1995, Thamm and Qeanu moved to a rural island in the Strait of Georgia — Denman Island, BC — to set up an off-the-grid homestead. In love with their new-found self-sufficient life of growing organic foods, raising rescued animals, and living on the labor of their own hands, Thamm started writing about living off the grid and living on a raw vegan diet. Many people followed their daily adventures through their posts and wondered where to find chemical-free clothing and home products that they wrote about. And thus was born the rawganique.com website....
Since 1997, Rawganique Atelier has been making hand-crafted organic cotton, linen, and hemp products on a small family-scale. Today, we continue to make chemical-free and elastic-free organic clothing, footwear, bed, bath, and home products for discerning customers who cannot tolerate chemicals as well as those who prefer to live without toxic chemicals in their daily lives.
In 1995, the founders of Rawganique moved to Denman Island, a rural island in the Strait of Georgia in BC to homestead off-the-grid. They grow their own organic foods year-round in their many gardens and raise rescued pet chickens, ducks, geese, cats, and dogs. And there lots of wildlife abound on their organic natural property.
So this blog HomesteadingMatters.com is the intersection point between Thamm and Qeanu's eco-minded business and their love and passion for self-sufficiency. We love and respect all life forms and are staunchly against animal cruelty of any kind.
Homesteading matters — for self-sufficiency and food independence!
