Welcome to our "homestead" in the city
We're bold, gold, and getting a little old.
Hi! We’re Lisa and Anthony, two rapidly aging green thumbs working a 1/4-acre plot tucked between two apartment buildings. Our mission is to bring you gardening and garden-based eating stories here at empire’s end. We believe you don’t have to wait until you can buy land to learn valuable skills and put homesteading practices into place. Yes, even if all you have right now is a balcony!
If this sounds like your cup of (herbal) tea, welcome. You’ve found your people. Sign up for helpful advice on gardening and garden-based eating for autoimmune conditions and more, free recipes, sourdough support, and food-preservation tips. You’ll get weekly posts and podcasts, and you can join our chat community and most comment threads.
There’s a lot of homesteading advice on the Internet. Why should you trust ours? We cut through the compost and get you results. Take her word for it:
Most homesteaders have acreage, a barn or two, and livestock. We’re limited by age and location, just like you.
No ads, no pop-ups, no holds barred. Readers like you fund this effort.
