I’m Jennifer Houghton. At the age of 46 I
moved out of the suburbs onto an acre of land in the British Columbia
mountains. I'm learning to be
self-sufficient, grow my own food, and live amongst the pines.
Some might say I’m obsessed with
frugality and living green. I would say I have a mania for it. Call me
a Cheapskate Tree Hugger and I’ll thank yee for it.
I still have alot to learn about living
off the land. Along the way I’ll hobnob with experienced homesteaders,
farmers, carpenters, plumbers, lumberjacks, herbalists, crafters, and
cooks and share the learning with you.
My background includes Landscape
Gardening, teaching yoga and fitness, working at a health food store,
eating vegan, a lifetime of tinkering with tools, years of fiddling with
Photoshop, a curiosity about alternative building methods, a love of
furry creatures, and lots and lots of nature walks.
I hope to meet kindred
spirits seeking something more meaningful, a sweeter relationship with
the earth, and perma-dirty fingernails.
