Homestead:a place where a family makes its home, including the land, house, and outbuildings
My husband and three kids, along with our critters, make our home in the city. We have a (blessedly huge) .38 acre lot where we grow our own vegetables and herbs, have had chickens, and hope to some day have goats. I also farm deeper in the city at a church in a food desert. It is our goal to empower the community towards food and income security through agriculture and entrepreneurship.
I farm, cook, sew, knit and attend college full time pursuing a degree in sustainable agriculture.
My husband is an avid cyclist and a musician. He supports my work and inspires me to follow my passions.
I had been considering blogging our adventures as we move towards self-sufficiency, but the recent events surrounding the trademarking of the descriptors of our lifestyle have pushed me over the edge.
I am an Urban Homesteader! I welcome you to follow our journey.
