Best of Web Monday, and today I throw to the Urban Homestead project, of Pasadena, CA.

The Urban Homestead is the effort of the Dervaes family to live self sufficiently on their tiny little 1/10th of an acre suburban lot.

As part of the Urban Homestead, the Dervaes family gardens, keeps livestock and bees, and even powers their Mercedes with veggie diesel!

Super cool.

In reality, many of us live in the urban/suburban world. While we might not be able to raise cattle, many of us could incorporate some of what the Dervaes family is doing on the Urban Homestead.

You guys know of any other projects like this?
