Homesteading: The Past Might Save The Future
Local Business provides resources, guides and info about homesteading techniques.
What is homesteading? Homesteading is a form of self-sufficiency; growing food and living off the land. This is not to say that societies advances are all tossed into the binů in fact, a homesteading creed is to use everything until it's used up. Homesteading is a way of detaching a bit from the concrete, pesticides and institutions that make up the modern world.
The Back40 website and Facebook page embraces these ideals. This is not a strict granola eating, world shunning site. Back40 lays out ideas for people who want to slow down life a bit. Visitors learn various techniques for gardening, including composting, where to find non-Gmo seeds, and the importance of maintaining soil. There are articles on reducing the dependence on fossil fuels, like harnessing solar and wind power. Food preservation techniques play an important role, whether it's canning or dehydrating. And there are also articles on reconnecting as a family, and teaching children to live more simply, without the distractions of electronic toys.
There is a survival component to Back40. Enough people are worried that the world can't go on the way it is, and one day life as we know it now will end. Without being alarmist, Back40 teaches preparation for emergency, alongside preservation of the harvest for winter.
"Connection to our food and our families is so important to those of us at Back40", says Bill Powell, co-founder of Back40. "We want to share the tools we use for homesteading, in the hopes that others will feel confident in giving independence a try".
