“Cultivating the Homestead Community”
Hmmm… so I just realized that I’m posting this Barn Hop about 10 hours later than I normally do… We got back from my company’s annual essential oil convention last night, and I am still feeling a little bit fried. 😉 It was a marvelous week, but my brain is having a little trouble getting back into the homesteading routine, so thanks for your patience!
And hey– I wanted to let you know about a pretty awesome educational opportunity that’s coming up. The Self Reliance Summit promises to be a treasure-trove of information right up a homesteader’s alley. You can register here for FREE. There will be two presentations available for you to listen to each day (and yes, it’s FREE!). Here a few topics that’ll be covered:
• When Disaster Strikes: What You Need to Know, Do, and Have on Hand
• Return to Your Roots: How Anyone Can Embrace the Homesteading Lifestyle
• Emergency Home Power. More Electricity than you need in a Disaster
• What most people don’t know about self-reliant living and preparedness
• Alternatives to Dentist – How to Prevent and Heal Common Tooth Ailments
• Creating Sustainable Food Forests, Building Community, and Staying Warm
• Emergency Herbal Medicine Storage
• Survival In A Nut Shell
• Water: What to do if the Tap Runs Dry
• Sustainable Medicine before, during and after a collapse
I happen to be one of the speakers, but can’t wait to hear some of the other folks–the line-up is impressive! Register here and see the full list of topics.
Now, on to the Barn Hop!
Did you share any homesteading related posts on your blog this week? If so, we’d love to have you link up below! Even if you don’t have a blog, we always welcome your comments!
Some Simple Guidelines:
1. Please remember that the Homestead Barn Hop is meant to be a place to share homesteading related encouragement and inspiring ideas specifically related to homesteading. In an effort to keep our weekly round-up clutter free, links which are not specifically homestead related, and any promotions such as giveaways, contests, carnivals, etc, will be deleted in order to maintain the integrity of the Barn Hop.
2. Please remember this is a family-friendly link up. Any pictures or posts linked to the hop which aren’t appropriate for our children to view or read will also be deleted immediately. We’re pretty conservative, so we ask that you use good judgment and err on the side of caution.
3. Make sure that you link to your Barn Hop post, not your blog’s main page, so your guests won’t have any trouble finding your great tips.
4. Please link back to the Homestead Barn Hop in the post that you share. Feel free to grab the banner at the top of this post to link back to us with.
5. Occasionally there is a problem posting due to glitches in the internet or the Linky Tools. If you have difficulties posting and it does not show up immediately, please wait a little while and try re-posting (this helps avoid double posting). We’re sorry for any inconvenience this may cause, be we do not have absolute control over the internet. Thank you for your patience and understanding!
Have fun, get to know some new homesteading friends, and be sure to join us every Monday! (If you are reading this post via email, click through to see all of this week’s links!)
