Hey, I'm a new member of H.O.A and wanted to give a little intro. I live in Murrells Inlet, SC with my husband and 3 kids. We currently live in a subdivision and are taking the first steps into becoming a homestead. I have loved gardening my whole life and was part of the FFA as a teen. We practice the "grow where your planted" in life, and so we're growing our homestead beginnings in our small backyard. We have started raising rabbits this year to go with our yearly garden. We talked for a few years about adding in an animal that can help supply food needs, and with food shortages in stores this year it caused us to pull the trigger. Now we can not only grow produce that is free of chemicals but we can also grow meat that is free of chemicals. These steps have also caused our kids to want to join a local 4H group. Thankful for these small steps and for having a community of like minded people to grow with and learn from.
