SAM AND ONION
I’m Sam Jones, and I’m making an effort to craft and live a simple, sustainable life in my little corner of the world here in Harmony, TN. Yes, I really live in Harmony, with my husband and my dog. I am deeply concerned about the economy, Peak Oil and climate change, along with a dozen other major issues of our time, but I’m learning to respond to these challenges by TRANSITIONING to a lifestyle based on local resilience, reducing my energy needs, developing useful skills, and taking charge of my own health.
I was raised in the Deep South and learned a thing or two there about growing food and living frugally, both skills that have helped me immensely with raising my own 4 daughters. I don’t pretend to have all the answers, but I am here to help people learn to live well in these difficult and life changing times.
I’ll be writing about growing community and growing food, keeping backyard chickens and bees, cooking from scratch, preserving food, my plant based diet, reusing, recycling and reducing what I need to live well. For me, it’s all about choices. But my journey to live well on less will never be over, as I’m always learning new ways to do so. Here’s the thing: Living this way has empowered me like nothing else every has! Join me as I ‘take a trip and never leave the farm’. (By the way, that’s just a saying I heard back in the 70′s from Jerry Garcia). I don’t live on a farm and my blog will be ideas that anyone can copy regardless of where you live.
