This is my story of trying to make a rural property into a small farm…. grow and preserve some of our own food, care for some animals, reconnect with the earth, explore herbal and natural health and well-being and enjoy the fresh country air and sunshine.
My letterboxing handle is Water Lily. Thus…. homesteadingwithwaterlily. My family (husband and 16yo son) and I live on an acreage, about 1 1/4 hours NW of Calgary. I work for the Alberta Camping Association as their Executive Director. In my spare time, I letterbox (less recently), garden and fuss with chickens.
