Self-Sufficiency Lifestyle

So you think you want to become self-sufficient! Do you hanker after a simpler, greener less stressful lifestyle ? STOP ! before you leap with both feet, and sail off into the sunset !!, there are some serious decisions to be made. Yes, living a self-sufficient life brings huge rewards, delicious fresh organic food, working closely with nature, the opportunity to work with your hands and develop new skills, but there is also a downside. Mother Nature is not always kind, crops fail for many reasons and all your hard work and your future food may disappear overnight, animals die and just the daily chores of living - getting food, water , wood, fuel – can become demanding.

Living a self-sufficient life is not just about a skills set, it is very much about a mind-set, one which requires deep reserves of resilience, determination and resourcefulness. It is also a lifestyle that impacts upon families, particularly children and so careful consideration of all aspects of living a self-sufficient lifestyle is essential if your dream is to be fulfilled.
