Oak Hill Homestead carnival edition

Welcome to this week's Homesteading Carnival!

Spring has arrived, on the calendar if not in your neck of the woods. Spring gives most of us a "shot in the arm", a burst of energy to get projects started (and hopefully completed). Here is a look at what our homesteading friends are working on these days. Let's start outside:

Heather Levin presents The Benefits of a Living Roof posted at The Greenest Dollar. "Living roofs save energy and offer a whole host of other benefits. Learn why living roofs are so cool... " In my opinion they are so pretty too!......... (Join Kathi over @ Oak Hill Homestead for the remainder of the carnival)

Weekly carnival up

This week's carnival is up and ready for reading. However, before getting to that Please Take a minute and see the schedule for April. I have a date open and one that I'm still waiting to hear from.
