Snailshell Thicket is 1.25 acres in central North Carolina. USDA Hardiness Zone: 7a.
It is not a farm because we don’t produce anything for sale, and little to speak of for sharing.
It is not a homestead because we don’t kid ourselves we will ever approach any semblance of self-sufficiency. Full time jobs that pay bills take priority while we have them.
We like native plants, organic practices, and the ideals of permaculture, but are not purists about anything.
