The Self Reliant Household: Potluck and Discussion with Urban Homesteading Blogger Erik Knutzen
Erik Knutzen blogs at www.homegrownevolution.com and is the co-author, with his wife Kelly Coyne, of "The Urban Homestead" (Process Media 2008) and the upcoming "Making It: Radical Home Economics for a Post-Consumer World" (Rodale 2011). Erik also writes for magazines, including Make and Urban Farm. Erik has become increasingly interested in the concept of urban sustainability since moving to Los Angeles in 1998. Since that time, he has converted a 1920 hilltop bungalow into a mini-farm, and along the way has explored and written about the traditional home arts of baking, pickling, bicycling and brewing. He will give a review of the new home economics, everything from chickens to vegetables, to bees to booze, what plants he's grown and what plants he's killed. He will discuss specific living strategies gained from his experience, review the economics of this lifestyle and talk about the concept of "citizen science" in regard to crafting a more thoughtful, sustainable and sensible home.
