Becoming More Self Reliant

A lot of people have the dream of a few acres of land and self reliance (as opposed to self -sufficiency, which is a myth!). This group is to draw together the experiences of those living the dream and sharing the lessons learned on the way with those still working towards living on the land.See More

Thank you for the welcome Laine.

After years of 'dreaming' of this way of life, it's now reality.  Every moment is so full of purpose and our gorgeous remote property feeds my soul.

I look forward to learning & hearing more about other peeps in their paradise, on this site.

cheers and happy gardening

scruffy feathers are you sure they are not going through a moult? Mine have gone off lay too i was thinking it is too hot at the moment. with the one who is lying without a shell i read somewhere that the other thing that makes them lay without shells is a disease egg drop syndrome or a localised infection in the shell gland.

Dont know how how long she has been like that but my book say that you could put her on her own but if shes not right after a week you will have to man up and cull her.

These are the sorts of things that back up my understanding that the idea of self-sufficiency is outmoded (a throw back to the '60's) and that acknowledging our inter-dependence and the need to support one another within the context of largely autonomous, but inter-linked communities is the path forward, now that we have explored the drastic results of the manufactured and ultimately impossible ideas of excessive independence.
