What Does Off Grid Mean?

Off grid, in our case, is not simply a "homestead". Off grid means we're producing our own power from solar and wind, we have a private well and septic system. We grow as much of our own food as possible in our greenhouses and garden and we also have chickens. Ours is not a huge operation, but it works for the two of us.

Who Are We?

I'm Greta, an artist and technical writer with a passion for baking and gardening. John, my husband, trained as a millwright and worked as a Maintenance Superintendent for over 20 years. We're both adventurous, handy and enjoy problem solving.

Living off grid, for us, means enjoying a rich quality of life that includes fresh food, clean air, going to bed happily tired and, hopefully, a little wiser after having learned something that day.

Thanks for visiting!
