How to Live A Simple and Fulfilling Life with Nature

Prosperity Homestead is a resource for landowners seeking practical and ecological solutions. This community wants to increase food security, celebrate an outdoor lifestyle, and establish a family homestead worthy of generations.

We take a project-based approach to transform dreams into reality. With a newsletter, podcast, and members-only content, you get a professional-level focus to get better results. Projects focus on daily living using permaculture ethics, sound ecology, and sustainable living.

Because we are project-oriented, you get the benefit of real-world experience. Plus, access to advice and counsel from other experts. You'll find practical solutions that help you get more from your land.

This resource is NOT about cinematic videos with low content value. We are NOT about what is politically correct. You won't find any greenwashing. Get a common sense approach to land management, homesteading skills, and estate development.

You'll learn how to build community, increase property values, and elevate your family's lifestyle. Each resource here builds on conversations with thinkers about ecology, the environment, and conservation.

What Does Prosperity Homestead Do for The Community?

By partnering with local organic producers, artisans, and subject matter experts, Prosperity Homestead seeks to document regenerative best practices. (No classes are held in the City of Martinsville.)

Demonstrations include erosion control, rainwater capture, no-till gardening, growing mushrooms, and nursery management. A monthly newsletter shares lessons learned through our podcasts, courses, and publications.

Our mission statement is about the application of environmentally sustainable land management principles. These skills are not always welcome by the city administration and zoning officials. Read about those challenges as well.

The good news is the regional garden, native plant, and naturalist clubs are our greatest allies. Prosperity Homestead works with a network of permaculture consultants, foresters, professional engineers, and naturalists across Virginia and North Carolina.

Projects at Prosperity Homestead consult Virginia Tech, Ohio State University, the University of North Carolina, various agricultural extensions, and natural resources departments. If you have any questions about practical application, join our newsletter or contact us.
