Why Off The Gridders Are Healthier And Happier, Episode 188 (interview with Rich Scheben)

Pioneer House [1]Host Bill Heid talks to homesteader Rich Scheben, an off-the-gridder in rural Montana who says every middle class Americans should consider living a self-sufficient lifestyle – and how it’s much easier to do so than is commonly believed.

Scheben’s story of going from an urban life in New York City to a homesteader who grows and captures his own food has captivated those who desire a more self-sufficient lifestyle.

Living off the grid and among nature is healthier for you physically, mentally and spiritually, he said. It’s also fun.

Scheben isn’t wanting Americans to go back to the 1800s, but instead simply to live a life that is less reliant on the government and big business.
