Imagine if you could have a thriving garden supplying you with fresh organic produce and you knew exactly how to make it happen.

Imagine if you could watch your chickens peck and scratch from the kitchen window and enjoy pasture-raised eggs for breakfast.

Imagine if you had the confidence to keep bees and you could harvest honey and store this healing superfood in your pantry.

Friends started asking me for help and I knew they needed the same support I had received from my country friend. That’s when I decided to create a mentorship program that would give them exactly what they needed without the extra fluff, and the one-on-one help they needed to answer their questions and share success. 

Gardening has an average of 1:7 ROI. For every $10 spent in home gardening, the average garden produces $75 worth of food.

Hey there, I’m Lana!

Most days you can find me in the garden, in the goat pen or in the university classroom teaching business courses. We are approaching 20 years on our small homestead. We live just inside the city limits of Kansas City on 4 acres where we raise a flourishing garden, chickens, bees, turkeys, goats, and sheep. My fireman husband is full of adventure and always willing to help with a DIY project, add a new garden or build a greenhouse out of reclaimed materials. We’ve learned a lot over the years from trial and error and are excited to share our knowledge with you.  Slow and simple living is hard work. We run on God’s grace, strong coffee & lots of KC BBQ. We are honored to have you here!
