Homesteading

"Homesteading" in general translates into a lifestyle of self-sufficiency.

 
Some key features are subsistence farming, food production, canning at home for consumption, among others. To obtain some extra income may also involve the production for sale, on a small scale, of textiles, clothing, crafts, food or livestock.

The followers of this lifestyle often also make use of renewable energy, which features solar and wind energy, to minimize or completely cancel its dependence on commercial energy networks.

Be a conscious choice or a necessity, one of the examples of this style of life in cities are the urban gardens.
