I know it’s not really “homesteady” news but such news is one of the most important aspects of urban homesteading — sharing with our neighbors.
Requests are pouring in – folks want us here, there. Unfortunately we can’t be everywhere.
Sadly the much anticipated Tennessee trip has been postponed. Unfortunately the Appalachian film festival couldn’t arrange for our accommodations nor assist in helping us put on an urban homesteading presentation afterwards so we could pay for our air fare and travel expenses. We are pretty (extremely) bummed but are hoping that some of the kind TN folks who contacted us can arrange for something in the future. We’d really love to come and swap howdies with ya’ll.
Besides that HUGE disappointment, we did have some good news! The International Festival of Sustainable Development Films – ekotopfilm 2010 has chosen film, Homegrown Revolution, to get the Prize of the Mayor of the Capitol City of Slovakia – Bratislava.
The work and inspiration of the Urban Homestead is constantly spreading!
While our little film sows inspiration, we’ve been busy building community – online and in person. Some online highlights you that should take notice of:
1. At Barnyards and Backyards there’s going to be a bunch of GIVEAWAYS. How do I know this, well, there are FIVE HUGE boxes that arrived here the other day and are just waiting to find good homes. So head on over, there’s already another one going on right now, check it out, perhaps you’ll win this nifty Avian Waterer
2. Freedom Gardens is highlighting it’s Gardener of the Month and much much more! Check out the articles written by our new contributing writers. So mosey on over to our social networks that are growing a sustainable community.
There’s still more events planned (check the calendar) and some of what we’ve been apart of already….
Invite the Urban Homesteaders
If you would like to involve or invite the “first family of urban homesteading” – we can, if possible make appearances in person or by Skype contact us
Thanks to generous support of our readers we are hoping to continue to do that for another year. If you’ve gleaned information and inspiration haven’t already supported our non profit outreach you can by either purchasing the Little Homestead in the City Calendar, donate or make a purchase from our Supply or Seed store.
