Living Homegrown in the New Year

It is officially 2013 and I want to wish you all a Happy New Year filled with health, happiness and perhaps a few more homegrown vegetables!

I so appreciate each and every one of you as my readers and I love that we are all on this Living Homegrown journey together. Each of us is in a different place and yet we all learn so much from each other.

Thank you for taking time out of your busy lives to visit me here. I have lots more to share in the upcoming year!

The entire month of January will be a very special one here at Living Homegrown because this month, I am launching…


31 Days of Living Homegrown®

Inspiration, Information and Resources to help us live local, fresh and homegrown.

This month will be filled with DAILY POSTS to help you start the New Year right!

I will be sharing some of the best resources I’ve discovered in the areas of homesteading, sustainable gardening, canning and more. You will be introduced to a few of my gardening heroes (who have graciously accepted my invitation to be interviewed here). These people are fun, truly inspiring and so willing to share their knowledge with us. And I will also throw in a few tips and thoughts I have on how we can all live more local, fresh and homegrown! 

Some posts will be short, while others will be more detailed  and (hopefully) thought provoking. And I hope that we can all learn more from each other by sharing in the comments sections. I think it will be a great way to start the year and will perhaps motivate us to grow more food, take baby steps toward change or just connect a bit more with nature. The topics will include:

  • Eating & Sharing The Harvest
  • Growing
  • Homesteading
  • Connecting – both to the land & others.

It all starts later today…as we begin the next year of our “homegrown” lives. Thanks for letting me share my journey with you.

Make sure you are signed up to get my newsletters (weekly or monthly) so that you don’t miss any of the posts! I’ve got some GOOD stuff lined up and a few giveaways!

  • This is a great idea, Theresa–I can’t wait to read and learn from it! My own urban farm plan got a little derailed this year, so I’m looking for new inspiration to reset my goals.

      Well I’m so happy to know you will be joining me here for the 31 day trek Jen! We can swap notes as you restart your urban farm plan and you know you can ask me ANYTHING! Looking forward to 2013 (as I know you are too)!

  • Great idea! I will look for your daily inspiration as a kick in the pants! We have so many goals and wishes on our farm and for the garden that it’s sometimes (happily) hard to narrow down. We received a Foodsaver for Christmas and I’m itching to let a few hens go broody. New territory…
