From Tiny Homes to Tiny Homesteads: The Half-Acre Homestead with Lloyd Kahn

Course Overview

It doesn't take a forty acre parcel to create a more sustainable, locally-sourced life: even the urban backyard can become a homestead. A half-acre of land can provide ample space for gardens, chickens, and even bees (but not goats, as you'll learn). Lloyd Kahn should know; he's been doing it for 40 years. In this small group setting, he'll discuss his own homestead, creative solutions he's seen in his travels with Shelter Publications, and what he believes to be the sensible componenents of a small homestead in this day and age.. From growing basil in pots to processing locally harvested animals, any step in the direction of self-sufficiency is deeply satisfying. Bring your ideas and your questions, and leave inspired to create your own half-acre homestead.
