How does an Emmy Award winning producer end up living in a chicken coop? Jeannine Glista, creator of the PBS series, Biz Kids has a new how-to media series in the works, The Urban Homesteader and it all began on her farm. The new series teaches people how to turn their small, urban space into a modern homestead. The Urban Homesteader is about growing food, raising livestock, preserving, DIY projects, and conserving energy…..all in the city! To kick off the program Glista and her team have launched a crowdfunding campaign with Indiegogo, who showcased their project at SXSW.
