Listen To The Podcast
Heather works in the aviation industry and travels for work more than she’s home. She has had small gardens in the past, but it wasn’t until 2021 that she and her husband Bob decided that they were going to dive into homesteading full throttle.
Heather shares how they have been obese most of their lives and they both have heart conditions. Her husband has a pacemaker with a defibrillator and eating healthier has become a priority for them.
Heather doesn’t have a formal education in anything agricultural…yet, she has learned everything through experimentation, advice from friends and family, and hours and hours of research. As it really started becoming clear that she had a knack for homesteading, she decided that she needed to share her experiences with the world and hopes to inspire others.
As they dove deeply into homesteading, they realized that the best way for them to have a sustainable farm was to dive deep into permaculture. Heather reminds us all that if she can grow her own food in the middle of a city while traveling more than she’s home, anyone can do this.
