Earth event at Vromans Bookstore, Pasadena

This week is shaping up to be a busy one! In between, spring plantings, caring for animals and other urban homesteading projects we are taking time off for outreach efforts promoting urban sustainablilty and inspiring urbanites to be the change.

Tomorrow PTF will be a the big Earth Day festival in downtown LA.

Stop by our booth and….

  • get a chance chat with us urban homesteaders
  • check out the sports utility bike
  • see a solar oven in action
  • pet a few of our chickens
  • save on shipping on selected eco good from our online store.

On Saturday, PTF will once again be tabling at the Greening the Earth Day event in Pasadena.

There’s been a rash of great comments and questions about marriage to desperate, er, I mean “determined” urban homesteaders, eating granola, food budget, etc. With the nifty feature at the bottom of this journal you can catch up on the latest comments and our responses.

A warm welcome to our new readers who have dropped in via the NY Times

Posting will probably be semi erratic due to our being out and about — but we’ll do our best!

    Chag sameach friends. I’ve recently discovered your journal and am grateful to you for the motivation and inspiration. I had been regarding a self-sufficient life as something out of reach for me. I live in an apartment, so it’s still out of reach, but thanks to you it feels a little less out of reach, and I have a couple of planters of veggies that I hope will help me stretch my food budget this summer.

    Thanks for leading the way out of mitzrayim for so many.

    I love your site! We are trying to do this as well although you are miles ahead of us. Can you share more information on your washing machine that you show in your video? We’re slowly trying to go off grid here and love new ideas!
