One of the main reasons people dream of moving to the country and starting a homestead is so that they can really enjoy nature, appreciate it’s beauty, and own their own little piece of paradise. Urban homesteaders can still appreciate nature, but it takes a little more pre-planning and travel than it might if you live on your own acreage. It’s a similar mind set as when utilizing the outer permaculture zones when on a small homestead. Luckily, most areas have many parks, national, and state forests and protected areas where people can go to appreciate the birds, trees, plants and natural beauties.
