This Farm Grows Over 6,000 Pounds Of Food A Year Out Of An Urban Homestead

When children receive food from their parents, they don't question where it came from, as they merely see it as "food from their parents." Jules Dervaes realized this harsh reality in 1985 when taco shells he bought were being recalled due to being made with genetically modified corn. He didn't learn about the recall until he and his children had already eaten them. Today, he and his family live in Pasadena, California, just 15 minutes away from downtown Los Angeles. However, his home looks nothing like the ones surrounding it. Named the Urban Homestead project, Jules and his family have done the impossible - turning a small home in the city into a working micro-farm.
