The Renegade Farmer is excited and proud to interview Rachel Kaplan and K. Ruby Blume, authors of the forthcoming "Urban Homesteading: Heirloom Skills for Sustainable Living" book. The book, due out in April, explores the world of Urban Homesteading, with advice on various aspects of Urban Farming. 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? Interested in community building and local self-reliance? Looking for resources for taking care of yourself while taking care of the world? "Urban Homesteading" will answer these questions and provides an inspirational how-to and why-to for the urban homesteading movement. Richly illustrated with drawings and photographs, and featuring interviews with homesteaders “on the ground”, Urban Homesteading will give you an introduction to urban permaculture, creating a personal sustainability plan for yourself and your neighborhood, and how-tos on the basics of do-it-yourself ecological living in the city. We will also discuss the recent controversy of the "Urban Homestead" and "Urban Homesteading" trademark, which affects this book, as well as thousands of others who have used those terms for decades.
