“Operation Self-Reliance” (or OSR) was the result of Philip Gleason’s life-long journey to create a self-reliance lifestyle for his family. OSR is a private, non-profit partnership of organizations helping families achieve an off-grid, self-reliance lifestyle, not dependent on cities for their food, water, power or sanitation needs, and, living in an environmentally sustainable way, debt-free.
Self-reliance, off-grid living, Preparedness, modern homesteading, sustainable living, permaculture design, agricultural co-op, sustainable agriculture, renewable agriculture.
The Academy of Self-Reliance, a Utah non-profit Operation Self-Reliance partner, helps families along the path to self-reliance with it’s various educational programs, hands-on workshops, and events. The Academy’s “Path Program” helps families create their own detailed, actionable plan to create a self-reliance homestead. That homestead can be located on one’s own property, or, in our homesteading community like the one being build right now by the Academy’s partner, the Utah OSR Land Cooperative at Riverbed Ranch, Utah.
Is it Sustainable?
Some believe that organic farming is not sustainable, but we vehemently disagree and will prove that regenerative organic agriculture and sustainable farming practices can bring great prosperity to a cooperative community. In fact, we believe that a co-op community that balances agricultural production on private property with community-owned agricultural projects, can become self-sustaining and work wonderfully well for everyone.
