Casey and Savannah are two best friends who live together in Nashville, Tn. They share their home with 2 dogs, Whitt and Hazel, and 8 hens- Monica, Rachel, Ross, Chandler, Phoebe, Joey, Janice, and Ursula. They started homesteading back in 2013 when they lived in a different house and shared chickens with their neighbors. After moving in 2015, they put vegetable gardening and chickens behind them for a while, and focused on landscape gardening in their new home.

Things to took a turn in September 2019 when they took a trip to California to hike the John Muir Trail. The hike was supposed to take 3 weeks but they had to cut it short after a week of hiking due to altitude sickness. So they stayed at a bunch of Hipcamps all around California and ended up seeing a lot of different farms and homesteads. This left the girls inspired and they came home ready to start it all over again. In October 2019 they ordered chicks online and started building garden beds, and the rest is history.

When the ladies aren't homesteading, Casey is a registered nurse and Savannah runs their other blog, Hey Wanderer which has been around since 2011. They also enjoy hiking, traveling, and camping.

Where did the name come from? Casey and Savannah have always dreamed of having a home where people gather and feel safe, welcome, and comfortable. Somewhere along the way after moving in they realized their home had not been that place for people. At the beginning of 2020 they began to pray that their home would become that place they always wanted it to be. They realized the homestead they were planning could help bridge that gap along with a newly ignited desire to love and be a part of community. Their prayers were that the garden would be a blessing to others and that they would be good stewards of the land they had been given. Also, that people would gather around the table and eat food gathered from the garden and that these people would feel loved and seen.
