SANTA FE, N.M., Sept. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- A new website at HomeGardenandHomestead.com has launched to serve as an online guide to the growing list of products and services designed to appeal to the burgeoning sustainable lifestyle movement.
The Home, Garden and Homestead website is described as "the media guide to smart modern living" because of its broad content about new home and garden products ranging from holiday gifts and flower bulbs to outdoor apparel and greenhouses.
"Nearly 78 million Americans are now part of a rapidly growing sustainable lifestyle movement," said Randall D. Schultz, president of Schultz Communications, the company that launched www.HomeGardenandHomestead.com. "Whether they live in urban areas, suburban homes or multi-acre homesteads, these consumers are interested in products and services that enhance independent and natural living."
HomeGardenandHomestead.com is designed to attract two different audiences of web users—media professionals and interested consumers. Media professionals use the site as an online resource where they can download editorial content and royalty-free photos. Consumers use the site to find new and cool products for their homes, gardens and homesteads.
The Fall 2013 content posted on www.HomeGardenandHomestead.com includes stories about birds and birding, flower bulbs, fruits and fruit harvesting, outdoor apparel, container gardening, tools and accessories, greenhouses, and holiday gifts and products. All of this content is accessible from the Fall 2013 Edition navigation bar at the left side of the Home page.
From the Home page of Home, Garden and Homestead (www.HomeGardenandHomestead.com) it's easy to click on feature stories about BirdCam Pro (a new camera that automatically takes close-up photos of birds), Twist and Seal Mini (a new device that keeps electrical cord connections safe and dry), and the AutoFeeder (a programmable bird feeder that automatically dispenses bird seed). From the bottom of the Home page you can click on an icon to download a PDF file of all the Fall 2013 content from the site.
Media professionals can instantly download text and digital image files by simply clicking on the Media Room link. All of the content on www.HomeGardenandHomestead.com is royalty and copyright free, and it can be used and disseminated by any editor, writer, blogger, producer or media person.
Consumers interested in home, garden and homestead content are also welcome to visit the site. The blog at www.HomeGardenandHomestead.com keeps visitors (both media professionals and consumers) informed with the latest stories and comments about trends and products for independent and sustainable living.
Media professionals and consumers are also invited to subscribe to the free Home, Garden and Homestead eNewsletter by filling out the quick subscription form (located at the bottom left corner of the Home page).
Old Meets New
"It is indeed ironic that in the Internet Age, one of the biggest modern trends is a desire to get closer to Mother Nature and a simpler way of life," said Schultz. "I think the modern homestead is a place where a family can enjoy all of the benefits of high-speed web access (including instantaneous information, streaming entertainment, online commerce and more) and also enjoy organic vegetables harvested from their own garden or greenhouse. It's an interesting dichotomy of old and new—but in many ways it's simply taking the best from different eras and weaving it into a new tapestry of 21st century living."
