Homesteading in an urban environment is a great way to be self-sufficient in a small space. It can be done and people with the homesteading gene will find a way. You will have a variety of options available to grow various plants as a source of food. You’ll probably wind up being closer to your neighbors than you were before. You might even find that you have a real love for gardening and urban farm animals.
One of the biggest excuses people use to not homestead in an urban environment is lack of space. That’s only an excuse, because with the proper use of available space, you’ll soon find you have all the space you need. When you find ways to achieve your desired results, then you will see that the lack of space will no longer be an issue. A typical urban homesteader will also find many ways to save money by changing the way they look at everything they buy and everything they use.
For example, the creation and use of compost for fertilizer means an urban homesteader can save money on the fertilizer itself, the food it grows, and the space it no longer takes up in the trash that needs to be removed. See for yourself that when you have a means at home to be self-sufficient and eliminate reliance on various outside products and services, there’s no better feeling in the world. However, there are a many things you will no longer do after you become an urban homesteader.
