Announcing a New Blog Category: Cultivate Community

Posted by on Jul 10, 2014 in Cultivate Community | 2 comments

This Sunday, July 13, 2014, we are launching a new category on the blog called Cultivate Community. We are excited about this opportunity to share the wisdom of our community through guest posts. Check the blog this Sunday to meet our first super-inspiring guest. If you’d like to guest post or are just curious about this new blog category, read on.

Our community inspires us. Once inspired, we turn to our community to learn. Collectively, our wisdom grows as we come together to share what we know, what we have, and what we grow. This homesteading life would be missing the most important ingredient if we didn’t have community.

We look forward to sharing the wisdom of our community–a community made up of not only our neighbors in our dirt-and-dig world, but also our friends who share with us online. This movement toward simple and sustainable living is happening around the world, and we are grateful for the opportunity to share our little corner of it. We’d like to open this corner for you to share your inspiring lives and wisdom.

If you would like to write about and share your wisdom/inspiration in the areas of tiny house living, simple living, owner-building, gardening, permaculture, homesteading, salvaging, re-purposing, debt-free living, mortgage-free living, community, sense of place, creative lifestyles, living life on your own terms, living a balanced life, slow living, etc., we’d like to hear from you!

Please send a synopsis of your idea and a link or two to your previous work using the contact form above. I will get back to you as quickly as possible.

Thanks for being awesome.

After helping over 250 people get started on the path to mortgage-freedom, we've learned a lot more about what it takes, the pitfalls, the tricks and triumphs of living a zero-debt life of intention. We're taking what we've learned and creating a whole new series of courses to help even more of you reach your dreams. Sign up for our newsletter to get first dibs on the limited seats in our new course.


  1. What a great topic!!! Couldn’t agree more. No one can live small alone. It takes love, work, information, commitment, play, sharing, commiserating, and so much more from various outside sources. Thank goodness for all those!

    We’ve just arrived back in the USA today from our attempt to create a life in New Zealand that just didn’t work for us. Once we make it home to the thriving, community-oriented town of Flagstaff, Arizona, I just can’t wait to reconnect to the community, plug in and find that balance between shared actions and quiet moments alone or in nature. That balance is the key to my own happiness (and I suspect many others too).

    As ever, grateful that you are out there and sharing your journey.

    With love and light,

    • Thanks, Wynne! I’m looking forward to this ride.

      I’m so glad you made it back to the States safely, and I know you are gonna plug right in. I’m happy for you! Thanks for sharing with us, and maybe you’ll want to write a guest post about your experience re-assimilating into the Flagstaff community. Would be an interesting perspective!
