A Teen with a Sustainable Dream

Hello there and welcome to my blog!

I'm a 16 year old homesteader trying to live a more simple and sustainable life. My hope is that I can provide educational and entertaining materiel on everything from raising livestock to gardening via this blog as well as my facebook page!(
I've been homesteading and trying to help my family live more self sustainable for about 2 years now.  But I've been raising chickens and turkeys for many, it is only the last couple years that I've truly considered myself a "homesteader" and have actively strived for the ability to no longer be dependent on the grocery store for every last thing. I follow tons of homesteading blogs but all of them seem to be about homesteading in places with green stuff called grass and this thing called rain.(which I'm a little jealous of grrr.)
I have yet to find a homestead blog that writes about their experience and tips and tricks for homesteading in a desert.
Homesteading in places with 4 seasons and tons of rain has its challenges but living in a desert has its very own set of unique obstacles that I have yet to find or have seen addressed and written about in the homesteading blogging community.
And I just happen to live and homestead in the heart of the Sonoran Desert.
So here I am! I hope I can share my experience of homesteading in a desert to the benefits of others and also show that ANYONE can make a step toward a healthier and sustainable life, if I, the high school struggling, crazy teenager can do it you can too! ;)
