Learning to become an urban homesteader is all about the art of making do with what you have, where you are and going forward into a dream. A dream where you can take care of yourself, grow your own food, and be “one with” the world around you.
Pursued in different ways around the world — and in different historical eras — homesteading is generally differentiated from rural village or commune living by isolation (either socially or physically) of the homestead. Many homesteaders do homestead on less than a sprawling acreage. In fact, small homesteads that have less than 1/4 acre are becoming more the “norm” than the “odd”.
