10 Best Crops for Your Victory Garden
Anna Sakawsky is a former city girl turned modern homesteader who lives with her husband, their four-year-old daughter, two cats, two pet rabbits and six chickens on a ¼-acre on the edge of the forest in the beautiful Comox Valley on Vancouver Island, BC. Here they produce and preserve hundreds of pounds of their own food every year and strive to live a more self-reliant lifestyle in everything that they do.
Anna is the creator of The House & Homestead, a blog about real food, natural living and all things related to homesteading, self-reliance and getting back to a simpler, more sustainable way of life.
She’s also the writer, editor and publisher of the free monthly online magazine, Modern Homesteading Magazine, where she gets to combine her background in journalism and her childhood dream of being a magazine editor with her passion for homesteading and sustainable living and share them with the world.
When she’s not working on the blog or the magazine, she likes to spend her days digging in the dirt, creating in the kitchen and living a simpler, slower, more intentional life close to the land that provides for her and her family. She believes everything is better when it’s homemade from scratch, and she’s passionate about helping others learn to grow, cook and preserve their own food, create their own natural medicine and personal care products and live more sustainable, self-sufficient lives in the process.
