Greg Joly and Mary Diaz purchased a piece of land in Jamaica, Vermont, and hand built a homestead, following in the footsteps of Scott and Helen Nearing who, in 1932, left New York City to establish a homestead in Jamaica, Vermont. Their experiment in living the simple life, building their own home, growing their own food became famous with the publication of "Living the Good Life - How to Live Sanely and Simply in a Troubled World." They continued their experiment in Vermont for over 20 years before taking their learned skills in homesteading to build another homestead in Harborside Maine.

Thanks to Greg Joly & Mary Diaz of Jamaica Vermont
