About City Homestead

This blog is an attempt to chronicle our adventures living in a small 1915 bungalow in the heart of Oakland, California. We’ve got a big dog, a little kid, a sprawling garden, and a 98-year-old house near the city’s center that we’re slowly trying to restore and update. Most of the time this blog is about our house and garden, our neighborhood, and our city. Occasionally, I write about bigger picture issues and ideas, usually around urban planning and policy, food systems, or other things I think are fun and interesting.

Questions, comments, or ideas? You can reach me at cityhomestead -at- gmail.
