How to do a On-Farm Workshop
Austin Martin “Homesteady Live“ Audio in player below!
On the farm this week we successfully planted an entire orchard in just a few hours! How did we get so much work done in so little time? With an on-farm workshop! On-farm workshops are a great way to help a farmer get a lot of work done in a timely manner, and a great way for farm dreamers and homesteady types looking to spend some time living the farm life get some real hands on experience.

Best Teacher in Life is Life Itself~
Host: Denob “The Prepared Canadian”
There is no better teacher in life than life itself. What I mean by this is that actual hands on experience is the best way to gain knowledge and skill sets that you may need. Sure, we can read up about something in books, over the internet, and even ask our friends and neighbors, but getting your hands dirty, so to speak, is the best way to practice that which is being preached to us.
That being said, I am going to take a much different approach this week. Instead of picking a topic such as water purification, or composting, or alternative energy and rambling on for the better part of an hour, I’m instead going to share some of my experiences with you on a range of subjects that I’ve actually gotten into in recent history.
You’ve heard the term “A walking Encyclopedia,” true in today’s world it conjures up a different vision than prior to the digital media explosion, but there are still some left out there with the truth and facts and they eat, breath, laugh and share. Are you taking advantage of this huge Prepper Resource? Sunday, Father’s Day 2013 on The Other Side…A Preppers Path Lynna receives a treat and real bonus as her very own walking encyclopedia joins the show. Born a decade after WWI but at the beginning of the Great Depression and experiencing WWII as a teen this walking talking treasure shares the what, whys and how the experience of the past can save the modern day prepper. Join in and learn firsthand what remembering the past and embracing the future can mean for you and the world… Celebrate Father’s Day and share history like you never have before; learn the realities of the past 80 plus years. What’s changed good or bad? Open your mind and perspectives! Listen to this show in player below!
On the Homestead Honey Hour TheMrsVolfie takes the helm in this episode of learning and sharing from mistakes as well as triumphs!
I have heard it said that there is livestock and there is dead stock, when we start homesteading and prepping we don’t have all the answers so we rely on the internet. We rely on what people tell us, farmers, breeders, and old timers who have been around the block and then some! But Guess what? These people are just human and they make mistakes, or maybe, they have never faced a situation you could face. Or, maybe they are selling you a line to make a buck. Whatever the case may be folks, putting people on pedestals can be dangerous. Many of us have blogs and YouTube channels, and we share our experience, our strengths and our hopes but that does NOT make us experts. All we can do is share what we learn, when we learn it, when we make a mistake admit it, and share what we learn from the experience.
If we OWN our mistakes…we can learn from them…and hopefully not make them again…Sharing our experiences with failure…is JUST as important as sharing our triumphs.
In our hurried lives, there never seems to be enough time or money for Prepping. Still, prepping is a very important part of our future and most of us realize the need to take care of ourselves rather than be dependent on others. Getting our whole family on board sounds easier than it is. Join Deb and a few guests this week, talking about three important topics:
1. Ideas parents use to teach their children without the fear
2. Finding the time and money to Prep
3. Using our preps now
This week on “Common Sense Prepping“, Deb and guests will be discussing some common sense ways we can prepare now. We will share a few simple ideas to get us on the road and stay on the road while we have the chance. Deb invites new Preppers to come on the show and share what concerns them. Deb also encourages more experienced Preppers to join in with their knowledge and experience.
Over the centuries, taking care of yourself and your family has fallen by the wayside to almost total dependence on others for our smallest of needs. Most people are totally unprepared for any type of emergency. Join us on our journey, to re-educate and re-gain our independence towards self-sufficiency. Together, we can decide what is important to us in a time of need, and what we can do beforehand to help ourselves out when the time comes.
This week, on “Common Sense Prepping” Deb and guests talked about some common sense ways we can prepare now before the SHTF, including a few simple remedies to some common ailments. Deb invites new Preppers to come on the show and share what concerns them. Deb also encourages more experienced Preppers to join in with their knowledge and experience.

Chris aka “RedHorse_Ronin had Todd Sepulveda on this airing of “Preppers Poitin Hour” and information was abundant. Todd, founder and operator of prepperwebsite.com has brought together and accumulated a wealth of information all in one place making it easy for preppers or anyone else that want answers to find them. In helping to set up this broadcast I knew Todd would be an excellent guest but had no idea as to what the listeners or myself was in for. The show was phenomenal.
The questions put forth by our host Chris were what anyone with a little thought would ask and some a few of us may not consider. Todd came back with his answers, thoughts, and opinions that were refreshing and informative. Thank you Todd for sharing with us your experience and knowledge in this excellent show.
