If you are interested in reading more about the history of "urban homesteading," I have rounded up a few links to share with you. Here, Marie writes about the many generations of rural-suburban-urban homesteaders in her family. Then there is the website of the Dervaes family, whose two decade project of turning their urban city lot into a prolific farm is impressive, but who have also created a lot of controversy by trying to trademark the term "urban homestead" even though the term precedes their work. You can read a short reference to the history of the term as well as a synopsis of the controversy here.
This is where the three words of my blog find a home together: eating whole foods, digging in urban soil, and stitching together a homemade life: I am an urban homesteader. Let's see what you've made, grown, cooked and sewn...
I am not particularly technologically inclined. If you know how to make a badge for us to use for our weekly Urban Homesteader blog party, I would love to hear from you! If you are interested in reading more blogs about a homegrown life, you can check out the weekly blog hop at Sustainable Eats or see the Radical Homemakers website.
A request: please link to recent posts on your own blog that are related to growing food, reducing unnecessary consumerism, sustainable living and good old fashioned homemaker skills. Can't wait to see what you have to share!
