Ready to expand your horizons and explore the  self-sufficient domesteading lifestyle? If you haven’t already, you may want to go back and read Part One,  Domesteading – Settling into a New Eco Lifestyle (Part 1).

Domesteading: Building a Sustainable Lifestyle During Times of Extremes

When Nature’s extremes or some other unpredictable calamity befall us, the Self-Sufficient Lifestyle empowers us to triumph over life-altering events. Urban Domesteading is all about becoming self-sufficient by acquiring necessary skills and implementing sustainable practices that provide ourselves and our loved ones with the peace of mind to thrive, not just survive. 

Domes survive wildfire

Earth is a planet in upheaval.” ― the Guardian

Climate change has many reputable scientists concerned about the survival of the human species on the surface of the planet… and if you know where to look, there’s sufficient evidence to support this unsettling news. According to a recent article in the Guardian, “the World Bank warns that climate change is causing the relocation of millions of people worldwide.”

As a leading researcher on the science of solar activity cycles and their impacts on climate change and associated catastrophic geophysical events (including earthquakes, tsunamis and volcanic eruptions), Dr. Casey is well-qualified to lay out the case for why we have entered one of the most turbulent cycles on Earth. For an in-depth interview, see the “Grand Solar Minimum” video.

Don’t Wait Until Disaster Strikes to Begin Your Urban Domesteading Journey
Although a self-sufficient lifestyle isn’t possible for everyone, domesteading in a Dome Home becomes an ecoliving alt-shelter solution during these cyclic times of upheaval on planet Earth. The good news is that you don’t have go to Timbuktu (yes, it exists) to be a Domesteader. Domesteading can be incorporated into your modern urban lifestyle, enhancing any backyard landscape and even serving as a lovely garden dome with multiple uses.

Be Innovative Be Resourceful

1) Extend Your Living Space… For added space, how about digging down and building a sub-level Kiva Room or an upper level Loft? A below ground room can be utilized as cold-storage for emergency food supplies. Your upstairs loft can serve as a studio, guest quarters or an off-grid vacation rental.

2) Join the REAL FOOD Revolution… Elon Musk’s younger brother, Kimbal Musk, is the co-founder of ‘The Kitchen’ (now Big Green), a growing family of Learning Gardens and Farm-to-table restaurants that source directly from urban farmers, stimulating the local farm economy. His personal mission is to get communities rapidly thriving by improving every part of the food culture. Your geodesic Dome Home can double-up as a cozy greenhouse structure that you and your family can take refuge in, should the need arise.  As an urban domesteader, you, too, can join the Real Food movement and build a Learning Garden in your community.
