I am attracted to the ideas of simple living, self-sufficiency, and homesteading. In fact, I am currently looking to buy some commercial real estate for our dojo so that I can use it as my laboratory for sustainable living ~ more on that when the time comes.
In my research, I found some great websites about sustainable living and homesteading that I wanted to share with everyone.
Countryside & Small Stock Journal
The Countryside & Small Stock Journal was established in 1917 that is "serving that branch of the Voluntary Simplicity movement seeking greater self-reliance".
The website features articles from Homesteading as a business to Gardening to Survival skills. They also feature a blog called the Scarecrow Chronicles which is regularly updated with articles.
Backwoods Home Magazine
Backwoods Home is "packed with solid, practical, hands-on information on a wide range of self-reliance topics."
And packed it is with great articles like...
- For a truly independent energy system, your choices are solar, wind, and water
- Kick the credit card habit and learn to stash cash
- Garden spaces for small places
Mother Earth News has tons of articles that are refreshed daily. They call themselves "The Original Guide to Living Wisely."
They feature sections on Do It Yourself, Renewable Energy, Green Homes, Organic Gardening, etc. with tons of excellent content.
- Save Energy with Winter Window Treatments
- Supereasy Compost Bin Plans: Check Out This How-To Video
- Five Minutes a Day for Fresh-Baked Bread
