Hi! I'm Shanna Lea (formerly Shanna Ohmes) and I write on my blog The Natural Living Site, about everything from herbs, nutrition, healthy eating, traditional foods and diets and naturalist studies to homesteading, livestock, animals, and traditional cultures from around the world. I have spent my life raising and homeschooling my children and studying herbs, nutrition and natural living skills through courses and self-study for over 20 years. I’ve applied what I’ve learned with my family, friends, pets and livestock.
I’ve raised my children as much as possible in a natural lifestyle, have taught them many life skills through our homesteading and homeschooling years. We raised dairy goats, Angora goats for spinning wool, chickens, ducks, cattle and rabbits.
Due to health issues, a drought, an empty nest and mid-life changes, I have put my homesteading days on pause. Now I am devoted to my writing so that I can share what I’ve learned about nutrition, herbs and homesteading to help others make healthy natural lifestyle choices.
