Thank you for your interest. We are no longer running the podcast Listener Sponsorship Program. 

However if you'd still like to support the podcast, you should consider joining Theresa's Living Homegrown monthly membership.

It covers some of the same topics - but DEEPER!

See The Details Below!

Live an organic, farm fresh lifestyle without having a farm!

An exclusive, online monthly membership that helps you master the skills of small-space organic food growing, artisan food crafts, and a balanced farm-fresh lifestyle.

Scroll down to learn more!

Organic, wholesome food should be easy. But the truth is...

You need a unique skillset in order to have local, organic produce at your fingertips and homecrafted foods (like fermented veggies & yogurt) at the ready.  

The Living Homegrown Institute helps you build those skillsets in a fun, supportive environment, while helping you manage the rhythms of a seasonal home at the same time.  

Does this sound like you?

  • You care about where your food comes from -- worry about the cost of eating completely organically.
  • You'd like to start a food garden or expand the one you already have -- But... you're unsure where to start OR you've had failures in the past that you don't want to repeat.
  • You'd like to learn to ferment your vegetables, make your own yogurt/cheese and other food crafts -- don't want to read 5 books or experiment 50 times before having success.
  • You want to feel confident and proud of what you feed your family because you know it's sourced from the best ingredients. And you want to do this in an affordable way. 
  • You sometimes wish you had a friend who could just come over to teach you (in the privacy of your own home) -- and shortcut your way to success...without all the trial and error in the middle.

Hi There!

I'm Theresa Loe, founder of Living Homegrown® (the award-winning website & podcast).

I'm also the Co-Executive Producer and on-air Preserving Expert of the national PBS television series, Growing A Greener World®.

After years of teaching people how to live a farm fresh lifestyle through organic gardening and seasonal living, I've learned a thing or two about what holds people back from diving into this lifestyle successfully. 

To help people on their journey toward a more flavorful, nutritious lifestyle, I created the Living Homegrown Institute. 

I've created this online membership as your shortcut to living a life full of organic produce, wholesome food, and a balanced lifestyle...without all the overwhelm.

We'll take this journey month at a time! 

~ Theresa

To live organically, you need three things:

#1: You need to build skills in the areas of sourcing, growing, and using organic food.

#2: You need support and guidance that goes beyond reading the pages of a book -- That can be a knowledgable friend, a teacher/mentor or a supportive community of people on the same path as you.

#3: You need simple strategies to manage this type of lifestyle so that you're not overwhelmed.

What if you could...

  • Grow or locally-source some of your own organic produce so that you know exactly what IS or IS NOT in your food.
  • Confidently craft your own artisan foods such as fermented vegetables, homemade cheese, and homemade yogurt.
  • Have your family on board with eating wholesome, organic food because it tastes better than anything in a box.
  • Use simple techniques and proven systems to manage this type of lifestyle so that you don't get overwhelmed.

The Living Homegrown Institute is your roadmap and your shortcut!

I've combined all my years of training and experience with the knowledge of other experts in the areas of organic gardening, food crafts and wellness to hand you the roadmap you need to succeed.

There are three areas of focus inside the Institute: GROW, NOURISH and BALANCE. 

You work on these skills each month.

You learn at your own pace - 24/7.

The entire membership is online and you can access it on any device (computer, iPad, phone).  


Some lessons focus on building skills toward managing a small-space, organic food garden. 

We cover topics ranging from Designing Your First Garden, and How To Do a Soil Test, to Growing Epic Tomatoes, and Extending the Harvest

Occasionally, we dive into topics like raising backyard chickens or ducks.

NOTE: The growing info focuses on North America climates.


Some lessons focus on a new artisan food skill or building on a food lesson.

These skills help you nourish yourself, your family, and the planet at the same time by avoiding processed foods.

Topics include things like: fermented vegetables, homemade cheese, kombucha and more.


Learning to manage a farm fresh lifestyle is key to enjoying the life you are building.

No more overwhelm!

You learn to optimize your time, build simple routines, and recharge yourself.

It's about simplifying so you can focus your time on what matters most to you.

The Living Homegrown Institute is a monthly membership that helps you build your skills in organic food gardening, artisan food crafts, and lifestyle management.
