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.
My wife and I have been planning things for our backyard for what seems like forever – I’m a designer/builder and designed and built our home here in Downtown Albuquerque, NM. Over the past 10+ years here, we’ve completely planted and maintained our front yard but have not made much progress with the back.
So these plans for our backyard have officially become plans to create our very own urban homestead.
We have many interests when it comes to creating our micro-farm and the following words best describe our approach: sustainable, beyond organic and regenerative.
Areas of interest:
An additional source for following our progress with our urban homestead is at the Facebook page “REAL food Garden & Apiary“.
Causing dialogue and eliciting responses about living design while presenting various observations for critique, consideration, solutions and some good humor!
