    Hi everyone I am new to homesteading or as we call it in the UK smallholding. I am hoping to become more self-sufficient and a little more 'green' in the process. I want this process to be as frugal as possible and am looking to start my journey with a community of support behind me. We used to live in Wales, where we had space but very little actual land to do anything on, but we have moved to England now and are living in a suburban area but with a large backyard.
    We have a website documenting our progress and I am slowly filling it up with all of my homemade crafts and homegrown ideas! I would love to have the support of people with more experience and to share some of our trials and mistakes with you all. I hope that we can all inspire each other! I know that the next 12 months will be life changing for me and my family, so all help very welcome!

    Many thanks in advance and I am really glad to have been accepted into this forum.

    TMS, welcome to the site.
    We have a few discussions ongoing that include BREXIT and globalism in general. I'm curious what the average UK citizen feels about these subjects. Also, what is the web address for your web site?

    I think it is going to be interesting for me too, the US is so large with such a lot of different climates.

    Welcome Mini! I'm always interested in the point of view of folks from other countries. Many times they have a better way of doing things!

    Hello @The Mini Smallholder and :welcome: to the forum from Australia.

    We are moving to our own larger property in December from a smaller property rental but have been practicing being self sufficient for many years. You will learn a lot from here so feel free to just jump into the threads and start some of your own on subjects you want to learn about too.
