big plans

Chic Sustainability has moved to its new and improved location- chicsusatianbilty.com!
we have big plans. lots of big plans. will we do everything we list here? probably not. something may end up too hard, somethings may end up unnecessary. they are just plans.
short term: starting in the next weeks
  • build a small green house
  • start herb garden
  • plant large veggie garden
  • build chicken coup
  • start using only our eggs
  • purchase and raise meat chickens
  • get serious about composting
  • find and use local Dairy source
  • make butter
  • switch to homemade bread
  • switch to natural homemade cleansers
near-ish future: in the next months
  • become totally independent of store bought meat (buy from local butcher or family)
  • build pig pin
  • purchase a goat for milk
  • learn to “put up” (canning, freezing, drying, ect.)
  • try to make cheeses
  • make homemade soda syrups for SodaStream
  • homemade soap
long term: in the coming years
  • grow grains for bread and beer
  • grow potatoes and corn al though they are easy they are also very cheap and accessible so no need to grow them
  • plant berry bushes
  • plant fruit trees
  • learn to grow mushrooms
  • learn to cultivate yeast
  • solar panels for new house water pump and water heater
  • raise our own calf, pig, occasional lamb

we have already started on some of these things. next post will be about the sustainable things we already do.
