Have you ever wanted to live closer to your food but not known where to start? Then this class is for you! This is a basic introduction to homesteading, which means having a lifestyle of self-sufficiency. Homesteading can include growing your own produce and raising your own animals for meat or other products. This class will cover a range of activities possible in the area even if you just have a small yard at home!

We will start by doing a brief tour of my farm, including meeting the free ranging chickens, scoping out the activity in the bee hives, and saying hello to the small flock of dairy goats and their guard dogs. Each part of the tour will include tips for raising these animals, warnings, and potential products you can use and make.

Then we will sit down on the picnic tables underneath the elm trees and discuss the nitty gritty of homesteading. I'll go over tips on a variety of topics - from how to make the most of your land, deciding what crops to grow or animals to raise, and how to make a profit homesteading. Handouts included and questions welcomed.
Other things to note
There are domestic animals as well as wild animals on the farm. Our guard dogs give loud, warning barks that can be scary, but they are completely safe around people. You will encounter bugs, including spiders and ants. Parking is uncovered and limited.

After traveling across the globe, I decided the greatest way to live sustainably was to put down roots. I fell in love with ten acres and have been living and learning from my property for 12 years. I run a small permaculture-inspired farm that produces and sells eggs, honey (and hive products), fruits, vegetables, and herbs. I've learned a lot - mostly from mistakes - and am happy to share my knowledge so that others can experience success. In addition to being a certified permaculture designer, I've taken horticulture and entomology courses, and worked on several other permaculture farms. I'm also a certified science teacher, so I have the academic background to support my experiments in farming and homesteading, as well as a structured and comprehensive approach to teaching.

This was a really informative and interesting class for anyone that has any interest in homesteading and has a million questions they want to ask an actual person instead of Google. Sarah is a great host with tons of knowledge, tips, and bits of wisdom, and the farm is a very serene place to take all that in. Sarah is very warm, friendly, and inviting and made us feel welcome on the tour and like no question was too novice. 10/10 recommend!

We loved visiting Sarah and her farm. It’s a lovely spot, less than 30 minutes from Austin, and an inspiring example of what can be done with some care an patience.

Sarah was very informative with valuable resources and practical insight. Astute crop location & rotation knowledge. Enjoyed how Sarah shared how everything is re used / recycle around the farm. Very helpful outline presenting how one can get started

Amazing experience! Sarah has a background in tracing and it clearly shows. Loved not only getting a tour of her homestead, but also getting a full education around the process, how it’s evolved, and a glimpse of what it’ll look like for the future! Very eye opening.

Sarah's homestead was a peaceful retreat from the city. I left very inspired to have my own, and got some resources to check out. It's nice to see in person and her goats are so cute. Oh and her fluffy goat-protecting dog is angelic.
