How To Be An Apartment Homesteader

Can you homestead in an apartment or in a house in town?

If you've been wondering how to get started as a homesteader - but you're living in the middle of an apartment in town, you're at the right place.

Homesteading, to far too many minds, requires forty acres, a barn full of livestock and fields of produce.

What about city and apartment dwellers? Must they simply wait until they're "out on the land" or is it possible for urban people to homestead?
Homestead in an apartment or in an urban house. No matter where you live, get control of your food, energy and other resources!
When we began our homesteading journey, we asked the same questions.

Our apartment was within walking distance of downtown, in a rough, low income area of a large Canadian city. Converted from an old parking garage, that basement unit lacked almost any natural light but made up for it in ants and mice.

Living there, I joked that a benefit of living in a slum apartment was the safe feeling caused by an almost constant police presence.

Homesteading does not require acres of land and a barn of livestock. In CAN, of course, but many homesteaders live in apartments! It's definitely possible.


As I discussed in my post defining homesteading, there is nothing in the definition that requires a garden, livestock or even land.

Homesteading is about taking control of your food, the energy you use, the resources that you employ. It is about pursuing a life of self-sufficiency and an awareness of your impact on the world.

Wherever you are, whatever you have, you can get started now. Are you ready to find out some of the surprising ways you can homestead - no matter where you live?
