Self Sufficiency is a topic of paramount importance amongst Preppers and Survivalists. Nothing represents self-sufficiency and self-reliance more than homesteading. But what is Urban Homesteading? What’s possible for city farmers? How long does it take? How much work does it take?
Hosts Aaron and Jonathan interview Kelly Coyne and Erik Knutzen – Authors of The Urban Homestead and Making It. Following the theme of The Urban Homestead, Episode 28 is a discussion about why you should be gardening and what’s possible.
Homesteading in a city is a major aspect of urban survival and Kelly and Erik wrote the book on it – literally. From the “what’s possible” to the “How to do it”, Kelly and Erik have covered all the bases with their two books: The Urban Homestead and Making it.
