How good it is, what happiness is it when, united by one dream, one mind, people have the opportunity to get together and create something beautiful together!
Some people think we should adopt a special law on family homesteads so that these issues can be settled. Others believe it’s enough simply to introduce the concept of the ‘Family Homestead’ into the current Land Code.
In my school years, Vladimir Megre’s books “Ringing Cedars of Russia” became a part of my life. And then I began to dream of a family homestead and a happy future! The dream presented by the taiga hermit Anastasia inspires me in my creativity and guides me through life.
The federal government recently introduced a Bill on the regulation of the creation and operation of Family Homesteads. The document is being finalised taking into account the wishes of regional administrations.
“The Ringing Cedars of Russia” is gaining in popularity in this region, where supporters create their so-called “homesteads” (or “estates”) in ecologically clean areas. But often these assets were built spontaneously, without formal agreement. For example, this eco-friendly enclave is built on agricultural land.
This paper notes that the development of rural areas is a necessary for sustainable social and economic development in Russia and analyses the social and economic efficiency of family homestead settlements as a new way to revive rural territories.
A family homestead is a small plot of land, at least one hectare, that includes a house and a garden, a comfortable place for raising a family and for retiring in old age. It is a person’s homeland on Earth, supporting good health, scientific innovation and social well-being. This report outlines the potential of family homesteads in Australia.
Flowering plants and berries attract to the hedge the attention not only of birds, but also of neighbours, especially children, who can sniff flowers and blossoms as they run about, and treat themselves to the ripe fruits.
We create the microclimate ourselves. The most important thing is to see the meaning in all of this, to actually want to take steps to meet others, and to go ahead and begin. Only the one who walks will master the road!
I portray all my dreams in detail, and I feel them. I feel that they are already close. It remains only to open the door and they will break into my life.
We planted lots of fruit trees, berry bushes (always a few more of those to finishing off planting), loosened several flower beds for flowers, made several permanent vegetable beds (we even had the first crops), and began to plant a hedge.
The real world effects of Megre’s books are measurable, documented, and significant. Economic scientists recognise their potential. Tens of thousands of people have actively begun to shape their lives around the books, with positive results. Perhaps most remarkably of all, a federal law to allocate free land was passed in 2016, though Megre predicted it in 2001.
… The day will come when all fathers understand that it is they who must answer for the world in which their children live. The day will come when each will understand that before bringing a beloved child into the world, the world must be made happy. You, too, must think about the world in which your offspring will live….
Presentation at the “Action Forum” of the ONF, December 2017
Everyone searches for happiness. But they created it – for themselves and for us. Clean air and water for their children, fresh fruit, a garden and a forest. Their own piece of homeland, a dimension that heals and offers eternity. Forefathers are responsible for the world into which they bring children.
When a woman is pregnant, the baby has it very good in the tummy. Mama loves the baby, it’s warm and cozy there. And I really wanted that when our child was born, that it wasn’t less good than than in this space. So that everything around him was already dear and familiar, and caressed and loved him just as much. I really wanted to give the child a Space of Love!

On a Family Homestead, a person is responsible for their own well-being, health and prosperity of the family. Uniting with their like-minded neighbors, residents solve common problems of roads, work, leisure, education of children and so on.

Global figures show a serious problem: our growing population is faced with dwindling resources. But despite dire predictions, there is a solution that will ensure our prosperity. Family homesteads are urgently needed to lay the stable foundations of a positive future.
Why make so much hot air discussing the theoretical solutions to underemployment, climate change and the housing crisis when a possible solution is right here in front of us?
Let the land employ our people! Put carbon back into the soil! Grow plants to support ourselves, and sell their fruits to fund future development.
Belarus will support those wishing to build Family Homesteads, Deputy Prime Minister Mikhail Rusyi told journalists today, as reported by BelTA.

Many want to return to villages where, for example, their parents used to live, or simply prefer […]

by Natalia Butova 19 May 2017 It seems simple – this is the place where I was born, and it has geographical coordinates, like any other place on our land. But no, unfortunately, my HOMELAND does not exist anymore. It remained only in my heart and in my memory. And from there sometimes slip memories, […]
Every day we thank God for living in our Family Homestead. In the previous article, “Ecovillages or Family Homesteads?”, we considered one of the dangerous deceptions actively proposed by the forces of anti-rationality in the recent past — to rename Family Homestead Settlements as “eco-settlements” to make the world community recognise the Family Homestead movement. […]
by Galina Samokhina I am often asked whether our daughter studies well in family education, how she achieves academic progress in this or that subject. These questions pushed me to write this article. Parental concerns about school grades are understandable. I want our child to be, if not an excellent student, then at least good. […]
