Urban homesteading is a growing movement in this country, part of the global re-imagining of culture on the other side of governmental indifference and corporate greed. Concerned about climate change and peak oil? Thinking about localizing your food sources? Wondering how to manage water, waste and energy better? Trying to raise your children with positive, life-centered values? Interested in community building and local self-reliance? Looking for resources for taking care of yourself while taking care of the world?

This book will answer these questions and provides an inspirational how-to and why-to for the urban homesteading movement.

Richly illustrated with over 100 color drawings and photographs, and featuring interviews with homesteaders “on the ground,” Urban Homesteading will give you an introduction to urban permaculture, the power of creating a personal sustainability plan for yourself and your neighborhood, and detailed how-to descriptions on the basics of do-it-yourself ecological living in the city.

“This book is ridiculously good, a stunner. The authors outdid themselves, and everyone else who touches upon this field. It is a manifesto, a guide, a book of prayers, a much-needed tutorial. It has goodness on every page and light throughout, yet it is erudite, exact, definitive, and practical. What a rare thing. You have my thanks and unconditional praise for what you have accomplished--a masterpiece where there has never been one before.“ — Paul Hawken, Author & Founder of Smith & Hawken
