Experimental Station in the Chicago Reader
Check out Martha Bayne's piece on urban homesteader Erik Knutzen. As you may know, Erik came to visit us in May and talked about his life and work in Los Angeles. He and his wife Kelly Coyne write for their blog www.homegrownrevolution.com, and recently came out with a book, The Urban Homestead: Your Guide to Self-sufficent Living in the Heart of the Metropolis. It's a general how-to guide for a wide variety of subjects: making and preserving your own food, cooking with solar energy, and grey-water plumbing. Martha Bayne came with Erik to his talk here at the Experimental Station, and we get a brief mention towards the end of the article - as do our four young chickens!
