I must admit, while I fancy myself as being quite knowledgeable as a homesteader, there is one area in particular I didn’t have the slightest clue how to tackle. Although I had a good grasp on heating and cooking without electric, I had no idea what to do when it came to getting water. Thankfully, my good friend Amber Bradshaw has returned to help us all tackle our water systems. If you missed out last episode, Amber is a published author and he family’s journey to off-grid living has been featured on the History Channel, Discovery Channel, and the D.I.Y. Network.
In this podcast episode, Amber details how they capture and filter water, how they determined daily water usage per person, how they provide water for animals and crops, and so much more. She even provides ideas for wind-energy solutions that can power a water heater! No matter if you’re looking to go fully off the grid or simply looking to protect yourself in the face of extreme weather conditions, Amber offers a wealth of information to help cover every problem. This is one episode you definitely don’t want to miss!
