I don’t usually make mention of when I edit or remove links on the site, but today I am. I’ve removed the link to Little Homestead in the City, run by the Dervaes family. I used to enjoy reading about their experiences as urban homesteaders – that is, until they decided to make it impossible for others just like them to freely talk about being urban homesteaders themselves when the decided to file for a trademark on the phrases “urban homestead” and “urban homesteading”. They certainly didn’t invent the concept or coin the phrase. And being located in Pasadena, they’re more suburban Los Angeles than city… but the real point here is the infringment on everyone’s else rights. You should make your own decision on whether they’re in the right or the wrong here, but it seems pretty clear to me. The Facebook group Take Back Urban Home-steading has a lot of good info, so I encourage you to check it out and get informed about this issue.
