Because I’m going on the road today to visit my children, I’m not going to spend a lot of time on the internet. So here’s my suggestion: spend the time you may have spent reading my blog checking out this website.
This family is amazing. They settled in an urban house in Pasadena in 1985 and converted it to a working small farm that produces nearly all of their food and subsistence needs, including biodiesel, clothing, health care products, and much more. They now have an institute and do educational outreach all over the country. Having lived in Southern California myself for 11 years, I find this fascinating. I hope you’re inspired.
