Country Brunch for Lunch: Backyard Homesteading with Jeremy Picard
People call it backyard homesteading, suburban homesteading, or backyard farming. The basics are all the same – taking the space you have, and raising food on it by reclaiming vintage skills.
It’s become a somewhat trendy thing to do - as if it’s a revolutionary idea - but from the meat rabbits of the Great Depression to the victory gardens of the World Wars, backyard homesteading is a tried and true way of life.
You may be ready to take the plunge, but aren’t sure where to start. Jeremy will discuss how he turned his neighborhood ¼ acre into a productive homestead. His exuberant personality is contagious! Jeremy practices organic gardening, harvests his bounty, and raises poultry for eggs and meat with respect, gratitude, and love.
Join acclaimed herbalist daughter/historian mother duo, Ehris & Velya, as they host Jeremy at their unique 1770 Woodbury, CT farmhouse.
