How To Homestead When You’re Flat Broke

There’s a misconception among many people that it takes a lot of money to homestead. While it is impossible to homestead for free, it is still possible to homestead when you’re essentially flat broke.

This week’s guest on Off The Grid Radio tells us how to do just that. Her name is Kendra Lynne, and when she and her family moved to a homestead in the South several years ago, they were barely “getting by.”

Yet through resourcefulness and creativity, she learned how not only to make ends meet each month but also how to tackle homestead projects that she otherwise wouldn’t have had the money to do. Kendra has since launched a popular blog dedicated to sharing her homestead how-to stories.

Kendra tells us:

  • How to get livestock for free – including chickens, guineas, turkeys, rabbits and goats.
  • Which items are needed to make a $5 greenhouse and a free tomato cage.
  • What she considers to be the “four must-haves” for beginning a homestead when you have little money.
  • How to find free building materials and free plants.
  • Why waiting patiently for cheap or free items, instead of rushing out and buying, often is the best option.

Kendra’s story is one that will encourage many off-gridders and homesteaders. Years ago she was a California “city girl” who knew nothing about country life. But today she is a rural homestead mom who has no regrets – and is wanting to help others.

Another victory in the fight for food freedom

The Welsh Deputy Minister for Farming and Food, Rebecca Evans, has announced that the country will take advantage of new EU rules allowing countries to opt out of growing EU-authorized GM crops. Yep – Wales is moving forward with a complete ban on biotech’s seed! [1]

Evans says that the nation plans to ban GM corn as well as 7 other GM crops authorized by the EU. She states:

“These new rules proposed by the European Commission provide Wales with the necessary tools to maintain our cautionary approach by allowing us to control the future cultivation of GM crops in Wales. It will allow us to protect the significant investment we have made in our organic sector and safeguard the agricultural land in Wales that is managed under voluntary agri-environment schemes.” Continue reading Wales Announces Complete Ban on GMOs with 15 other EU Countries

Trans-Pacific Partnership Deal Reached

Next: Obama will try to get the corporatist control plan through Congress

The corporatists have agreed on the details of the Trans-Pacific Partnership.

If ultimately approved by Congress — and this is less than certain — the TPP will expand the North American Free Trade Agreement into Japan, Australia, Chile, Peru and several southeast Asian nations.

Obama is a keen advocate of the “free trade” deal, but has faced staunch opposition from the left side of his party, notably trade unions and environmentalists.

Republican presidential candidates, including frontrunner Donald Trump, also oppose the deal and passage by Congress is less than certain.

FT reports:

Only a handful of Democrats support Mr. Obama’s trade policy, and Republican support is unpredictable in the 2016 election year, depending on the stance of presidential candidates and new leadership in the House. As it is, the deal can’t go to a vote before Congress until early next year.

The odds of passage in Congress will hinge in large part on the final language in a number of provisions, ranging from the strengthening of rights for labor unions to whether U.S. cigarette companies will face special limitations within TPP countries.

If passed the deal will allow corporate tribunals to overrule Congress and violate the national sovereignty of the United States. The process will be authoritarian and not have an appeal process or exit provisions.

“Packaged as a gift to the American people that will renew industry and make us more competitive, the Trans-Pacific Partnership is a Trojan horse,” Zero Hedge noted on Monday. “It’s a coup by multinational corporations who want global subservience to their agenda. Buyer beware. Citizens beware.”

If enacted the TPP will ultimately reduce America to third world status.

The global elite and their corporatist partners are determined to impoverish humanity, consolidate wealth and power and reinvent and modernize the feudal system of the Middle Ages.

TPP is their weapon of choice.
