Urban Homestead in a Michigan suburb

Part of my second year vegetable garden

I have been growing vegetable gardens in my backyard for several years, each year the gardens get a little bigger.  I have installed 3 rain barrels and a few compost piles.  I don’t have any alternate energy sources, or farm type animals (chickens or goats).  But I like to think I am homesteading to the best of my ability.  I canned some of my produce and some from farmers markets, and  stored winter squashes and potatoes and carrots in a cold pantry.  I make laundry detergent and live simply.

I would like to see more people practicing urban homesteading!

Urban homestead and urban homesteading, terms that should belong to all!

    I thought Urban Homestead and Urban Homesteading are just definitions, they should not be registered trademarks at all.
