The Holistic Homestead is a grassroots organization dedicated to education, outreach and preservation in the rural mountain communities in the Colorado Rockies.

Who does the Holistic Homestead serve?

Outreach: donations of goods and services to families in need, hosting wildcrafting and county road clean-up events; connecting families with local resources to medical supplies and holistic healers (herbalism, homeopathy, acupuncture, massage therapy, etc) for no cost, sliding scale fee or barter. Support of local small businesses.
  3. Preservation: building awareness for responsible mountain living, advocating environmental leadership and ethics, “leave no trace”, as well as historical building and land preservation activities.

    • Hi Carl!

      It was so lovely to connect with you again, and I can’t wait to re-up my WFR (& WEMT?) at your upcoming classes in Boulder! Feature articles are forthcoming, until then I would love for my readers to browse your website and sign up to learn about basic self-sufficiency and first aid!
