The Urban Homestead by Kelly Coyne and Erik Knutzen

The Urban Homestead: Your Guide to Self-Sufficient Living in the Heart of the City, Kelly Coyne and Erik Knutzen. Port Townsend WA: Process Media, 2009 and 2010. e-book, 285 pps.

     The Urban Homestead is a how-to book. There are chapters and projects for those who are interested in becoming more self-sufficient. The authors cover urban farming, chickens, canning, foraging for food, dumpster diving, and transportation along with many other topics. 

     Self-sufficiency means spending less at the supermarket. It means eating produce from your garden. It means foraging for foodstuff. It means canning and composting. It means solar ovens and building stuff that will help you to live wisely in the environment. 

     And we need to care about this stuff because we humans are an ecological disaster. 

sapphoq reviews says: A practical and thorough guide to living in an ecologically responsible manner in the heart of a city. The authors are recognized urban homesteaders. They live what they write. I have the utmost respect for them and their work. Highly recommended.
