Schell urban Homestead

BlogHer Original Post

Our family blog as we journey into and adventure through an agrarian lifestyle in the middle of the city.  We are all about living naturally, finding ways to "green up" our home, garden, friends and family.  Urban homesteading is the concept of making the most of what you have… we wish we had a farm, but we live in Denver, so we raise chickens in the back yard instead. 

We are interested food and all aspects of it, from major agri-business practices, to what ends up on our plates.  We are avid gardeners.  We are for natural childbirth and breastfeeding, and we struggle with the current state of healthcare in the U.S.  And we also enjoy finding creative ways to save money, since our family of four makes it work on one income. 

I guess, to summarize, this is a crunchy family blog with a few crazy chickens thrown in for fun!
