Modern Homesteading 101

April 9, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Discovery Treks–Inspired by You!
Shaker Village’s 2016 Discovery Treks are curated weekend programs designed to inspire new perspectives through Shaker lessons of community, sustainability and ingenuity. Register today to start your discovery!

While the Shakers lived off of the land out of necessity, modern-day homesteading has resurfaced as more people see the benefits of simple living and eating healthy, sustainably-grown foods. Modern homesteading refers to living a lifestyle that promotes greater self-sufficiency. It’s about using less energy, eating healthy local foods and making wiser choices that improve the quality of life for your family and your community.

Learn how to maximize the space in your backyard through careful planning and the creative re-use of existing resources to leave a more responsible ecological footprint. Walk away with a plan, including the beginning steps, basic tools and methodology used to start living a more sustainable life.
