“Progress starts with envisioning a new (yet old) lifestyle with the home as central to all aspects of life—work and leisure, food and energy. So, real progress means bringing the economy, beginning with the food economy, home again.” —Jules Dervaes Jr. (1947-2016)
Sharing our city homesteading adventures started one hot July summer day back in 2001 with our first “journal entry.” Who would have thought that little entry would eventually leave tracks that trail blazed the modern city homesteading movement as it is today. These last few years we have seen a major shift in the urban landscape as more city folks are taking control over their food, energy, fuel, and water supply.
It’s certainly a sentimental anniversary in many ways. While we pause to look back at how far this message has traveled (thanks to the media and our award winning short film ‘Homegrown Revolution’ we grow forward with the recent launch of our podcast and there’s more to come!
Thank you to all our thousands, hundreds of thousands readers, who, over the years, have been following our pioneering journey. Not to mention those of you who have supported our continuing growth over the years either through donations , farmstand purchases or attending our many events.
Your support, kind words, encouragement and stories of your steps towards a more sustainable future have really lifted us up. Especially, more so since the sudden death of our father in December of last year. And, for that, we are truly blessed and humbled.
From our family to yours… Keep on Growing!
