About OFF GRID with DOUG and Stacy
In 2010 we decided to sell everything and build a log cabin on 11 acres. We have lived in the log cabin for a decade now with no solar power or wind power plus zero public utilities. We live like the pioneers except in the 21st century. We post videos on social media to encourage people to return to the land and make a living with your family. We teach folks:
*Off grid living *Rain water catchment *Cooking with wood
*Food growing *Cooking from scratch *Raised bed gardening
*Food harvesting *fermenting the harvest *food preservation
*Holistic Remedies like Grandma made *How to make money and live this life
*storing food in a root cellar *DIY Build projects
*Animal Husbandry *Raising Chickens, Guinea, Turkeys and Ducks
All of our videos are made to empower you to break free and LIVE YOUR BEST LIFE!
These are some of the best people you will experience what a couple !
Thank God for people like you..
@Poison Ivy they have what they need with a guy as big as doug I’m not shure a regular flushing toilet could suffice… the mans a giant .. much like the jolly green giant hes a gentle giant (thank god) you piss doug off and youd be in a world of hurt.
@john bourdeau Bingo. I work for a cable conglomerate and traverse through the beast system everyday. My faith is strong but it’s a beat down sometimes. These vids are a reprieve for me. Through watching their post, I realized just how separated from our food our culture is. It goes way deeper than that and I believe it’s intentional but seeing people who successfully transitioned back to a wholesome lifestyle is inspirational.
We are so blessed that they chose to share their journey and gained wisdom
Love learning from these two. They are so giving of themselves. Big hugs to Stacy & Doug 🤗
She has had a washer for years. Does what she loves.
@Poison Ivy They have a generator they use with a wringer washer. Look up Laundry Day. Also the hose did work but ran slow because of low pressure. She is NOT a VICTIM. You see what you want to.
Always a treat to see, hear and learn from Stacey & Doug. Hugs back!
I love how marigolds reseed themselves. I have fun wondering where they will come up each year. I will try them in tea next!
Donnette, what zone are you in that they reseed themselves?
@Cat W zone 7
@Donnette Henderson Okay you are warmer than me. I know zone 6 you can do that with snap dragons and sometimes in zone 5 where I’m at. Thx for the answer
@Cat W yes, snap dragons come back by themselves here too. We are supposed to get a few inches of snow here in the morning which is a little unusual for this time of year.
@Cat W only some of mine reseed – I thought it depended on how cold our winter is – but last year it was rather mild and only a few came up on their own, and O know tons of seeds fell to the ground! may be the birds eat some over the winter? oh I am in zone 6a, hit or miss.
This year is my first successful season with lots of marigolds! Gonna try the addition to taco night as well as tea! Thanks for the info! Kristy in West Plains! LHS ‘86😃🇺🇸🥓
That’s great to know, my property is covered with marigolds, I plant them everywhere. I’ve saved bags and bags of seeds.
This is my first year saving the seeds. Excited to plant them next spring!
Karen Waitley would you send me some seeds? P.O. Box 230 Lumber Bridge NC 28357 Sarah Oxendine
God IS so good, all the time, look at your beautiful beautiful bounty, WOW! Thank you so much for sharing.
That was so informative 👍❤️
Who knew that marigolds have so many wonderful benefits and uses.
I’m excited to try the marigold petals in my eggs, also the tea sounds delightful 💕
I love grated ginger and marigold in a tea and delicious and relaxing great on the gut.
Is there something affordable that you can recommend to purify drinking water? Thank you. I really enjoy your videos.
Kathleen , people say moringa seeds do
I add nasturtium and comfrey and red clover flowers to my salads. I make Chamomile, calendula, hibiscus and lavender teas. Love me some flower power!
It’s a common question: Are marigold and calendula the same? The simple answer is no, and here’s why: Although both are members of the sunflower (Asteraceae) family, marigolds are members of the Tagetes genus, which includes at least 50 species, while calendula are members of the Calendula genus, a smaller genus with only 15 to 20 species. You could say the two colorful, sun-loving plants are cousins, but marigold and calendula differences are notable.

Thank you! This is a common confusion. Two different genus. The common Marigold of the Tagetes genus is commonly known as Pot Maarigold. Because people would add them to their cooking pot. Calendula is know more for it’s medicinal qualities. I love both of the plants and flowers, but use each of them in completely different ways.
So the pot marigolds are not medicinal?
@Paula E https://www.thespruce.com/growing-and-using-calendula-1402626
She didn’t say they were the same.
need to try them in eggs – been eating a lot of nasturtium flowers and leaves, I love the spicyness.
Stressed out day. I watch you guys and it goes away. Thanks for being here. Can’t wait to be out on our land.
I love a yellow Marigold to keep the bugs away. This extra info about all they can do is so helpful
Here’s a yummy Raw recipe for Marigold Bars (Adapted from Ascension Kitchen’s recipe):
Servings: 8 Time: 20 mins
1 heaped cup marigold petals, plus extra for garnish
¾ cup grated carrot
½ cup shredded coconut
½ cup almond meal
1 cup almonds
¼ cup goji berries
¼ cup sunflower seeds
¼ cup pumpkin seeds
2 tablespoons chia seeds
1 teaspoon vanilla paste/essence
½ cup coconut butter
¼ cup maple syrup
1 teaspoon white miso
1 tablespoon orange zest, plus extra for garnish
Place the coconut butter and maple syrup in a jug, and rest it over a bath of hot water or on a hot stove to soften or liquefy.
Roughly chop the whole almonds in the food processor. You want to have a few chunks in there because you are going to pulse together two more times, and you don’t want it turn into almond butter.
Add all other dry ingredients, except the flower petals and goji berries, and pulse till combined.
Pour the coconut butter and maple syrup into the mixture, and add the vanilla paste, pulse again till combined.
Add the flower petals and goji berries at the end for one final quick pulse.
Transfer mixture to an 8 inch square cake tin lined with parchment paper, use the back of a spoon or clean hands and another piece of parchment paper to flatten the surface. Press slivered almonds and more marigold leaves over the top to decorate, and perhaps some extra orange zest.
Freeze to set, cut into 8 large bars to serve.
Thx for taking the time to write this lovely recipe for us
@Valerie K You’re so welcome. 🙂
@Valerie K My pleasure
Wow – the nutrition in this recipe is amazing. Thx for posting
@Cat W My pleasure.
I have a few marigolds and will try some in scrambled eggs tomorrow. thanks!
Pansies, day lilies, nasturtiums, borage, calendula too–all wonderful in salads!
What part of the daylily is edible Suzie?
Luetin and Zeaxanthin , two supplements for aging eyes , are extracted from marigolds. Thanks. Didn’t know it could be eaten raw …
How do you know that Monir? They always advertise tomatoes as the source when they advertise supplements for those nutrients. I always like to learn
Shalom Doug and Stacey….
Me and my wife have been watching you all for 4 yrs now….we want to do what you all are doing, and we finally have taken baby steps.. we purchased RV… We moved from NC to Arkansas just 2 months ago and trying to purchase a few acres and you all have really shown us a lot… blessings to you…
Awesome and shalom
Hmm, historically I did not like the smell of marigold except when they are eaten by chickens. Next year I will apply your advice throughout my garden. I will also endeavour to eat the flowers. Thanks for the new information. I enjoy your dream garden, great work Stacey👍💪🏾💃😊
