Jeremy and Melissa Souza

Good Simple Living and Homesteading

The Souzas are a homesteading, permaculture, back-to-Eden gardening, organic-farming, off-grid-building family of six. They homeschool and strive to live a simple and debt-free life. Jeremy and Melissa Souza teach their children to be self-sufficient, and they hope to inspire others to make strides in their own lives to grow good food, raise healthy meats, and learn to do things for themselves. You can find them on their YouTube channel baking, canning, raising meat rabbits and chickens, gardening, and planting. The Souzas journey has led to them recently purchasing and developing a 20-acre off-grid homestead property in North Idaho, where they are expanding upon what they have learned thus far.

Jeremy will be speaking at the Oregon Fairs
