Starting Seeds Of Community S1E2

Hello, fellow homesteaders and preppers! This is Ryan from backroadshomesteading.com, and today, I’m thrilled to bring you another enriching episode of our podcast, titled “Starting Seeds of Community.” This episode isn’t just about planting seeds in the soil; it’s about sowing the seeds of camaraderie and resilience in our homestead and prepper communities.

Seeding Trays and Sowing Community Bonds

As I speak, I’m in the barn, hands deep in the soil, starting trays of seeds, a ritual that marks the promise of new beginnings. But this act is more than just agricultural; it’s a metaphor for how we, as a community, can start and nurture the growth of our connections and support systems. Just like these seedlings that require care and attention, our homestead and prepper communities thrive on the mutual support and shared wisdom of their members.

More than Just Farming: A Discussion on Farm Shares and Goldbacks

The conversation goes beyond the soil and seedlings. We delve into the concept of farm shares, an innovative approach that allows community members to reap the benefits of local produce and support local farming. But our discussion doesn’t stop at agriculture. We also explore the fascinating world of goldbacks, an alternative currency that’s gaining traction among preppers and freedom-loving individuals seeking a reliable and tangible exchange medium, especially in these turbulent times.

Current Events and the Promise of an Early Spring

In this episode, we also touch on some current events shaping our world and our communities. And there’s good news to share – Phil the groundhog didn’t see his shadow, heralding an early Spring! Recording this episode was a true delight, as I found myself in a T-shirt, basking in the 70-degree sunshine, soaking up the warmth in the garden. It’s moments like these that remind us of nature’s cycles and the promise of renewal and growth.

Closing Thoughts

As we wrap up this episode, I want you to remember that every seed you plant, every community bond you forge, and every step you take towards self-reliance is a testament to the resilience and spirit of our homesteading and prepping lifestyle. Let’s continue to nurture these seeds and relationships because, just like the early Spring on the horizon, there’s a season of growth and prosperity awaiting us.

Until next time, keep sowing, keep growing, and keep sharing your light with the world. This is Ryan, signing off from backroadshomesteading.com. Stay rooted, my friends!

Moving Forward: Exciting Updates and Plans on the Homestead!

Welcome back, fellow homesteaders and friends of the Backroads!

Ryan here again, and I’m thrilled to bring you the latest updates from our beloved homestead. Just this morning, I wrapped up an oil change on our trusty car, and it got me thinking about all the progress we’ve made and the exciting plans we have in store. So, I figured it’s the perfect time for a hearty update!

2024 Thoughts And Ideas

A Glimpse into Our World

Our homestead has been a hive of activity lately. We’ve reclaimed our tractor, been busy laying water lines, and let me tell you, we’ve got a lineup of videos that we can’t wait to share with you! Our schedule is getting packed, with live streams aimed for every Friday or Saturday and fresh videos every Tuesday and Thursday. We’re all about hands-on work here, and whether it’s changing oil or exploring alternative energy sources like waste oil heaters, we’re diving deep into the world of sustainable living.

A Direct Line to Our Community

We’re beyond excited to announce that our website is now live, complete with an active email list! This platform is our way of connecting directly with you, our community. Given the nature of our content, not everything is YouTube-friendly, so we’ve taken to platforms like Rumble X and our very own newsletter to ensure you don’t miss a beat. For those who choose to support our channel, we’re rolling out membership perks – from exclusive content and stickers to a heartfelt thank you letter.

Homesteading, Community, and Beyond

Our vision extends far beyond just maintaining a homestead. We’re talking about a vibrant, thriving community. We’ve got plans for primitive camping sites for those adventurous spirits and a dive into agritourism. But it’s not just about us. We’re laying down water lines, setting up fences, and planting a variety of berries and fruit trees – it’s about creating a space where self-sufficiency meets community spirit.

We’re active across social media, and we cherish the direct, uncensored line of communication that our email list and potential print newsletters offer. These platforms are our way of ensuring that our journey, our learnings, and our community’s stories are shared far and wide.

The Journey Ahead

As we gear up for the future, we’re reminded daily that homesteading is not just about the land; it’s about the people, the community, and the shared journey towards a more sustainable, fulfilling way of life. Our mission is to support local agriculture, promote self-sufficiency, and foster a space where life is lived in harmony with nature.

We’re here to share, to grow, and to support each other every step of the way. Whether it’s through our videos, our membership program, or our social media channels, we’re building more than just a homestead – we’re nurturing a community.
