“Columbia ‘urban homesteaders’ work to live self-sufficiently”

The Missourian profiles one Columbia couple who are taking “local” very, very seriously:

The Tripletts are part of a movement of “urban homesteaders” attempting to live more self-sufficient lifestyles in the city. For them, this means composting, growing their own food or buying it locally, and walking or biking when possible.

Instead of living on a lot of acreage in the country, the Tripletts manage their sustainable lifestyle on Edgewood Avenue near downtown Columbia.

The Tripletts are also hosting a Meetup July 29 for people interested in urban homesteading and food production.
