I am a 35 year old wife and aspiring artist. I took a year off of work to pursue and educate myself on food preservation and urban homesteading. We live in Norfolk VA and will be moving to AZ in August.

How exciting! You must be learning so much on your path to homesteading. I think you'll find a plethora of invaluable information available on our website. Additionally, when you get into town, you'll find a rich network of highly experienced permies!

I encourage you to join the “Volunteer” Group to stay alerted of all the volunteer opportunities we have available even though you won't be arriving until August.
