Welcome to the Dirt Simple Blog

Dirt Simple is a new feature here at BeLocal. It’s a forum in which I’ll provide easy ways you can pursue a more sustainable, self-reliant, and local life style – even if you don’t have a lot of time to do it.

I’ll share simple and effective tips on growing & preserving more of your own food, maintaining and extending the life of your home and possessions, engaging with your community, and building useful skills. All while saving time, energy, and money.

Sound good? Then come back daily for new short-cuts, tools, hacks, and advice on moving toward a resilient future, without turning your life upside-down.
