Group Description

My Suburban Homestead is dedicated especially to those who, while dreaming of the ultimate off-grid homestead in the countryside or in the deepest wilderness, are making their dream come true one step at a time within the suburban wilderness.

Are you building your first greenhouse, or planting your first garden? Do you enjoy canning & other methods of food preservation? Are you changing your priorities & your use of fossil fuels, adding solar panels or non-electric appliances to your home? Do you bake, quilt, sew your own clothes, fish, or supplement your income with a booth at your local Farmer's Market?

Whether you're planting your very first seed, building a chicken coop in your back yard or finally making the big move to the land you've been saving for and dreaming about for years, this group may be for you!

There are a few simple rules in this group, which will apply to everyone, including myself & any mods I may add in the future.

NO off-topic forwards.

Every member of this group is valued; we are a like-minded community working toward the same goal - a better, more rewarding, healthier life through self-sufficiency. Don't make others feel unwelcome.

Foul language & swapping of insults is inappropriate. If you bring it onlist you'll be warned & put on moderated posts. A second offense may result in termination at the owner's discretion.

Religion is too hot a topic. Religious signatures are only approved if they don't attack another's beliefs; if a sig offends you ask that member offlist (kindly) to reconsider it, with an explanation. The only religious posts allowed are those relating directly to homesteading (as it impacts/is impacted by your dietary requirements, lifestyle, etc.) & prayer requests; any further discussion of a prayer request should be private/offlist (updates are fine).

New members are moderated briefly. Try not to stray too far off-topic. Feel free to email me with concerns or questions. Now, let's talk homesteading!!
