PPP 10: Interview with Shane Dailey; Father, Homesteader & Kin


Today, I am introducing you to one of the most amazing people, you’ve probably never heard of! This man married his high school sweetheart at 18 years old, is the father of 6 beautiful children, and one of the most intelligent homesteading human beings I know. Today, I am interviewing my only, half-brother by blood, full-brother by Spirit, Shane Dailey! Shane has SO MUCH wisdom he could share with us, but today I am focusing on his ability to recycle and repurpose normal everyday items around his property and garden. And how he goes about homesteading with a large family. Some might call him a hoarder, including me, but nonetheless his ingenuity for finding purpose in what many would consider garbage, is amazing! So, listen in as my very own brother shares some of his tricks and tips for living an intentional permaculture inspired life!
