We are blessed to live in a time where we have access to more information and communication opportunities than ever before.  Those opportunities are nowhere any more apparent than in the homesteading movement, where we enjoy an abundance of forums, YouTube channels, online communities, live events and podcasts—to name a few.  These resources are critical in that they not only provide practical knowledge and skills, but also bring people together and help build community.

In todays episode, I welcome Harold Thornbro—the founder and co-host of the Modern Homesteading Podcast.  He lives in a suburban neighborhood where he pushes the limits of what can be done on a small property, all while maintaining a neighbor friendly appearance.  In addition to his fantastic podcast, he blogs regularly at redemptionpermaculture.com, as well as hosts an Facebook community called the homestead front porch.

In this episode, we discuss:

* Harold’s bout with an aggressive form of cancer and how that drove him to a Keto diet

* How he began growing his own food and how that led him to begin to learn to cook

* What challenged he faced as he developed his suburban homestead

* How he developed perennial food forest systems on his property

* The idea of ‘edible landscaping’ and how that concept has helped him maintain a good relationship with his neighbors

* The benefits of raising qual for eggs and meat

* Using cover crops in the garden

* The idea that we should all get started where we are on our homesteading journey
