Brianna Storch and her husband are busy on their Northern California Homestead.
With their own careers, a 4-year-old son, a cat, two dogs, nine chickens and 2.5 acres, thereâ€™s no lack of a checklist.
Brianna’s homestead sits on 2.5 acres.
But with all those things comes a bounty of experience, and thatâ€™s why weâ€™re excited to have Brianna Storch as our homesteading affiliate hereÂ on the #SafetyTeamÂ so she can teach us all to live a little more â€œcrunchy.â€
“Being crunchy means living as eco-friendly as possibly, which I provide examples of how to do so while on a budget,” says Brianna, whose blogÂ Breezy LivingÂ has become a comical account of her attempts to “stay classy in an otherwise dusty environment.”
She started her blog after her son was born as an outlet for her thoughts and as a â€œbusy mom trying to avoid the harmfulÂ chemicals and pesticidesÂ in commercially grown food.â€
Now, Brianna hasÂ chickens for eggs, lots of space for gardens, fruit trees, and a growing family that she supports using it all.
But is going crunchy for everyone?
â€œRecycling,Â shopping at farmers markets, buying local eggs, having a raised garden bed, or even an herb garden by a window are just a few things that any person can do to achieve a greener way of living,â€ says Brianna. â€œIt’s all about what you can make out of your own surroundings.â€
We love that attitude! Weâ€™re really excited to share content with Brianna and to seeÂ all the great tipsÂ she can give us on living green and homesteading in our own backyards.
â€œI have always felt that what we take from the Earth, we should try to give back,â€ says Brianna. â€œYou don’t have to know a whole lot about farming or gardening, or have a lot of money either; all that is needed is a little bit of time, patience, and a realistic goal.â€
