Hello - We are new here and just learning the site. We are a small family business in Western NC. Trying to learn gardening and natural building.
We are working on an Outdoor kitchen which will hold our Dry Stack bread oven (named Hestia for the Greek Goddess of the Hearth), a Dry Stack Cook Top (named Demeter after the Greek Goddess of the Harvest) and we plan another Oven which will be a cob oven. We just placed the Locust posts in the holes and are collecting stones, etc. for building. We have a gray water system that has worked fine for 6 years now, we use tons of wood chips and also build garden beds with buried wood (but I forget the name it is properly called - we started using wood in the garden eleven years ago without knowing it was a formal method). We are a family of five: three sons ages 24, 21 and 14. The older boys just moved back to the Homestead to start the Meanwhile, Back in Saluda business where they do yard work, Property Care Taking, outdoor activities and Cabin rentals. We look forward to "meeting" some of you and hope we will be able to add helpful tips.

Hello and Welcome Mary Ann, I'm in Sumter SC.

I do have a co-worker in that area who has a place up there and believe he knows quite a few 'like minded' people in that area. Looking forward to hearing more from you

Hello - we are having more storms here and will have to follow up once the internet/phones settle down. Everything here keeps going off / on by the minute. Will check back later. Thank you for saying hello. We enjoyed seeing your photos.
