More Q&A about living off the grid. Many people have asked about sustaining on just your garden. In fact people are surprised when we tell them that YES we do go to the grocery store. And yes, i do have to buy somethings. How can that be when you are suppose to be living off the grid?
THIS is the misconception we need to address. We arent removed from society, nor are we re moved from reality. AND reality is, no matter how self sustainable your homestead is..YOU GOTTA
ISHOP!!! From items for the pantry in bulk...to things you cannot grow. Could we survive with no grocery store and those items..YES! BUT as long as its available most homesteads off the grid will indeed go to the store to supplement. IS that cheating? IF you dont live off grid...you cant judge that it is!
So talk a walk with Starry as we answer those questions AND address...HOW MUCH ORK is involved in living off the grid? How hard is it???
ANOTHER huge misconception. Remember EVERY homestead is set up differently!
We focused on living more of free and independent lifestyle which focused on NOT being enslaved to farm animals..crops that need to be harvested and cared for. THERE is a way to SET up a off grid homestead that doesnt have to be filled with daily chores and work!! BUT that has to be your decision! you have the power to plan how you live and how much work wil be involved. For us on our homestead we have lots of free time. And when we do work it isnt slave driven. Its fun productive and fruitful!
So listen to our philosophy on this to!
