About these videos

"Hello All,

Here is a new "Homesteading for Beginners" video series I started a few weeks ago on YouTube. The Permies community really helped me find my target audience and refine my process so I hope you will appreciate all the hard work that has gone in to it so far. At first, I was just taking shots in the dark on this channel. Now, I feel like I'm on a journey to something great and this is only the beginning! There are soooo many people to draw inspiration from in the permaculture community that I know I will never run out of ideas.

As always, your feedback is invaluable to the success of this series and to the channel as a whole. You Homesteading PROS out there are who I REALLY want to hear from! Please feel free to share all your thoughts and constructive criticisms! I have a thick skin too so don't be afraid to offend me either. Tell me what you like, what you don't like, what I should keep doing, what I should stop doing, what works, what doesn't and what you want to see more or less of on my channel. With your help, suggestions and support, I'm confident that we can build something great here that will appeal to a very wide audience!

My primary goal is to help other homesteading newbies, like myself, to actualize their Homestead Dream! So if you are just getting started and you have no idea what you're doing, or you need some ideas, this is the place for you!

For more on me and my story, please read the biography on my forum profile and check out my blog at http://maplegrove.productions!

Thank you for taking the time to read my posts and watch my videos. I truly appreciate your support! And don't forget to Dream BIG and Dream Often, my friends! :)

P.S. My first few "Homesteading for Beginners" videos will focus on preparing and planting bare root fruit/nut trees. I will then start branching out to other topics. Being that it's winter for me now, the focus will probably shift towards thrifty things like canning tips & tricks, for example. To be perfectly honest, I'm not exactly sure what I'm going to do for the next couple months but you can bet it will be interesting and unique! Before long it will be maple syrup season again so I plan to do a few videos around that, or maybe even dedicate a whole series to it since I have a good 30 years of experience to back it up. So stay tuned!"

Stay tuned for a couple of new "Homesteading for Beginners" videos on simple machines and DIY tools, starting with:

The Trundle Wheel đŸ”µ - a simple, DIY tool that makes measuring long distances a breeze. The best part is anyone can make one. They're super easy to build and operate!

 
Do the next thing next. That’s a pretty good rule. Read the tiny ad, that’s a pretty good rule, too.
It's like binging on 7 seasons of your favorite netflix permaculture show
