Buck Mountain Experimental Station

From 2006-2012 I was the owner and director of Buck Mountain Experimental Station, a 20-acre off-the-grid homestead in Northern California.  BMES was the main homestead featured in the bulk of my How-to Homestead series.  In addition to being the main production site for my homesteading projects and films, BMES also hosted an artist in residency program, university classes, and WWOOFers (Willing Workers on Organic Farms) from around the world.  Buck Mountain Experimental Station was a hub of off-the-grid creativity.
