We are Jerry & Joanna and we are very happy you visited our blog!
We are a couple in its early thirties, we live in Athens, Greece and we both have good 9-5 jobs. We were raised in the city and we lead a pretty conventional life. For a while now we have thought about our lifestyle and how we would ideally like to live in the future. We realized that our idea of quality in life has changed since we were younger. We have grown tired of fast city living. Suddenly, we became interested in gardening, started to grow some fresh herbs and vegetables in pots, crafting our own home-made products, free of chemicals and preservatives and wondering how living in the country would be.
Our quest begins with just one step, which is the most important, the decision that we want to live a simple, more self-sufficient, fulfilling life in the country, growing our own food, finding satisfaction from the work of our hands, living with less.
So, here we are dreaming about modern homesteading. We decided to start this blog with the hope that it will document our quest out of the city and into the country. For now, we are trying suburban homesteading in an attempt to gain control over some of the necessities in our lives. During this quest, we will do our research, explore ideas, practice, attend self-sufficiency workshops and read several books. This blog will document our projects, our mistakes and successes, our progress and thoughts on modern homesteading. Here we will gather and share all this knowledge, so that when we will be able to move to our own homestead we will be as ready as possible. We know we have a lot of road ahead of us, but we believe it will be a rewarding and fun road as well.
We are very happy that you visited us. If you are a beginner like us, we hope we can offer some knowledge for you. If, on the other hand, you are an experienced homesteader we hope you can share your knowledge with us.
