My name is Cynthia and I am an urban homesteader. I live in a 75 year old restored yellow farmhouse with my husband and sons in the Pacific Northwest.
We live on a “city lot” on the edge of farm country and we grow about 75% of our own produce and herbal teas. We believe in supporting local, handmade and homemade.
Homesteading by definition is a lifestyle of self sufficiency through gardening, food preservation, DIY and homemaking. By this definition you could be an urban homesteader just about anywhere. You don’t need acreage to homestead. You can become more self sufficient right where you are.
Thank you for being here and I look forward to getting to know you better.
