There is no one definition of homesteading. Upon searching for what it “means” to be a homesteader or to live on a homestead, we came across a multitude of answers. This person could be a farmer from the rural outskirts of town, or an urbanite looking to get back to their roots. It is a personal experience, where the only requirements are to be adventurous, creative, and adaptable. Compiling this issue inspired us to be creative, make a few small changes in our lives, and take the first steps towards becoming more self-sufficient. We hope it will do the same for you.
