“Not From the Store” Is an help and idea page, for Home grown, Hand raised, Home and hand made, Things made from recycled materials. Trying to keep things as “Earth” friendly as possible. I realize that somethings we have to buy, and in no way am I judging those that do. Just that I like doing things a little more natural!


My Name is Leanne.  I am starting a “blog” on the advice of my wonderfully  supportive family. I live in the Fredericksburg, Virginia area, (It’s where I grew up).   I grow a decent sized garden, I home can and preserve all the food, I keep chickens, and I try to teach the young people to plant, grow, and to live as naturally as we can. I am an advocate of eating local, buying local, and supporting your local farmers.  If you love farming, whether is is big farming, micro-farming, or asphalt farming,  I will try hard to keep you interested.

I have a facebook page that I post in almost daily.  https://www.facebook.com/notfromthestore and love answering questions, If I don’t have the answer, I’ll do my best to find it!

Please take care and come back to see what’s “growing” on!
