Today’s show discusses the concept of homesteading as a lifestyle design component and how that relates to preparedness. On the surface this seems obvious enough, most homesteaders grow food, food is a key component of survival so isn’t that enough. Well, I actually do think free high quality food from your back yard is enough, but that don’t mean it is all that you get from homesteading.
Also today while I am not specifically talking about “urban homesteading” I am really going to confine my dicussion to things that will by and large work anywhere that you have even a typical postage stamp sized lawn. That said I can’t make your spouse agree or your HOA blue hairs go away.
