City Homesteading http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Cityhomestead/ - "City homesteading is slightly different from Country Homesteading, but only because of location, not heart.

Learning to grow and bloom right where we are planted, reducing our debt and learning to save so that someday we may buy our "small bit of earth" in the country if we so chose , and be better prepared to live there. The Skills we learn now will make our lives richer and fuller as we grow our own organic vegetables, raise city livestock, do our own plumbing, electrical, and car repairs."
