Thank you for visiting Practical Self Reliance! I’m so glad you stopped by, and I hope I can help you on your journey toward self-reliant living. Come by anytime for practical advice, encouragement and a lot of how-to.
I’m Ashley…a homesteader, homeschooler, home-fermenter and home-body. I love taking in a good book almost as much as I love lumberjacking, foraging and salt curing a ham. When I’m not tending the littles you’ll most likely find me in the woods trying to identify some form of plant or fungal life.
My goal is to help motivate and inspire you to take steps toward self-reliance today. It doesn’t matter whether you’re living in a small apartment in the city, or out on the land in rural America. Baby steps or big leaps, it’s your choice.
I live on 30 acres in rural Vermont along with my husband and two young children. Over the years we’ve raised just about everything including goats, pigs, chickens, geese, ducks, rabbits and bees. These days our efforts concentrate on perennial agriculture, foraging and mushrooms.
Thanks for visiting!
