Hollywood Getting into the Action [Video]

>> Sunday, January 31, 2010

I Just had to post this! These people have the public's ear, and its not for their exposure but the causes that they speak for! I am reasonably sure that folks like Leonardo, and Bob Redford have twice the fan base of our own president! so listen carefully. The video is very short but one we should all watch and PASS ON to friends and family. I will say the part about "countries that kill our soldiers" I'm not too crazy about.
Thanks!

Homesteaders Spring Time Holidays

>> Thursday, January 28, 2010





Hello everyone, Valentines Day and the spring holiday season is closing in fast, and the pace is picking up. In case you missed it, the US (and the rest of the world for that matter)is in a little bit of economic recession right now so this holiday season could be a lean one for most people.

Here at NY Homesteaders homestead we will be making many of our own gifts as we do every year, (I have given my mom a home made gift almost every year since kindergarten) to offset the cost of the holidays.

OK OK, I know what your thinking,

Proposed Bill Would Allow Communities to Share Solar Benefits
Being able to take advantage of solar incentives for could be a huge boon to community groups of all kinds, from churches to schools to gardening clubs and could be a great model to other states where urban dwellers lack rooftops of their own.

Millions of Old Tires Spark Recycling Frenzy

Greetings one and all--
We here at NY Homesteader think this will be of interest to you:
Millions of Old Tires Spark Recycling Frenzy

It’s like finding money on the street: the average tire contains the same energy as seven gallons of oil, and it has a heat content up to 16% higher than coal. That’s one reason why tire recycling is starting to catch on in a big way.

Tiny North Carolina Utility Tries "Best Practices" Solar Farming

Tiny North Carolina Utility Tries Best Practices Solar Farming
Here's a charming and sustainable way to keep the grass trimmed beneath solar arrays. Sheep nibble the grass down to a manageable level. This relatively small North Carolina installation is kept trim without fossil-fuels in what is increasingly becoming a "best practice" in landscaping circles - by sheep.

What in the heck is a Bird Sandwich? Well the answer to that question is pretty simple, but first I have to digress a bit and share this little story. A few days ago during the Holiday week between Christmas and New Years Day, We were looking for a quick project we could do and I came up with bird sandwiches. So I asked my son and daughter (7 yr old twins) If they wanted to make a bird sandwich with daddy and my daughters response was,

The Start of a New Decade

>> Friday, January 1, 2010




Just a quick post on the start of a new decade.

I have been a homesteader most of my life and learned most of my skills as a homesteader from my grandparents. Since they were young adults during the great depression they were forced into frugality (my grandpa saved everything) just as we are being pushed in that direction as well, only in a different era or context if you will. We must change and
