Imagine a Homestead Where Nature Works in Harmony, Providing an Abundance of Food and Resources!

Ready to Dive into Permaculture? Join Our Crash Course and Discover the Power of Regenerative Design for Your Homestead!




Permaculture basics and application at your fingertips


Would you like to grow more food while improving the health of your soil?

Would you like to improve the sustainability of your land but don’t know where to start?

I know that it might sound like a contradiction to grow your own food while improving your soil and doing it in less time with less energy.

Instead of working with nature to harvest nature’s abundance, we have tried to dominate using our modern technology. But nature wants to thrive, and your self-sufficient garden dreams can become a reality.

It is totally possible to bring back a healthy, productive balance.

By the end of our crash course, you’ll have practical tips to get you started on your own land. It doesn’t matter where you are: if you have some sunlight, some water, and a little soil, then you too can learn about and apply the principals of permaculture.


What you'll learn in this Crash Course:

‣ What Permaculture is

‣ The 3 main ethics of permaculture and how to apply them

‣ The 12 basic design principals of permaculture and how to implement them

‣ 4 actionable steps to take today

‣ Plus, 6 additional tips to improve your garden this season 




Meet Homesteading Family


We’re Carolyn and Josh Thomas!  We live on 40 acres in Idaho with our 11 children where we grow, preserve, and prepare most of our own food right on our property. 

As young parents with a quickly growing family and a desire to feed them healthy, whole foods (even on a tight budget) we knew very quickly that we were going to have to figure out how to grow and cook it ourselves... good food was just too expensive!

But we didn’t have anyone around us that we could ask about how to make this homesteading thing work. We felt completely alone and scrambling for answers while dealing with the demands of life.

We didn’t want others to have to go through the same struggles we experienced, so we created Homesteading Family.

As the years have passed we have had an opportunity to speak into the lives of more and more families… And while we are so blessed to get to help others, we also know that this is just the beginning… and now it is time to take the next step.

We hope you join us and can’t wait to see how your homestead grows.


Permaculture is the most practical way of working with nature rather than against it.

Together, we will look at the way nature is made, exists, and functions and how we can apply those systems to our own spaces and environments.

Using permaculture, we benefit not only ourselves but also nature itself, which makes for a productive, healthy system.

When we work with the created order, we thrive and nature thrives!
