We are an urban homestead based on natural, holistic and sustainable principles. Our livestock includes chickens & honey bees and we cultivate fruits, vegetables and kitchen herbs.
I’ve been researching lots of other blogs out there and have come across a lot of good things. One idea in particular, that appeals to me and applies to our virgin Urban Homestead is a Plan. And to add to that would be a schedule – scheduling is a huge part of my day job (I supervise a team of Architects & Project Managers who manage Design & Construction projects for the Federal Government). So, this post will be about the 7hh-G Urban Homestead 5 Year Plan. I believe it will be helpful to put down and review the interests and projects for our Urban Homestead for a number of reasons. One good reason for planning is to know how much funding is going to be needed. Another reason is that I’ve come to see how inter-related our projects are; some projects have to be in place before others can be started. Growing seasons and maturation of some plants are also issues to be considered.
So here goes some initial thoughts on a 5 Year Plan.
Year 01 – 2014
Year 02 – 2015
Year 03 – 2016
Year 04 – 2017
Year 05 – 2018
Looking back after completing the Plan, Year 01 may be too ambitious. More posts to come as this Plan is refined.
