Hello & welcome

Hi! Welcome to our blog. This has been a long time in the making. We started our journey a couple years back when we decided it was time to make some raised garden beds on our 1/4-acre property. Since then it has been a journey of trial and error as we aim to grow our urban homestead.

The learning continues as we talk with local farms (both urban and rural), dine at local farm-to-table restaurants, and explore organic food production.

Not everything is about food and farming, though. While it’s the basis of our journey, good design is also important – whether it’s outdoors, indoors, or posted on the web. It’s possible to have a successful urban garden that grows a sufficient amount of food and that looks good at the same time.

We hope you enjoy following us on our journey of exploring the urban farm landscape for wholesome family living.
