Dear Friends, Family, Customers and Fans,

Thank you all for the outpouring of support this past month since the death of our father, Jules Dervaes, Jr. The overwhelming number of comments, cards, calls, texts and emails, as well as donations and gifts of food, time, music, running errands, offering advice and just being there, have been greatly appreciated. The tremendous worldwide response has touched us knowing that our father’s work inspired so many. Even though we may not be able to answer everyone at this time, we want you to know that your condolences and assistance have been a blessing and comfort to our family.

Many of you have asked how you can help us during this transition time. Right now, as you can imagine, we are still in shock and a bit overwhelmed. We are taking things one day at a time, so there is always something needed.

After years of drought, we are grateful for the blessing of winter rains, which has helped out the garden. Spring is just around the corner, obviously a busy season for us on the Homestead. If you would like to help us grow forward and make a donation, please visit our website at http://www.urbanhomestead.org/donate

There will be a public celebration of the life of Jules Dervaes later in the year; the date is still to be determined.

Once again, we appreciate all the ways each of you has reached out to our family and to the community.

Blessings,
Anais, Justin & Jordanne

    A child of the Crockett’s Victory Garden movement, you were my first introduction to urban farming. Your father will be missed by us all.

    Just a few seconds back got the chance to view homegrown revolution video and it saddens to hear the person behind the revolution is no more . One persons impact reaches miles just to share a thoughtful message that motivates people like me to take those steps. God Bless ! -with love from India

    So profoundly sorry to learn of your loss. Jules Dervaes has been and will continue to be a dynamic inspiration to us who care about our health and the well-being of the earth.
