Anyone with a fire escape, windowsill, small yard or working kitchen can grow, preserve, and enjoy sustainable food. Renee Wilkinson's practical and beautiful new handbook, Modern Homestead: Grow, Raise, Create (Fulcrum), includes creative projects, building plans, recipes, and even directions for green cleaning and pest control—all for those living an urban lifestyle on a budget and in tight quarters. She visits today to talk about urban homesteading, answer questions, and inspire to plant a window box, raise chickens, make fig jam, and get to know your neighbors. Renee Wilkinson is a sixth-generation gardener and homesteader, creator of the website, HipChickDigs, and gardens a small plot in Portland.
