Om, Om, Om... I call it the window of life! I transformed this window in a greenhouse just by installing few shelves on it. What intrigued one of my guests this weekend was why I’ve picked this bedroom window. I did it because this window is located at the southern side of the building to achieve the most amount of direct morning sunlight to my exterior garden starting plants. Morning light is the most beneficial time of the day for new growth. Sun from the west will be adequate also but plants in window greenhouses facing this southern direction will grow as rapidly. The WRI report on Creating a Sustainable Food Future estimates that we need about 70% more food in 2050 than we have today in order to provide every one of the 9.6 billion world population with a daily intake of 3,000 calories. It's a huge challenge, but unlike other sustainability challenges, everyone can play a part in the solution. Be aware! If everyone tried to grow their own vegetables it would bring home how difficult food production is. Join your sustainable community! Join www.terrabelha.com !!!

🐢This is handsome Rolo 🐢. He's our big-hearted Weenie pup. He is 1 of 5 in our furry family. He's a rescue for whom a 6 hour drive to retrieve was nothing. It was love at first sight after seeing his sweet face in a single blurry picture about 6 years ago. He is such a sweet boy and loves to bask in warm sunshine, chase things into the woods, or snuggle under bed covers (& yes there have been many nights of thunder where we have hosted all 5 dogs AND our toddler in our full-sized bed πŸ™ŠπŸ˜³πŸ˜). THANKFULLY we just upgraded to a Queen size! . His best buddy is our old man Amigo (our short haired boy chihuahua). He will no doubt NOT be our last Weenie-hound ❀️--once you have a Dachshund there's no not having one 🐢! πŸ‘ΆHe is also the youngest of our furry kids so, although we know not every one of our sweet old pups will see the land we purchase in 5-6 years for the Farmstead, this guy will most likely be one of our first official Farm Dogs πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€πŸŒΎ πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸŒΎπŸΆ ---------------------------------------------- #weenlife #dachshunds #rescueanimals #rescuedogs #foreverhome #adoptnevershop #furryfamily #furrychildren #redweenie #ourfamily #homesteaddog #farmdog #huntingdog #rescuedog #veganblogger #homesteadbloggers #homesteadblog #veganfarmers #homesteading #veganfarmers #vegangarden #vegangardener #permaculture #veganpermaculture #animalphotography #rightwhereweare #slowandsteady #petphotography

πŸ₯„Made our first official jars of jam. Foraged wild blackberries and organic blueberries. No pectin and low sugar. πŸ₯„ -------------------------------------------------- INGREDIENTS: 1 unpeeled Apple, processed in a food processor until chopped well (or you can shred with a cheese grater) 2 cups foraged blackberries, mashed 2 cups blueberries, mashed 1 cup raw sugar 2 teaspoons citrus juice (I used lime) DIRECTIONS: Heat all ingredients in a small pot until just bubbling. You can mash the berries at this point. (OR--I prefer to mash before heating but it's up to you). Continue to cook until soft. Mash more as needed. When finished, transfer while hot into sterilized mason jars (+ lids)- (water bath canned) or allow to cool in the pot and put in clean glass containers in the fridge. Will last about 2-weeks in the fridge not canned and sealed. -------------------------------------------------- #canning #preserving #jammaking #preserves #foragedberries #foraging #foraging #homestead #homesteadblogs #homesteading #homesteadingblog #permaculture #veganpermaculture #veganicfarming #veganicgardening #veganhomesteading #veganhomesteaders #permaculture #veganfarmers #vegangardeners #northcarolina #appalachia #foodforests #earthstewardship #earthcare #peoplecare #fairshare #veganasheville #vegankids #veganfamilies

Amidst the abundance of summer solstice, may we be mindful of the vital forces that surround + sustain us. From the Sun, to the plants, to us, and back again.

http://www.learnpermaculture.com/blog/319-save-our-soils This is so important, growing crops for animals and using monoculture systems to feed ourselves are destroying the soil structure and causing massive erosion which is in turn poisoning the sea... #veganic #nodig integrated perennial planting, polyculture and #forestgardening #agroforestry #woodlandgarden #growingyourownfood are positive appropriate solutions.

🌱 Things are growing! 🌱 -------------------------------------------------- Because of our move from Kansas City this year our "spring garden" took the form of starting a Children's Garden at the cohousing community we landed in. Every time I visit our little garden here I am stunned and amazed at the beauty and life and health present in this little space. We harvested some of the greens for our Hispanic themed potluck and movie night with the kids last night (we watched Coco ❀️). -------------------------------------------------- #veganicfarming #veganicgardening #veganhomesteading #veganhomesteaders #permaculture #veganpermaculture #veganfarmers #vegangardeners #northcarolina #appalachia #foodforests #earthstewardship #earthcare #peoplecare #fairshare #veganfamilies #simpleliving #kitchengarden #perrenials #annuals #herbgardens #flowergardens #foodgardens #biodynamics #smokeymountaingardeners #vegetablegarden #cohousing #childrensgarden #harvest

✨We found our paraffin oil lamps ✨ #unpacking #settlingin #KCtoTheSmokies -------------------------------------------------- After reading Simplicity Parenting by Kim John Payne a year and a half ago we changed a lot in our daily lives. One of those adjustments was to allow back into our lives the natural rhythms of the sun and the seasons. When it gets dark at night we try our best to limit the artificial delaying of the darkness. We try and practice living closer to the natural rhythms of nature, the sun, and the seasons and it has been such a wonderful change. We sleep better, we rest more. Sometimes it's hard in a world geared to be fluorescent 24/7---But our bodies, minds, souls and hearts all function better this way. In the move from KC we had to keep these as other personal items in storage for 6 months while we shared a small house in a cohousing community, and now that we are unpacking all our boxes we are very thankful to be able to re-fresh our pursuit of more simplistic and natural rhythm living. -------------------------------------------------- #veganicfarming #veganicgardening #veganhomesteading #veganhomesteaders #permaculture #veganpermaculture #veganfarmers #vegangardeners #northcarolina #appalachia #foodforests #earthstewardship #earthcare #peoplecare #fairshare #veganfamilies #simpleliving #kitchengarden #perrenials #annuals #herbgardens #flowergardens #foodgardens #biodynamics #smokeymountaingardeners #simplicityparenting

Zero waste. That's the ideal. The journey is much longer & tougher at times than most people like (including ourselves). But one of the ways our family tries to make a zero-waste lifestyle a reality is by re-using our spaghetti, peach, pickle & other glass jars. We even re-use the mason jars we purchased for our wedding decor! We use these jars to store leftover chili or soup in the fridge, to keep our sourdough starter in, and to buy and store bulk food items. We aren't so great at always remember to take them along to the store so this is our honest confession that, well, we are still "on our way". You can check out our Farmstead Journal under the "Learning" section to see my (Athena's) post on other ways our family is striving for a more zero-waste πŸ‘£ footprint. -------------------------------------- | Learning Post #1 | zero-waste ideals (a process, not an overnight destination) | -------------------------------------- #realpeople #reallife #veganlifestyle #veganicfarming #veganicgardening #veganhomesteading #veganhomesteaders #permaculture #veganpermaculture #veganfarmers #vegangardeners #northcarolina #appalachia #foodforests #earthstewardship #earthcare #peoplecare #fairshare #veganfamilies #simpleliving #kitchengarden #perrenials #annuals #herbgardens #flowergardens #foodgardens #biodynamics #smokeymountaingardeners #zerowaste

One of our favorite things to practice as learning & growing homesteaders is making fresh homemade bread! This loaf is being prepared with a sourdough starter we received as a gift from a friend. It will need to sit for at least 24 hours before we bake it (pictures to come of the final loaf!!!) β€’ Did you know? Sourdough starter can be used in all sorts of different recipes from muffins to pancakes and waffles to crackers and pizza crust! We will post this recipe + some other resources for those interested in learning more ways to use (or even start your own) sourdough starter on our Farmstead Journal this week!! . . . . . . #sourdoughstarter #freshbread #homemadebread #sourdough #veganbread #veganrecipes #homesteadlearning #homesteadskills #veganicfarming #veganicgardening #veganhomesteading #veganhomesteaders #permaculture #veganpermaculture #veganfarmers #vegangardeners #northcarolina #appalachia #foodforests #earthstewatdship #earthcare #peoplecare #fairshare #veganfamilies #simpleliving #kitchengarden #flowergardens #foodgardens #biodynamics #smokeymountaingardeners

Yesterday's harvest. I'm a fucking garden rebel! At least according to the father of Permaculture: Β»I teach self-reliance, the world's most subversive practice. I teach people how to grow their own food, which is shockingly subversive. So, yes, it’s seditious. But it’s peaceful sedition.Β« β€” Bill Mollison I love you Bill. You will forever stay in my heart.

VEGAN PERMACULTURE // Today signifies a landmark in my life. It's not every day I get to meet an idol, let alone sit in four hours traffic putting the world to rites, go for a pint and get to work on a project so close to my heart and beliefs. @burnett.graham you resonate so clearly with my interpretation of #permaculture and it gives me great honour to work with you and our extended and talented family @friendanimalrescue to demonstrate how vegan permaculture can work for the benefit of animals in an animal rescue sanctuary.

Life after death // Release of the cows at @friendanimalrescue yesterday. Thanks to the committed and courageous people at FRIEND animal sanctuary in Kent, animals have been given another happy chance in life. πŸ•Š So many #vegans turned up to help work around the site with a passion and dedicated enthusiasm. The energy was electrifying, such good vibes from people sharing the same just cause. πŸ•Š There are so many lessons to learn from such interactions with people and animals. I believe that one day soon, such places will set a precedent for how we will transition into animal equality/welfare via the #vegan movement and allow us to understand how co-operation in life can benefit all beings, creatures great and small, on our shared home/planet, via #permaculture. πŸ‚πŸŒ³β€

I always come away feeling inspired and proud to have such a project so close to home. I hope and know, that one day soon, every city and town around the globe will be driven by #permaculture #ethics , creating abundance by design and encouraging/educating all to reverse their impact on the planet to a wholly positive one for people, communities, animals and the planet alike. When that day comes, we'll have found our purpose and see peace on #Earth. πŸ•ŠπŸŒπŸŒŽπŸŒ

#vegan #activism ✊ // I try to involve myself in as many forms and activities as possible, as I feel I owe so much to animals and in hope to inspire change in others and as fast as possible. It's important to try different activities as I've found I am better suited to some than others. πŸ•Š I've been subconciously interested in gardening since I was very young, initially growing up with my grandfather and watching him on his patio garden growing food in East London, to now managing two allotment plots and assisting in other related projects. πŸ•Š I had an awakening a few years back when I stumbled upon the concept of #permaculture. Within an instant I was sold to the philosophy and could see the revolutionary potential - I had found my calling. πŸ•Š Permaculture gives people, nature and the planet power back in so many ways. But from an activist perspective, I feel I can physically make positive actions in my local environment and get involved with other incredible projects remotely around the world. πŸ•Š Farming, in my opinion, is the biggest cause to climate change, animal welfare, habitat destruction, health of the people and planet as a whole. As a VEGAN PERMACULTURIST, my aim in this life is to change this and I'm picking up the tools mother nature has left to aid us along the way! ✊
