It’s been amazing to see transformation and shift towards the modern urban homestead movement on the internet. Urban homesteading is now a lifestyle choice – a journey towards urban self sufficiency.
Remember at the start of the year I said we’d be announcing some exciting ventures and projects we’ve been working on? Here’s a nifty little “Online Eco-mmunity” venture we created to unite fellow urban homesteaders.
Yep, that’s right! The urban homesteaders here at PTF have started a “Web Ring” for fellow urbanites and city dwellers who have merged off the freeway of modern life onto a more sustainable, self sufficient path.
Small Steps, Big Impact
