THE URBAN HOMESTEAD on GREEN LIVING IDEAS

Urban Homesteading with Jules Dervaes

Since the mid–1980s, members of the Dervaes family have steadily worked at transforming their ordinary city lot in Pasadena into a thriving organic micro farm that supplies them with food all year round. These eco-pioneers also run a successful home business providing their surplus produce to local restaurants. Through their adventures in growing and preserving their own food, installing a solar power system, home-brewing biodiesel for fuel,raising backyard farm animals, and learning back-to-basics skills, these modern-day pioneers have revived the old-fashioned spirit of self-reliance and resourcefulness. Since 2001, their site has inspired hundreds of thousands to take steps towards a sustainable future and has generated a 21st century urban farming movement.
