Wide Earth Smallholding

Wide Earth Smallholding

And Allaah has made for you the earth a wide expanse.(Qur'aan- 71:19)

Welcome to Wide Earth

It’s been a time of new beginnings for our family- starting a new life here in America after ten years in Yemen, trying out some new things in homeschooling the children, relearning how to drive, starting a garden, and so many others.

This is our last home in Yemen, seen at sunrise.

One of our new beginnings is this blog. In it we hope to share information, as well as our knowledge and experiences in healthy, sustainable living. We hope to make this a resource for others who are seeking to live simply and mindfully, and who want to work towards such goals as growing their own food, eating in a more healthy manner, building community, using alternative energy and growing methods, and becoming as self-sufficient as possible.

We welcome beneficial comments and ideas, and hope that you will join us in our journey, and share your knowledge and experience with us as well.

  1. Alhamdulillah, we are pretty pleased with how it is doing, especially in light of the fact that we are not right there to take care of it, and the success is with Allaah. Last week, for example, as soon as we arrived at the house to work, there was a downpour, mash’Allaah. We did the best we could and did what we were able, and alhamdulillah, it looks like everything turned out okay from that.
    The backyard is a continuing mystery to us- there are literally tens of scallions coming up all over the place, and clover, violets, and yesterday we saw WILD STRAWBERRIES! Mash’Allaah, very little grass, but very interesting and diverse ground cover just the same.
    The herbs in the photo above were transplanted from their wooden planting boxes because they either weren’t thriving or were actively dying. They are much better now, alhamdulillah!
