The busier we get, the more we seem to seek a time when life wasn’t so fast. A movement toward a simple yet flavorful lifestyle, often associated with the term “homesteading,” is growing more popular all the time. And it’s not just rural farm-types that are leading the charge. People from all walks of life, including professionals from the suburbs to city-dwelling urbanites are looking to raise their own chickens, grow their own organic food, can and preserve the harvest, and other practices more commonly associated with the activities of our parents and grandparents.
In this episode, we go behind the scenes with one of the country’s leading contemporary urban homesteaders, Theresa Loe, to learn more about what’s behind this exploding trend. It all happens from her own tiny Los Angeles homestead, where’s she all about fresh, seasonal and locally-sourced flavor.
