What are some practical options to live off the grid?

    It depends on how you plan to live this way. I am a firm believer in survivalism and wilderness training, however you may not view this option as practical. In my opinion though, survival knowledge is good insurance for any situation that one may encounter in these uncertain times. Primitive styles of living have proven themselves with many native cultures since ancient times. This is also a good option for those that do not have the financial means to “live green” according to the way that our society has set it up.

    Getting of the grid is a long and challenging process, but there are many steps you can take that allow you to experience some independence relatively quickly.  One of the easiest and most effective things you can do is to start some small scale farming activities.  Raising chickens for eggs and meat (so long as you have the space) can be an extremely rewarding experience, and while it’s not exactly easy, it’s not exactly impossible either.  Subsistence hunting and fishing are another way you can provide yourself with food.  If you don’t think you’re quite ready for animals, gardening is another great way to start exercising your independence.  Again, it’s time consuming and, at times, challenging, but it can be done.

    If you’re more mechanically minded, you could also try your hand at energy independence.  I’ve never tried it myself, but you could install a wind mill or solar panels on your property and start getting off the grid that way.  You can also chop your own wood and use wood to heat your home and cook.
