Have you felt it? Something is rippling through humanity at this moment. It's a stirring... a longing... a remembering. A sense that we are more capable than we’ve been led to believe. We want to feel alive, not sedated.. but we've lost our way. We've traded a life intertwined with nature for asphalt and artificial lights. We've swapped natural movement for a sedentary existence. We've given up food from the earth in favor of food from the factory. We've sacrificed our traditional skillsets for apps and gadgets. But while our overdose on modernity may have made us sick, there is an antidote. Join best-selling author and mentor, Jill Winger, each week as she digs into a different facet of the old-fashioned on purpose lifestyle.

Heelan Homestead ,

Raised Bed Garden

I found this episode so useful and it really gave me the encouragement I needed to start my raised bed garden.
I’m completely in love with Jill’s podcasts ... They are full of information, but at the same time very easy to listen to, full of personal homesteading experiences. I’m new to homesteading, also having grown up in a town. I’m sure you’ll enjoy this series as much as I do. Highly recommended.

Kalecorina ,

At last!

I’ve been waiting for this. Love your raw honesty about your life and following your passion. You are such an inspiration and motivational. You are living proof that hard work and dirty hands brings so much satisfaction. I’m off to listen to canning jam without all the sugar before I pick another basket load of damson plums in the morning. Fab podcast, thank you!
