Take a tour of off-the-grid farm living

Written by 

A tour of an off-the-grid, sustainable farm and homestead in Macon County will be held on Saturday, Oct. 2.

Lara and Paul Chew are master improvisers. They’ve invented and built systems to bring water, heat and coolness, light and earth-friendly simplicity into their homestead life.

They will show the group how to bake in the mud oven, use the hand-build compost toilet and see how water creates electricity. Children are invited to help milk goats and feed the farm animals. This is an opportunity to learn how to apply some simple alternatives to our own properties and life styles. Bring your own favorite homemade dish to pass at lunch if you would like.

Meet at 9 a.m. at Cowee Elementary School to carpool to the farm in Otto. This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
