Hello there! I’m the Autumn Rose, but everyone calls me Autumn. You can too!
I’m an old fashioned girl who savors the simple cottage life! I love gardening, overwintering home-grown food in my cold room, raising our own meat and living life alongside other folks. Nutritious food has always been important to me, but even more so since I contracted Lyme disease. Chronic illness swept me into the health world and there I’ve stayed! Almost everything I do (and blog about) has its roots in the kitchen and nutrition!
I’m all about living life on the land, not just because I crave the lifestyle, but because I see and experience the difference good food makes, the energy and vitality it gives to a body with a weakened immune system. I’ve also learned that community homesteading is the best option for this low energy gal! The impossible becomes possible with the help of others. How I love this aspect of the natural life!
At its heart, this blog exists for those who want a lifestyle and dietary change. Too often we recognize our need after damage has been done. I believe the key to maintaining is found in healthy living. For me, that means returning to the land!
I also believe this blog will be applicable to anyone who wishes to move toward wholesome living. I do believe a change in diet and lifestyle can significantly reduce the issues so many of us battle on a regular basis. Stress, processed foods, lack of exercise and the pursuit of money has a negative effect on most of us!
Not everyone is wired for country living. I understand that! You don’t have to wear overalls and tote a pitchfork to experience change. Learning to cook and prepare meals, purchasing produce from farmer’s markets, joining a farm share or shopping the “organic” section of your local supermarket are viable options! A dietary change is something anyone can do! Join me and let’s do it together!
