In this episode I speak with Ross Crutchfield of Making A Homestead, his site devoted to the projects and experiences of building his homestead one day at a time. Ross and I know each other from The Survival Podcast, which is dedicated to “Living a better life, if time’s get tough or even if they don’t.”
Ross learned about Permaculture through Jack’s podcast and Introduction to Permaculture Class (HS432/HS590).
Listen to Ross talk about the challenges, failures, and successes of improving his own piece of suburbia. If you are looking for a ways to begin changing your Zone 0 and Zone 1 his site has many hands on projects to get you started.
