Ben Hewitt , Author, The Nourishing Homestead
I started down this homesteading path long before I had children, and happily continued to sink my hands into the soil alongside my growing kids.
My passion is to share the homesteading lifestyle in a way that is inspirational, joyful, and accessible for your unique life. Family Homesteading is equal parts how-to and you-can-do-it! I share stories from my own life, and from the life of other amazing homesteaders, alongside kid-friendly projects and recipes from our working homestead.
Above all, Family Homesteading is about connection – with nature, with the seasons, and with each other.[/text_block]
