"We believe the most radical thing someone can do is either grow their own food or make dinner at home. 

Self-sufficiency can be accomplished anywhere"

 

Growing the Future

The Urban Homestead project sprouted in 1985 and is located in the middle of Pasadena, California. It is a successful, real-life working model for sustainable agriculture and living in an urban area.

Our community outreach was seeded in 2001 which inspired millions worldwide to take small steps towards a more sustainable life.

Seed Money

Not only are we growing (and preserving) food but we are growing community, too. With farm dinners and skill-share workshops, our little farm in the city is fostering a face-to-face relationships where people come meet other people. Our home, turned homestead, is now a “Homestead Hub” offering many events  – from farm dinners, to after school programs, workshops and more!

HOW YOU CAN HELP    We need your support to transform homes into homesteads.

Thank you!

 

"Let’s face it. Our world is in deep, deep trouble and we are the “troublemakers.” We have to make real, difficult changes yesterday. Despite the obvious benefits, we are not going to recycle, compost, or talk our way out of this. It’s up to me and you to make the choice of becoming responsible stewards of the earth. Let’s turn the world right side up. Take steps towards a sustainable present and future. " Jules Dervaes Jr, Founder  (1947-2016)
