Do you want to grow your own food or maybe doing a little more DIY instead of buying everything from the box stores but don’t know how or where to start? 

This is the episode for you!

My guest Stephanie shares the ins and outs of starting with what you have space and time for and growing from there. 

Stephanie shares how she found 

  • Replacing everyday items such as cleaners, soaps, foods with high preservatives can be very cost-effective and simple.
  • Becoming a lifelong learner and sharing that with your kids is beautiful. 
  •  Helping them see the difference between need vs. want carries over into other aspects of life

My favorite part of the conversation is when Stephanie shares her story of making the switch to homegrown and how not everyone understands it at first, but then it just becomes the norm
