Homesteading - without land!

Our ancient ancestors lived a nomadic lifestyle roaming the wilds of Britain before it even had a name, and our more recent ancestors knew exactly how to use every part of the changing landscape and it's produce.

We figure that the term 'homesteading' is about making the most of what you've worked hard for, so you can continue to enjoy it for the rest of the year. And since home is where the heart is, we also figure that the term can be applied to wherever you find yourself living and working - no farm land required!
