The 10 Elements of the Urban Homestead Project

The current urban sustainability movement is a positive trend in American society. It has the potential to revitalize families and, thus, towns in our long tradition of self-sufficiency and independence.

Homesteading in the city requires responsibility to one’s neighbors and fellow citizens. When it is undertaken with such a foundation, this way of life yields rich rewards of experiencing the rhythms of nature and wonders of animal life

– Jules Dervaes (1947 – 2016)
