My name is Mindy Wood, Founder of Our Inspired Roots.
I began learning about homesteading over a decade ago when I was a young woman trying to find my place in the world.
I knew that the world of 9 to 5 jobs, sending my kids off to daycare, and living for the weekends wasn’t for me. But I wasn’t sure yet if it was possible to live any other way.
So, I began learning self-reliance skills like growing food, making home remedies, making things from scratch, and blogging about it.
It turned out that there were lots of other women just like me who wanted to stop living an inauthentic life and begin cultivating the traditional skills of our ancestors.
I have spent the last decade learning (and teaching) homesteading skills in a variety of places (on acreage, in the suburbs, and in an apartment!).
If you want to learn how to grow your own food and medicine so you can care for your family’s health and well-being, you’re in the right place.
Welcome! I’m so glad you’re here :)
