Our Team

Tamara White – Owner & Senior Editor

Tamara is a DIYer, thrifter, and avid gardener. Tamara enjoys learning new skills in the kitchen, playing in her garden, and experimenting and creating new things.

She resides in northern Georgia with her two kids and husband.

Tamara has been quoted or referenced in major online and print publications, including the Associated Press, MSN, Apartment Therapy, and more.

Tamara believes that no matter where you live, you can homestead. It’s a lifestyle – and there are levels to this lifestyle. And it is entirely possible with or without land. 

She believes anyone can take steps to be more self-sufficient and sustainable in their daily lives. This could mean getting creative by urban homesteading in your apartment, growing plants on your windowsill, or having chickens in your backyard.
