Learning to Be Human

By Brandon Dinsmore

I have a goal of as much self-reliance as possible while living a creative and fun life with my wife and, one day, kids. I write about gardening with permaculture, raising livestock, and DIY tips and tricks, as well as produce music, design websites, and generally just whatever seems interesting to me. For more, you can check out my website.
