Urban Homestead Making A Sustainable Village

UPDATE:

Hello!

The past few day has rather blindsided me to be honest.  I found out about the ridiculous homesteading copyright yesterday at about 11am, I was informed by you and other readers.  I personally think that the claims the Drevaes family has tried to assert are ridiculous.  I also feel that the copyright will soon be revoked, the Electronic Frontier Foundation has helped several people lawyer up and they have a very good track record.

The point is, I became aware of this after my posts were made, had I known about the controversy, the post would not have been made.  The upshot of it all is that there have been some interesting conversations done in the comments.  To delete the post would be to delete the comments and conversations.

So I invite you to continue reading the blog and would love to hear your thoughts.

Thanks!

Many of you know in addition to loving Tiny Houses, I have an interest in sustainable food systems, I see these things as very interconnected.  Now Path To Freedom’s Urban Homestead is looking to start a sustainable village, where, dare I say, Tiny Houses just might find a home.  Check out this video.

When Worlds Collide

So I have talked before about Path To Freedom, which is this awesome urban homestead just barley outside of downtown LA, where they grow tons of food, have goats, bees and chickens.  Then last night I was flipping channels and came upon a show called “you’re cut off”.  Where the premise is women who are very pampered, depended on a benefactor, and completely disconnected with reality are cut off financially.  These are women who spend over a half a million dollars a year, just on clothes.  Well in this episode, they took a trip to the urban homestead to see how less is actually more.  It gives an interesting perspective from both extremes:  the less is more and the more is more schools of thought.  click the photo below and go to the site to check it out

Here is one of my favorite inspirations for gardening.  They are the Dervaes family is an impressive group, producing thousands of pounds of produce on only 1/10th of an acre.  You can see their website here
