At the Happy Homesteader we aim to promote simple living, conservation, reuse, and sustainability all with do-it-yourself arts and crafts ingenuity to live more in harmony with the earth and mankind.
We fully understand that most of our readers are not going to run off to the country and build a shack in the woods with no running water or electricity. That is why we are committed to giving our readers helpful information on everything from cooking to making art that is not only good for you, but fun to do!
We don’t think you should have to go to the ends of the earth, or spend a fortune to find the materials or ingredients you need for the projects we feature. We encourage you to use things you already have, have acquired second hand or can find at your local store.
Most importantly, we want to build a community by teaching our readers that small steps can lead to big changes. Each time you reuse an item, make something yourself or get the people in your neighborhood involved, you are changing the world.
