Terrific Tip Tuesday!

One day we’ll sit down and schedule a bunch of these…I swear! 🙂

Today’s Terrific Tip is about making connections.

Having a great support system around you will make a huge difference.

Here’s my ode to Sonia and her crew… they’re so inspiring and have definitely given us some great ideas!

Sonia is the kinda lady you want around. Someone who knows a little bit about everything – she’s foraging, she’s raised a few flocks 😉 and she’s someone who is already living the homestead dream. We only wish she was a bit closer to us 😉

Beyond that – you want to go out and meet people. Get to know your local feed store crew, your agricultural society…find your inspiring people!

The internet is a great resource and a great place to start…my challenge to you though is to get out there and try the old school way*- get to know your neighbours, get to know your local resources… you’ll never know who you’ll meet!


*This challenge is brought to you by my inner introvert, who has to challenge herself to get out and actually talk/interact with people… 🙂

Welcome to another installment of Terrific Tip Tuesday!

Today’s theme is “Delayed” (my flights have been delayed, and thus, so is this post…)

We’re cheating (again!) and offering up another good’n from our friend Sonia (owner of the Happy Hippie Husky and fellow blogger)

Check out her tips on Family Foraging here.

I couldn’t have said it better.


Enjoy the journey! Let’s see those finds!
