Within this, topics include permaculture, off-grid living, clean eating, environmentally friendly and organic gardening, pasture-raised animals for food, canning, cooking and baking from scratch, hunting, whole food diet, making soap and much more. Check out these great podcasts to listen to and learn from.
This is one of my favorites. Amy and Stacy talk at length about building an off-grid permaculture homestead. They go into length on gardening for food, including children in homesteading and learning about how to keep different livestock together to best use land management. They also have some great guests on to help people learn more about homesteading, permaculture and living off-grid. Bonus: they sell some seeds including walking onions and comfrey.
I have greatly enjoyed this podcast. There are five seasons worth to listen to. It is an awesome one for me because she is in Texas which is not far from where I live in Louisiana. Her tips and tricks on gardening are super helpful to me and easily applicable. This series just ended but it is worth checking out the last seasons, especially if you garden in the south.
