The Urban Homesteaders

This family takes the cake…. when I started to think about either building my own home or going the rehab route, or even just making my own gardens that provide more of my family’s grub…  I kept stumbling upon the Dervaes family.

They are a family that produced over 5,000 pounds of food in their little city yard last year.  It’s only 1/10th of an acre, folks…   They have been on tv and all, but it’s their decision to live simply and deliberately that really caught my eye.

I’m not sure that I can accomplish as much as they are doing, and I’m not so sure that I even want to try.   First off, I do live in a mobile home park, so I don’t have the ability to go completely nuts with all my ideas, so I’m trying some of it, and trying to adapt some of my ideas and such into making my life as comfortable and self sufficient as I can.

Anyway…. check out their website:

and here is a video of them!
