This homesteading group is for women who are witches of any good-aligned path. Here we may discuss our homesteads (or dreams of homesteads), our lives, our hopes, our dreams, our spiritual practices, our children, our grandchildren, our life mates. Think of it as a gathering of friends around the kitchen table for coffee.
As the name of this group implies, the focus will be on cottage witchcraft (also kitchen and hearth) and on homesteading which may incorporate green witchcraft.
Anything related to cottage, kitchen, hearth, or green witchcraft is happily welcome. Energy work, including Reiki, is also on-topic. Discussion of livestock is encouraged: horses, goats, sheep, chickens, ducks, turkeys, cows, bees, rabbits, etc. Home food production will be another big focus, including gardening, dairying, egg production, orcharding, beekeeping, etc. Further we will discuss home food preparation and preservation: cooking, canning, drying, freezing, cheesemaking, etc. Old-time crafts are ripe for discussion as well: soap making, spinning, fiber crafts, knitting, crochet, needle work, quilting, counted cross stitch, black-smithing, farriery, etc. And, of course, discussion of herbs, herbal medicines, and herbal spells is of great interest!
This is a broad topic area. Active participation is encouraged (lurking is discouraged and lurkers may be removed from the list).
The list rules are simple. Women only. No flaming. If you would not say it to a dear friend sitting in your kitchen, don't say it here. No spamming. What is said here stays here (don't copy anything that anyone else says here elsewhere, including other lists or your Yahoo profile / blog).
