Homesteading – Journey Back to Practical Skills



In bygone eras, generations thrived on the wisdom of their ancestors, growing up amidst the comforting presence of extended family on the homestead. Traditional skills were passed down with care, fostering self-sufficiency and resilience. However, in today’s fast-paced world, this connection has diminished, and many are unfamiliar with these invaluable abilities.

At our homesteading class, we aim to bridge this gap, reigniting the flame of self-sufficiency and practical knowledge. We understand the longing to reconnect with our roots and empower ourselves with essential skills that sustain both ourselves and the environment. Let us walk with you on this path, creating a sustainable future together.

Reconnecting with Practical Skills: As adults, it’s never too late to rediscover the joy of self-sufficiency. Our homesteading classes are a tribute to the love for practical expertise and a yearning to preserve these essential skills that have been overlooked in modern times. We invite you to take a step closer to your dream of a self-sufficient homestead and embark on a journey of learning and growth.

Unlock Your Self-Sufficient Potential: Curious about the skills needed to live your dream of a self-sufficient homestead? Our class will equip you with the tools and techniques required to cultivate independence. From making your own no-tox cleaning products to soap making, fermented drinks, infused oils to self-care products.  You’ll gain the confidence to embark on your journey with certainty.

Join us on this fulfilling quest to reclaim practical skills and embrace the beauty of self-sufficiency. Together, we will build a future grounded in sustainable living and profound harmony with nature.

Your workshop facilitator will be Doreen Jachmann a Permaculture, Horticultural Consultant at Bloomfield’s Homestead and President at Permaculture Connect Inc.
Bloomfield’s Homestead is a Land for Wildlife property in Jimboomba. The area, known to be in a “rain shadow”, receives a lot less average annual rainfall than the greater Brisbane region.
There is an abundance of native trees and shrubs now compared to the humble beginnings of March 2016. Different perennial growing systems, water harvesting earthworks, zero waste nursery/worm farm, a grey water garden, syntropics system, and wicking beds have been implemented. We also raise and harvest on-site our own ducks, geese, turkeys, chickens and pigs, and utilise hot and cold smokers. There are several European honeybee hives as well.
