We are two of the "back to the land people" from the late 1970’s. We have been living off the grid for the last 40 years and we've enjoyed every bit of it.
Now that we are both in our 60’s, we decided to downsize everything. We took all that we’ve learned during the last couple of decades and created our paradise retreat with one thing in mind: to make a self-sustaining, but low maintenance homestead that doesn’t need much work or expense.
We’ve created what may well be the most comprehensive, step-by-step system to transform a regular homeowner or apartment dweller into an independent, self-sufficient homesteader.
Then we go into minute details for each section.
We can also filter and drink it.
I’m not talking about folk remedies here, I’m talking about real plants that we found out over the last 4 decades that are very effective, and not something that you read on the internet.
When the plane took off from our homestead in Northern Saskatchewan and became a spec in the sky, the closest pharmacy was 100 miles away with no roads to get there. We would place our lives in the hands of these 7 plants and I think they should be in the backyards of every American concerned about their health.
For the last 40 years, a wire from the power grid has never been connected to a home in which we’ve lived.
Also their appetite for mosquitoes certainly makes a backyard more comfortable.
From full sized, and under the house root cellars to small barrel or trash can root cellars, there’s surely something here for you.
We’ve tried a lot of things over the years: we dug wells, had a well drilled, pumped water from a lake and set up shallow and deep well hand pumps for water.
This system heats the water whenever we cook or heat the house, so we don't pay extra to get hot water and neither should you.
We’ll also show you some upgrades you can add such as installing a window or vents that open into the greenhouse, so that whenever you ventilate the house in the winter, warm air goes into the greenhouse. In the spring and autumn, it’s the other way around, letting the warm air from the greenhouse flow and heat the house.
Using a cold frame in our Saskatchewan self-sustaining greenhouse, we were able to grow lettuce while two feet of snow were still on the ground. But even this is nothing compared to the ultimate upgrade you can bring to the greenhouse. We’re talking geothermal, using earth’s stored heat to our advantage. That’s because 10 feet below ground, the temperature is always stable at around 55 degrees, summer or winter, Texas or Maine. The way you can harness this stable underground temperature is to circulate the air from the greenhouse through underground loop pipes until it warms to almost 55 degrees. The only energy spent is with a very small fan that circulates the air through the tubes.
These plants can be your “secret weapon” in turning a steady profit year after year without much of an effort. And if, just like us, you won’t have a big pension or you’re living on a fixed income, this can be your ticket to a stress-free retirement
There’s not much bending in these gardens.
You will find around 100 tips and secrets scattered across the whole book, to save money on electricity, on food, on home repairs, on water, on tools, on house taxes, on heating… that you can begin implementing in your house right now and start saving a big part of the money you’re paying each month to big corporations.
When you water the plants or when it rains, both the water and the compost nutrients you place in the tower will flow outwards creating living soil thus feeding the plants. That’s exactly the kind of soil you need for record breaking harvests.
You’ll find a lot of backyard projects that may find their way into your future homestead such as: chicken coop, hoop tunnels, walipini, trellises, raised beds, hay and strawbale gardens, container gardening, windowsill gardening, and a lot more.
For example, one of the tricks we’ve learned before butchering is the night before to withhold all food from our chickens. There’s no need to waste the feed and we want to clean out their digestive systems. Allow them plenty of water though. This will make the whole process a lot easier.
The orchard will provide you with most of the fruits you need and will probably do so for your kids and family long after you move to a better place.
You’ll also discover the ingenious “curing” trick that can preserve your vegetables texture and flavor before placing them in the freezer.
We had no other option. In the long winters of Saskatchewan, we had nowhere to go to buy groceries and supplies. If we didn’t preserve the things we produced, we wouldn’t have thrived there.
You will not be troubled with what happens to the world around you, because everything you need is where is should be: on your property!
The growth rates are astonishing. And you can always have both juicy vegetables and fresh fish a plenty.
So, if you choose to become independent and get the Self-Sufficient Backyard right now, you’ll also get these three exclusive bonuses that would normally cost $27 each, free of charge.
For us it’s all of the above. But for you, even if it’s just one of them, we hope it’s still worth a lot more than we’ve priced it.
As you can see, we're in our 60's and just 3 years ago we started our third homestead. So, we really mean it when we say that what we’re going to show you will not need hard work. So, it doesn’t matter if you’re a senior or have back problems. We will compensate the work with the wisdom we’ve gathered during these 40 years.
Becoming a bit more self-sufficient should be done in stages. It doesn’t matter if you dedicate one hour a week or one hour a day, the final result is the same. Just by getting our program you’ve taken the first big steps towards self-reliance!
You don’t need too much land either. Our program makes a small backyard go a loooong way. People living in suburbia should know that we made this program thinking about them too. The quarter acre illustration is down sizable to whatever size your backyard is. Of course, you will not be able to be self-sufficient on 200 square feet, but you can surely use them to their full potential with our program.
For the last 40 years we’ve been living the old ways of our grandparents, but without sacrificing any of the modern comforts of today. We’re out in the boonies, but we have internet access, satellite TV, modern composting toilet, a sewer system, and … we are NOT rich… so we did this with very little money.
As long as you have the desire, you do not need any special skills or knowledge. We will provide that. You will learn as you go.
“The Self-Sufficient Backyard” is our life and everything we’ve personally gone through, so we're happy to stand behind it 100%. You have 60 full days to go through our program and if there’s anything you don’t like about it, Johanna and I will be more than happy to refund your purchase in full.
