I’m SO glad this discussion came up💕 I’ve been telling my Husband I’ve wanted to go more natural with all my products. We are def greenies with all of this as we are city dwellers soon to become mountain earth dwellers. Every part of my being is screaming natural. From detoxing my body via gut and down to a cellular level to my environment. I have Usnea growing on our mountain acreage and I desire to be just as pure as the air quality where we will build our circular  earthen home. Right now as city dwellers we have treated water.... once we get to the homestead we will collect rainwater and get from the waterfall stream (no icky foam..... happy dance as up in My area even the cleanest rivers and streams are polluted) we will only filter for drinking.... so going no poo....... could I start now, with the treated water we have, or wait till we get to our mountain land..... what type of results have you all had with different water types??

Good Morning!!! I’m looking forward to knowing so much more about the lifestyle we were created to live! I was divinely lead to the subjectS of foraging, wild edibles and medicinal plants that we source from nature shortly before we began searching for our self reliant off grid mountain land purchase. Everything is Divinely lead in my life, I know very little right now but have a feeling of desire and knowing Inside about the life my Family and I plan to live. This book would be the perfect addition to not only my library but to my heart and spirits desire to live this life of organic close to earth living.

Looking forward to following this post! My Husband and I found out about Cob from watching an episode of off the grid. We fell in love with earth based living and plan on building a 28’sq roundish cob home on our property in the TN Cumberland Mts.
I’ve wanted to find a forum where we can share the process of cob and building our natural off grid homestead and it looks like this is the perfect place!

We'd boil the water, put the coffee in to steep, then swing the pot by the handle in big, full circles letting centrifugal force push the grounds to the bottom of the pot. There was no lid and it freaked me out the first time our instructor did it, but it worked. Never a drop was spilled and it was pretty fun to do.



Sounds awesome! My Husband and I are moving to our homestead land in two months and in our plans for an outdoor kitchen we’d like to set up a fire pit with the ability to hang pots. This sounds like a fun idea. We love a good brew and willing to try many things to experience tasting different ways!

So it’s steeped like tea?? My method would be a pour
over. I do also have a 100% stainless fresh press. My pour over is amazing and the glass is intended for Uber HOT boiling water. Takes three minutes and the brew is coffee house exceptional. Our complete stainless steel French press is divine as well. Perks of having a coffee snob of a brother who frequents an eclectic organic small batch roaster in our area 😊 my Husband searched for days for a high quality open flame or fire percolating pot and found a sweet heavy duty stainless steel pot. Only glass is the little perking knob on the top. We found out that any enameled pots were actually toxic when heated.
I like the idea of a tea steeper and would work well for me in a pinch but I’d have to have multiples, as I’m a huge loose leaf tea drinker as well and tea drinkers can taste remnants of coffee from a mug or a steeper, even if thoroughly washed
