We have an ~ 1 acre lot in the suburbs and homestead on 1/4 of it. We have chickens and 7, 50 foot garden beds filled with veggies and cut flowers. My husband and I are, by no means, experts. However, it has been a bumpy road as we learn to do most of it without the assistance of a mentor or older family members who share the same lifestyle ideals. With this in mind, we are considering offering some homesteading classes here in our own home to assist others who are traveling along the same path as we are and could learn from both our successes and mistakes. We just don't know where to begin! We are looking for some advice on how to start. We have experiential knowledge in gardening, canning, and chicken raising. I also have limited knowledge in sewing. My husband is a skilled carpenter. Once given a framework/example, we are pretty good. Any suggestions would be appreciated!
