Rosemary Hansen, Urban Homesteader Turned Off-grid Natural Health Author

Name: Rosemary Hansen

Occupation: Author, Chef and Homesteading Mama

Residence: British Columbia, Canada

Background: Rosemary Hansen is a published author, devoted Mama, and Chef. After “homesteading” in the city for more than 10 years, she and her family moved to a 15-acre plot of land in rural British Columbia, Canada, where they learned the true meaning of being a homesteader without running water. With her twin baby girls, her 6-year-old future heavy-equipment mechanic, and her supportive woodworker husband, they plan to raise rabbits, ducks, and geese in their wet coastal climate.

Rosemary’s book, The Natural Mama’s Guide to Eczema, is about her son’s eczema journey and how she ultimately healed it with natural remedies combined with years of combing through scientific journals for answers. It is available on Amazon in print and for Kindle.

Rosemary’s other books include: Grow a Salad in Your City Apartment, Rosemary’s All-Natural Cosmetic Guide, and 10 Steps to Flawless Skin.
