In This Podcast:
For years, Julia Hubler couldn’t find a garden planner that had it all. After running her family’s homestead of chickens, goats, and gardens, she put together a comprehensive garden planning guide and journal. Here, she paints a picture of life on her homestead. Listen in to learn why she added native trees back into her orchard, what it’s like raising chickens for meat, and how you can win a free copy of her e-book so you can start planning your best garden yet!
Listen in and learn about:
- How she got interested and learned to homestead
- A picture of her homestead
- Raising meat birds
- Eating seasonally from your yard
- Self-publishing an e-book
- The native trees that add nitrogen into our soil.
- Homesteading and permaculture
As well as:
Her failure – Not considering the water availability of the land when she was planting trees.
Her success – Adding in native trees like Mesquite and Palo Verde as nurse trees.
Her drive – Her faith.
Her advice – Try new things, experiment, and don’t be afraid to fail!
