Show Notes

  • Doing the difficult things can be worth it, even with the pain involved, for the people you meet and the experiences it brings.
  • The Small Scale Life is a combination of many things, taking responsibility for yourself and your community, sharing with others, getting rid of the excess stuff
  • You don’t need to be the big shot, just be content and find your niche
  • Small Scale Gardening and Small Scale Life became a virtual journal of Tom’s journey into learning and developing the ideas of living a small scale life
  • Tom got interested in the rail roads early in life, and kept at it
  • Tom’s work with the railroads give him a chance to take little adventures visiting the crossings across the midwest
  • The background in systems and being methodical is one of the ways Tom brings his engineering background to gardening
  • Gardening is more than dropping seeds in the ground and rolling a pile of dirt on top
  • Rome wasn’t built in a day, if you want to live a small scale life, start small
  • Make a start, build confidence and build momentum to keep going
