If there is anyone in North West or Central - North Carolina that wouldn't mind teaching I would enjoy learning some homesteading lessons. I already know how to milk a goat, make cheese and soap. I have successfully raised goats, chickens, ducks and horses. I have help package meat but I do have difficulty with the actually dispatching of animals (I have done it but not always as clean of a job as I would like to be able to do. And quite frankly I don't like it at all and would rather not have to do that job if I could avoid it) I am not the best gardener and tend to let the weed grow with the vegitables but can usually get enough to can every year that I do plant a garden. I could use help with more maintance things like plumbing and wood stove instillation and maintaince. Even if I never have to do any of the actual work It is helpful to know how it should be done. It might also be nice if when people are scheduling their own homesteading projects, canning, butchering, candle making etc that they post and invite others to join in. Kind of like a barn raising where many hands make it a get-to-geather and not a job.
