How to Begin Homesteading
One of the first things that you will need to do is to start to gather necessary tools together. These are the things that you will use to make and mend your clothes, home and garden. When you first consider homesteading, it is best to just get the basic tools until you get used to what you are doing. You will soon learn what tools you might need to get in future. By this point in time, some homesteaders are actually able to make many of the tools that they need. You should also find and plant your patch of land. Most homesteaders live next to the land that they plan to “farm”, but some urban dwellers are forced to get a piece of land elsewhere, such as a community garden. Where ever you start cultivating, make sure that you have the permissions which are required to allow you to grow vegetables according to local regulations. Growing food from scratch can take a long time, so don’t expect to become self-sufficient straight away.
