Powering Down: The Silence Family in the Sea of Green

Sara and Gideon Silence of Grand Marais took a leap of faith in December of 2020, purchasing a solar-powered log cabin-style home far up and off the Gunflint Trail in rural Cook County. In this edition of Powering Down, they talk about the tumultuous start to their life off-grid and finding ways to adapt and thrive alongside their three daughters in an area known as the “Sea of Green”.
