“In Zen there are only two things: you sit, and you sweep the garden.  It doesn’t matter how big the garden is.” -Oda Sesso, Gary Snyder’s teacher, excerpted from The Gary Snyder Reader: prose, poetry, and translations, 1952-1998, page 111.

  1. Screw “Path to Freedom”, the Urban Homestead Facists. Do some research on Urban Homestead and copyright infringement and you’ll find them at the heart of a great controversy that even threatens the publishing and marketing of ‘The Urban Homestead’ book.

    10. Be a good NEIGHBOR.

    Be conscious and considerate of your surroundings – ask yourself, “Would I want to live next to me?” Offer a helping hand for free. Urban homesteading is a community-based way of life, not a business opportunity. Be a neighbor, not a business person.
