What is an Urban Homestead Anyway Have you heard this term Urban homestead. What does that even mean Most people, when they think of a homestead, think of sprawling land, vast fields of growing food, roaming livestock, and self sufficiency. But then you throw the word urban in there, and it creates a whole strange juxtaposition in your mind.
City laws and ordinances can also make things challenging, limiting things like chickens or other animals urban homesteaders may want to raise. If the urban homesteader has an HOA, there could be all kinds of rules keeping them from doing what they would like to with their space. Limits can control what you grow, what you have on your property, even how tall your grass is!
One of the best parts of urban homesteading are the connections you make with your community. Being out in your yard or community garden more often will help you connect more with others and get to know people.
