It's an exciting time at Homestead Journal and Iron Bridge as we move to a new office and put together a new site with a new set of goals. Decorum suggests that I start by defining our purpose and explaining what this site is about and what you can hope to accomplish by spending part of your busy week with us.
Homestead Journal is here to help our community members live happier, healthier, more prosperous and fulfiiling lives while using less cash, less petroleum and, well, less stuff, by encouraging the developement of a robust home economy and a vibrant social network.We are here to provide you with the ideas and connections that you need to navigate the turbulent times in which we find ourselves. Our aim is to help make sense of the mess in which America and the world finds itself and to be here with calm, realistic, personal, family and community scaled solutions...you can't fix the world, but you can take charge of your own house and encourage your neighbors to do the same .
The site is also an opportunity to watch Homestead Journal grow from a blog to other media, to track our journey, both literally and figuratively, as we grow. We hope that you'll enjoy reading, listening and watching...Thanks for sharing part of your day with us.
