Main content of the show

I’m a husband to my wife Mary for 30 years, I have 3 adult daughters, and 3 grandkids that I feel as though I would have never met if it wasn’t for the homesteading lifestyle.

In 2012 at the age of 39 I was diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer caused by a lifestyle of poor eating of fast food daily for many years while working as a truck driver. I went against doctor’s advice for the treatment and decided to make radical changes to my life with exercise and diet by growing most of my own food.

I have built a productive urban homestead over the last few years that provides an abundance of meat, vegetables, and fruit on less than a quarter acre.

I was inspired to help others have better health and a happier life through homesteading so for a few years I have hosted The Modern Homesteading Podcast and blog at RedemptionPermaculture.com
