This is a powerful story. Jules Dervaes and his family have 1/5 of an acre in Pasadena, California and half of their homestead is filled with fruits, vegetables and animals. The Dervaes manage to produce nearly 6,000 pounds of vegetables last year - fed themselves and earned $20,000 to boot.
Listen in and you'll be inspired to get the Spring Freedom Garden happening this year.
This is real freedom as they produce, as they call it, "Weapons of Mass Creation." They are as sustainable as one can imagine, smack in the middle of an urban setting.
These people are the real deal, and come the revolution, we are pleased they are on our side. Enjoy, and as always pass this link on to everyone you care about
Well, looks like I didn't get around to updates and happenings from the urban homestead this week. Right now we are elbow deep in launching the FreedomSeeds.org site so that's pretty much taking up all our computer time at the moment.
So I guess all the photos and stories will have to wait to till next week.
