I have been reading so many post about being or becoming self-sufficient. I was just wondering.... What does being self sufficient mean to you?? I bet we have several different ways of looking at it.... Just curious on what everyones thoughts are??? Does self sufficient mean to be totally self reliant or just raising your on food?? We have a village starting in our area.... They will be living on several acres and farming etc. but some will have jobs away from the village, will they be self sufficient??.....I think yes..
