Today I’m going to share with you my top seven goto, internet resources for inspiration, education, and collaboration on the Traditional Catholic Homestead!
1) TraditionalCatholicPriest.com: Father Carota is fighting the good fight, bringing tradition back into our holy churches. He suffers greatly, but pushes on and is blessed mightily.
2) Charles Carroll Society: The Bard can be a little edgy at times, but he seems strong in his faith, and is walking a similar path. He covers a wide variety of topics from Traditional Catholicism, to politics, homesteading, prepping, and beyond.
3) New Catholic Land Movement: Kevin Ford introduced me to the idea of Distributism, along with the history of the Catholic Land Movement. He is an aspiring small farmer/homesteader and family man. I appreciate his honesty and candor of his successes and failures. He created a small online community with the associated forums alongside his main page.
4)The goofballs @ Permies.com: Permies is the largest online permaculture forum on the web, and my inspiration/introduction into the world of permaculture. The community there is massive and diverse, just pop in and ask anything someone will have an answer. The moderators on the site a great, strictly adhering to a policy of be nice or your gone!
5) Survival Podcast: Modern survivalism from Jack Spirko! Jack is an anarchist, and deist, so I don’t agree with him on those fronts, but he is highly knowledgeable, in everything from permaculture, to investing, and even ducks! He does his homework well. If he warns you of impending crisis you better listen. His subject matter is diverse and accurate.
6) St. Isidore Society community permaculture farms: Fine Catholic folks doing good work in the Denver, CO metro area. This is the first site I found of Catholics with boots on the ground applying permaculture and living strong Catholic values.
7) Finally I’m giving a nod to our friends over at Industrious Families: The site is just getting started, but I really like their premise of holiness emanating from a strong family bond. They are good family oriented folks with a staunch Catholic faith.
