I worked an injury I had too hard and now I'm paying for it in hurting everyday. Thanks so much for this post because now I'm thinking I can still homestead, even with an injury. I was worried I wouldn't be able to, but it seems so many other people do. And I'm still quite young. :) Thanks again for posting Ryan.

Hey James,

I'm a millenial permie, 1981- and I attribute my want to live this way with being raised a second and first generation american. It seems to make a difference I've found.

To be honest, I have tried everything natural and I still need to be on a mental health med for the rest of my life most likely. And I am ok with this. But it's only one. And I tried to detox offf everything. I even healed my gut using all good gut foods and diet. And I healed my yeast mostly. I got off a LOT of medication previuosly too. And I did get it down to one. I homesteaded and ate organic and followed gut health protocols. I wish you all the best in decreasing if you can. But then again not feeling badly if you need these meds.  Dr. Aviva Romm is a good go-to for hormones. And weston a price for gut health, which seems to have a lot of support in the homesteading community. Donna Gates is good for yeast. Talking to a local herbalist can help A LOT.

In New England as well.  Message if you'd like to speak. SWF.
You read the forums on permies.com even when you don't have a speck of dirt to your name (aka moving), save a potted plant that is "borrowed".

Well. Here goes. I am not used to being obnoxious though.

I am a bigender person, born in a women's body. I was raised in a european family in the US and I traveled outside the country.
I hate peeing indoors as I feel it wastes compost. I hate it.

But, I'm forced to do it anyhow so I deal with it.

When you have a woman's body and you want to pee outdoors, generally it takes more work for us. It's not easy to stand and pee quickly.
We are also raised with shame. So we dont feel comfortable naturally "going" outside, because our culture in the US frowns upon it for some strange reason.

I lived on a homestead and got used to composting like...everything?
And currently I find myself tired of "giving specimens" on a daily basis, multiple times a day. ITS TIRING BEING IN A WOMEN"S BODY. I'm pretty sure all cis females feel this way, no matter how we choose to identify?

Correct me if I'm incorrect about yourself.

I live in a urban-ish environment- technically old mill-town territory. I do a lot of walking around town and wild foraging for things to add to my meals.
Does anyone else do this?
And, please no rude comments on "how not to forage, or wild harvest near the road", etc...

I lived in an area of the US where the deforestation and subsequent pollution was sickening, literally. It finally prompted me to wash with water, wipe with a rag, or just use leaves and eschew paper products except in emergencies, building, fire starting, tampons and pads sometimes, and writing paper, basically.

"Nothin wrong with wipin your bum with your hand. Just use your other hand to eat with."

People have been doing it for a long-ass while. My family used to use newspaper in europe. No thanks..I'll pass!

Hi there. My background is that I have some gardening experience, but most of it was with family when I was a kid. I also have some recent rural homesteading experience. And, I have experience working with farm animals and helping to raise them.
I really really really love to garden and also want to raise chickens!
I just moved to a new area and I want to start a garden here. I have less than an acre. The garden originally was started by my family when I was young and was more recently changed by a friend of the family who moved in. I am in the process of getting the property back and I am starting to plan the urban homestead/garden. Currently there are some young trees which do not produce edible fruit, tilled soil that looks like it supports vegetable growth, and berry bushes such as currant and gooseberry, and grape vines.
There used to be mature trees on the property and more soil and grass space, but over the years the trees were removed sadly and half of the property paved over. There is currently two small sheds with aluminum (?) siding, and a small greenhouse as well.
I have plans and goals of turning the front garden into a vegetable garden as well, as currently it is being used exclusively for flowers and grass. Eventually, I would love to break up the paving and turn it all back into soil and grass, apart maybe from one small paved parking spot.
Another thing is that the house is currently taking up almost 1/2 of the entire plot, which seems like an unbalanced amount, but it has been there for over 100 years. The house isnt necessarily updated expensively, but I feel it could be left to eventually be made smaller, if I am explaining this part well?
Thanks for all your support. I could use it. It seems daunting for me, myself, and I to be starting with even one whole acre basically by myself.
A note to mention is that I live on a limited budget currently and technically have a disability that means it takes extra time to get stuff done that others might be able to do much quicker.
