About Oak Hill Homestead

You have a dream!

Whether you're in the city, the suburbs, or in the middle of the woods, you can live a simple, joyful, and more self-sufficient life. 

And that's where I come in. I'll show you how to grow and raise healthy food for you and your family.

No matter where you live!

I'm Kathi, wife, mom, grandma (and now a great-grandma!) who loves Jesus, organic gardening, and goats.

I carried the dream of a simple life inside my heart for so many years while I followed the Chief, my military-then-pastor husband, from one end of the world to another and around the United States a few times. We've moved more than 30 times in our 49 years of marriage.

I'm not kidding. I stopped counting when we moved for the 30th time.

Moving so often made it challenging to live the simple life I craved and to find that sense of Home that I longed for. But no matter where we go, I've always found comfort and purpose in gardening, even if my "garden" was a single tomato plant on our back porch or deck. 

Gardening has given me a way to "put down roots" and create a sense of stability and belonging that is so important to me.

Moving so often has given me a wealth of experience in gardening in various areas of the USA, each with its own unique soil and climate conditions. 

I've learned to adapt my gardening techniques and practices to fit the environment I'm in, and I've become a firm believer in the importance of organic gardening to nourish our bodies and our souls.

That nomadic life also taught me that making a simple life is up to me. No one else can do it for me. Our attitude is important!

"Simple living" looked different in each house and apartment we lived in, and it will look different for you too, but deep down, we all have the same yearning, don't we?

To live a less stressful, more fulfilling, satisfying life.

Maybe that dream calls even louder to you if you live in the city or suburbs.

You can do this, even if there isn't room for livestock, even if the only soil available is in containers on the balcony and your thumb is anything but "green."

My passion is to help you cultivate a garden of your own, and to live a simple, joyful life, no matter your circumstances or where you live!
