Hello hello and welcome to the Dennis Alan Podcast. The story of a City Boy who gave it all up to find happiness, financial freedom and a better way to live life. Together we can learn and accomplish anything.

Today is Friday, February 8th 2019 and we will be talking about why I bought about 30 acres and what are the plans for my homestead. I give my explanation as to what a “homestead” is and my definition of “off grid” means.

We discuss how I am going to use solar and wind to provide my off grid power. The plan to repair and build the land so that it will grow food, medicine and give me the financial freedom needed for a better lifestyle.

Hello Homesteaders!



SUBSCRIBE here 🙂 please

Welcome to my YouTube Channel. I will be documenting my change of life by going from a corporate slave city boy to a self sufficient land owner in Central PA. I will be trying to live as much as I can off the grid by building eco friendly means of living and feeding myself via the sustainable means of Permaculture. I am no expert and will be learning as I go alone. I am looking forward to learn from you as much as you may learn something from me. I have a PDC from Geoff Lawton and one from Jack Spirko from TSPC.

Sit back and enjoy the ride
