Getting Dirty: The Joy Of Growing Food In Your Own Backyard with Rachel Kaplan

The Urban Homesteading Movement is a do-it-yourself people’s movement that is happening all around the country, where people with no previous experience of farming are starting to grow their own food, and take care of what we think of as farm animals, chickens, goats, bees, rabbits, and quail. Rachel Kaplan says of this movement, “People are learning to preserve and keep their bounty in ways that were once traditional and common place, but have lost their appeal in our ‘convenient’ culture. This is not only a food movement, but also a movement of people, who are about conservation of energy, water, and waste. It is a movement of learning to live with less impact on the earth, and with a greater sense of what it means to be part of the place where we live, and to be thinking ecologically.”
