Welcome to my life! This Sage Urban Homesteading website will share the down to earth technology and traditional skills that have become a basic, down to earth way of life for me and my family.
Sage growing in our garden of raised beds
I am passionate about eating real food, growing foods in my own garden, homemade cooking, urban farming, traditional crafts such as spinning and weaving, and getting in touch with the forgotten wisdom of our ancestors.
I use this knowledge to keep those I love happy and healthy.
And besides that, I have a fascinating husband who knows how to start a fire without using matches and how to make arrowheads from glass bottles. He has had some amazing adventures. We love going on hikes together and sharing a self sufficient, low impact lifestyle.
We've also become parents, which is quite a survival challenge in itself! We had a homebrith for our baby and intend to do homeschooling using the emphasis on handcrafts from the Waldorf and Reggio Emilia educational styles.
In other words, our toddler is playing with recycled treasures such as scraps of paper and old boxes instead of battery operated machines. When we start official schooling, things like knitting, crochet, and even hide tanning will be central parts of the curriculum.
You'll also find some unique coconut flour recipes from our special dietary needs shared on this urban homesteading website.
We have several raised beds for in our garden, a mini orchard of dwarf fruit trees, and we plan to add chickens to our yard soon for fresh homegrown eggs.
Please enjoy exploring my website and share your own homesteading skills and wisdom!
This is a website dedicated to describing my homesteading adventures near Baltimore, Maryland.
