Homegrown: Growing 6000 pounds of food on 1/4 of an urban acre

Homegrown is the inspiring true story of the amazing Dervaes family who are living off the grid in the heart of urban Pasadena, California. They harvest over 6,000 pounds of produce on less than a quarter of an acre while running a popular website that is known around the world. The film is an intimate human portrait of what itʼs like to live like Little House on the Prairie in the 21st Century.

The family is quite web savvy with four websites, Path to Freedom, Peddler's Wagon, a social networking site Freedom Gardens and Little Homestead in the City.

The DVD is available for purchase now, but the film is also on the festival circuit, so keep an eye out for it.
