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!(https://www.facebook.com/theteenagehomesteader/)
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! ;)
