Not too sure how to find food when the grocery stores run out? What plants to use as toilet paper? How to cook without power or gas? Want to provide all of your own needs but lack the confidence to do so?

I can help! I will be releasing new content each week to help you become self-sufficient. This content will be available indefinitely for your reference.

I'm Jenine Kozey, a knitting, woodworking physicist who has a passion for edible and medicinal plants and all things to do with nature and the outdoors! I'm a bit of a Jack-of-all-trades having made everything from homemade cosmetics to tasty foraged meals and my own off-grid cabin. I'm notorious for trying new things, making mistakes, and helping others learn from them! I spend most of my life outdoors on my farm with my husband, four boys and my chickens. I love adventure, travel and helping others to heal and grow.

A perpetual learner and avid reader, I take numerous courses each year to hone my expertise. Most recently, I am enrolled in Advanced Herbalism with the Herbal Academy of New England as well as the Vitalist Herbal Practitioner Course through Evolutionary Herbalism. I have completed my Permaculture Design Certificate Course, Earthworks Course, Reading the Landscape Course and Plant Spirit Medicine Course among many others.

I teach the permaculture design certificate course, host various plants walks and teach workshops on rainwater harvesting, raising chickens, preserving food, gardening by the moon, self-healing seminars, and many other topics (both online and in-person).

In 2019 my life took a crazy, life-altering turn when I was diagnosed with a sarcoma that ate through my breastbone and caused my ribs to dislocate. I learned that year to ask for help, speak my mind and be true to who I was. I slowed down, simplified my life even further and gained a clarity of purpose that few people get to experience. This included narrowing down my life path to helping others find their passion and live the life they truly want. Luckily, I was able to shrink the sarcoma on my own to make it operable, and today I am cancer-free! Woohoo!

I appreciate each and every enrollment I receive as it helps me to learn what gaps I have in my understanding, and provides me the opportunity to meet wonderful, like-minded souls. If you feel like taking my courses is of benefit to you, I would love to meet you and have you on the journey!

All the best!
