connection to self and community; safe, secure, sustainable economies; and regional manufacture of goods and services that will provide full employment.


    This is one time we really wish we had video as well as audio capabilities, but check out Peter’s pictures at www.blogtalkradio.com/envision-this and his rap video presentation on YouTube: Peter Baldwin: Rapstar Incognito.  Okay, so Peter isn’t really a rapper but he is a star in our book. He lives his motto: “One People, One Earth, One Heartbeat.”
