No keys to hand over, but it’s official—I’ve purchased 14 acres of raw land. This city girl will now have to figure out how to make this a home, a farm, and a new way of living. My plan is to build a simple, low-energy natural home that limits my fossil fuel use as well as other resources. I’ll soon be busy clearing fields, improving the soil, planting crops, and building a barn. As the project progresses, I hope to learn how to raise chickens and goats, and to produce food using natural practices. Come along for the ride as I learn new skills.
