Hello! My name’s Kateri. Welcome to my blog and my homestead. Originally from New Jersey, I am now starting my third year living in Tanzania, and am a new wife, homeowner, and homesteader. Whether you’ve stumbled upon or been directed to my site, welcome! Feel free to witness and follow along my journey of plant coaxing, animal wrangling, and Swahili-language mangling.

May my experiences and inexperiences be helpful for the readers who find this blog. I hope I can inspire a few like-minded spirits to live more sustainably and intentionally, and have a closer connection with their own environment, food, and community – whether they’re living in a studio apartment or on a cattle ranch.

Let’s jump in. Karibu sana – you are very welcome here!
