Self Sufficient Living in the Heart of the City
Self Sufficient Living in the Heart of the City

Ever wondered how you could go "back to the land" while retaining the comforts of your urban apartment?

You're in luck because an everyday revolution is being revived in part by people like Kelly Coyne and Erik Knutzen. They are the creators of the blog homegrownrevolution.org, and they just came out with the second edition of their popular book, The Urban Homestead: Your Guide to Self-Sufficient Living in the Heart of the City. It covers everything you could possibly want to do in your own apartment, from DIY solar power to brewing beer.

Yes, going "back to the land" inside the city is entirely possible -- and you may gain a new perspective along the way.
