Reclaim Your Independence
Hi! I'm Anna...
I'm a former city girl turned modern homesteader with a passion for producing whatever I can with my own two hands, creating a life I love on my own terms, and helping others do the same!
I live with my husband and two kids on a relatively small, 1/4 acre property where we grow, produce and preserve hundreds of pounds of our own food each year, craft our own herbal medicine and natural products, cook, bake and DIY as much as possible from scratch, and are constantly learning new ways to be more self-reliant. But this wasn't always the case...
Just a few years ago we were still stuck in the rat race, living in a city condo with zero experience. The transition from urbanites to homesteaders seemed daunting, almost impossible at first. I questioned if we were too late to embrace this lifestyle and feared we lacked the necessary skills.
Yet, here we are, a mere decade later, thriving in ways I never thought possible. Through trial, error and perseverance, we've come farther than I ever dreamed we would, and I'm thankful beyond words that we decided to pursue a more self-sufficient lifestyle that has provided us with freedom and security in these uncertain times.
I'm passionate about helping others create more freedom and security in their own lives too, which is what eventually led me to create The Society of Self-Reliance: It's the exact mentorship program I wish I had stumbled upon back when I was feeling lost, overwhelmed and alone; A one-stop library full of expert-led tutorials, personalized mentorship, and a vibrant community of supportive, like-minded people with shared values and common goals.
We're dedicated to helping you learn new skills, break new boundaries, provide for yourself and your loved ones, and be the master of your own destiny in a world that seems hellbent on keeping you dependent. No matter where you're at on your homesteading and self-sufficiency journey, if you value freedom, security and independence and want to live a more homemade, homegrown, self-sufficient life, you've come to the right place.
What's included inside the Society?
When you join the Society of Self-Reliance, you'll get instant access to an extensive library of video lessons, downloads and resources to help you take the next step on your homesteading and self-sufficiency journey.
You'll also become part of our exclusive and private community where you'll get to meet, learn from and share information and encouragement with other like-minded people who are working toward increasing their self-reliance just like you!
Finally, you'll get ongoing and personalized support from me in our private members community and during our monthly live group coaching calls.
Each month we focus on a different theme or aspect of self-reliance, and new lessons and content are added to the library. From growing your own groceries to stocking your pantry to learning how to use herbal medicine to emergency preparedness to basic construction skills to creating more financial freedom and independence (and more!), if there's a skillset that will help you increase your overall self-reliance, we'll cover it inside the Society membership.
Plus, you'll get access to these awesome bonuses:
Gardening & Preserving Masterclasses
Complimentary access to my Victory Gardening and Food Preservation Masterclasses, where I'll teach you the top 10 best survival crops to grow and how to maximize food production on your property, as well as 5 ways to preserve your harvest!

Here's what other Society members are saying:
Jenny Inker says:
“The Society of Self-Reliance has quickly become one of the most important supports on my journey to become a homesteader for several reasons. First and foremost this is because of Anna. She is knowledgeable and generous in sharing her knowledge. Through her straightforward and encouraging videos, I have already learned so much. She takes each subject and breaks it down into manageable steps. She shares tips and resources for success but she also shares challenges and struggles and how she has overcome them. This is invaluable because it helps me navigate the ups and downs of my own homesteading journey with more grace. And then there is the community Anna has created - it is a friendly place where members are encouraged to learn from and share with each other. I am grateful I found Anna and the Society of Self Reliance!”
Ron Harmon says:
“For those that are thinking about getting into homesteading, whether on a big scale with several acres or more or just from a small place maybe even in a suburb or an apartment, I highly recommend The Society of Self-Reliance. Even though I am a senior citizen in my 70's, I have learned so much and my small backyard raised bed garden has improved so much because now I am doing things the way they need to be done to be successful. The group has a wonderful community page where folks can share information and pictures of their accomplishments. Besides gardening subjects, Anna offers so much more including canning, fermentation, herbs, preparedness, time management and more and her husband also shares many skills for those that enjoy doing things themselves with their hands around the homestead. Anna also does an online magazine filled with information from herself and other homesteaders. So much to learn and enjoy. I highly recommend the Society.”
Haley Larson says:
“Joining the Society with Anna has been a huge benefit to me. The wealth of information from the videos, message board and live coaching calls has helped me narrow in and decide what I want to focus on as far as gardening and homesteading, and helped me set goals for the future. Anna’s down to earth and encouraging approach to walk you through all steps and answer questions along the way, has given me confidence that I can try anything I set my mind to. My main objective this year has been growing herbs for medicinal use and also preserving/canning as much food for my family’s future. The Society has lessons that are thorough on each of these subjects with loads information and walks you through the steps to be successful. I cannot say enough great things about Anna’s courses and the society - and I would recommend it to anyone at any skill level who wants to become more self-sufficient!”
Lisa Nicoletti says:
“I have been a Society of Self-Reliance member for about a year now and I have learned SO much during that time! Anna's instructional videos are always clear and concise and have a wealth of information that I can put to use in my home or garden. I look forward to our monthly group coaching calls, where we have a chance to ask questions and talk about our challenges and successes. I also appreciate the ability to chat with other members at any time and offer each other support and encouragement. I've learned so much from connecting with other Society members and enjoy being a part of their homesteading journey.”
Jayne Smalley says:
“Two years ago I decided to start a garden so I could work toward being more self-sufficient. I happened across Anna and the House and Homestead website. I joined her Society of Self-Sufficiency and have never regretted it. Not only did she give me lots of great information on all aspects of gardening, food preservation and so much more, but she also gave me the confidence to try new things that were totally out of my comfort zone. I am so thankful to her for the live group coaching and willingness to answer any question I have!”
Linda Longtin says:
“Anna answers any questions she has in a timely manner in the Society of Self-Reliance. I am more aware of what I need to be prepared for a disaster such as a tornado or severe weather. I also enjoy being part of a caring community who share the same goals on growing their own food, and the common struggles of living off the land. I will be fermenting honey with garlic for the first time with great tips on fermenting and recipes from Anna. Her down to earth personality is always appreciated, especially when my father passed away last year before Christmas."

Still on the fence???
I get it. These times are uncertain; We need to be prudent with how we spend our time, money and energy. But I can assure you that everything that's included in your Society of Self-Reliance membership will help you to do just that.
If you've been spending too much time worrying about the state of the world, you're certainly not alone. The unprecedented events that have transpired across the globe over the past few years have affected everything from the cost of living to what's available at any given time on grocery store shelves. Every day on the news it seems like there's a a new disaster or tragedy that you have no control over, but that has real world implications for you and your family. It can feel disempowering and even scary!
What will you do if inflation continues to rise?
How will you feed your family if you can't access or afford what you need from the grocery store?
What safety nets and skills do you currently have in case of an emergency?
These are just some of the many questions that are keeping so many people awake at night these days. But the good news is that there IS something you can do about it!
There are things you can start learning and implementing immediately to increase your security and self-sufficiency so that you're better prepared to provide for yourself and your loved ones and weather any storm that may come.
The problem isn't that there's nothing you can do. The problem is that there's so MUCH you can do to increase your self-reliance that it's hard to know where to start.
It can feel totally overwhelming at times when you're trying to learn and do ALL THE THINGS, and you can end up wasting way more time, resources and energy than you need to if you're trying to go it alone with no framework, guidance or community support.
But it doesn't have to be this way!
The Society will help you increase your self-reliance, one step at a time
The Society is designed to give you all of the tools, resources and support you need to simplify your self-sufficiency journey, so you can rest easier knowing you have the skills, knowledge and confidence to survive, thrive and provide for yourself and your family no matter what's happening in the world.
Right now you can join for the lowest price ever
If you're feeling anxious about spending money right now, keep in mind that this is the lowest price you'll ever be able to join and lock in at.
I've kept membership rates as low as possible for the past couple years, which means you can still take advantage of introductory pricing, but only until the end of March, 2024. After that membership rates will be increasing from $20/month to $25/month, and from $200/year to $250/year paid up front.
Remember, if you don't love the Society, you can cancel your membership at any time on the monthly plan, and if you purchase the yearly plan you are entitled to a 30-day happiness guarantee.
I hope you'll join me and the other new members inside the Society. In a world where so much is out of your control, this is one decision that will help you increase your self-reliance, reclaim your independence and ultimately shape your own destiny.
The time to take action is now.
I hope to see you inside:)
