I’ve learned SO much from all the homesteading groups I’ve been involved with. I wanted to give a little something back for all the knowledge I feel I’ve obtained from the selfless goodness of all involved in these various groups. Without all of you, I don’t feel I could be as successful in my homesteading adventures. So I am announcing the Great Appalachian Homesteading Conference two day pass giveaway!
Per Wikipedia: Homesteading is a lifestyle of self-sufficiency. It’s characterized by subsistence agriculture, home preservation of food, and it may or may not also involve the small scale production of textiles, clothing, and craftwork for household use or sale.
While Wikipedia may try to sum up homesteading in a quick paragraph, most of us who are involved know that it’s that and so much more. Homesteading is a difficult road. It’s not a path for everyone. Yet, through Facebook and other social media sites, I have met, embraced and made friends with so many good-hearted folks. My skills are at the beginning and I don’t always have the right answers to offer but I wanted to do something, especially during the holiday season (cuz I just love the holidays) to give back.
Here’s the small print: The winner of the pass must be present at the opening of the event (by 9am) on the first day to pick up the pass (from yours truly). So, this giveaway is available to those that will be able to attend the Conference which will be taking place on May 5th & 6th 2018 at the Tennessee Tech Hyder-Burks Agricultural Pavilion in Cookeville, Tennessee.
