Growing like a weed, so it is time to transplant. (We’re moving.)

Breaking Urban Ground is already feeling the confines of this Blog site and we needed to migrate to another site to make some changes. I would like to invite all our friends, fans, visitors, followers and anyone who stumbles upon this site to join us at our new site.

At the new BreakingUrbanGround.com we will be exploring the same things as they relate to making ourselves more self-reliant at our own pace and with our own resources.

At the new site please sign up for the V.I.P. email list. We will be collecting names until Monday April 22nd for a drawing. Five lucky people will be sent an email with instructions on how to get access to our first iPad Newsstand magazine for free. We are very excited to share this with you and are already gearing up for future issues.

You can also send us pictures of your Breaking Urban Ground Projects. They can fall into these major categories.

Animals:

Show us your chickens, bees, rabbits, worms(worm compost projects) goats and others.

Alternate power:

Battery storage, home wind generator, solar projects, rain storage. Any utility you provide for yourself.

Food Production:

Canning successes, canning failures, dehydrated foods, cheese making, syrup, yogurt. What food did you make?

Gardening:

Your urban garden, community gardens you participate in, Veggies you grew or are growing, unusual crops, your first plant. If it is growing for food we want to see pictures.

Household Stuff:

Planter projects, a trellis you made, detergent, candles, beeswax lip balm, a bat house. This is the “construction zone”.

Preparedness:

This is more of an action than a “thing” so let’s see first aid kits, group pictures of your CPR certification class, your 72 hour kit. Help me with ideas for this category photos.

Storage:

How do you maximize your space. Lets see creative ways to manage what you have. Shelves you built, basement root cellars, serious spice cabinets.

Don’t forget to tell us about the picture. A picture of canned carrots is nice but information on who made them and a little background is better.

With all of this be sure to include the kids. Breaking Urban Ground includes all people learning to provide for themselves as they have interest. The entire family can be included. My kids don’t like gardening but love to make cheese. If your kids like doing something send pictures of their projects too.

We are all about learning. Learning includes mess-ups and failures. Send pictures of these and some info on what you learned from the experience and what you will do differently next time.

Sending your photos to Ideas@BreakingUrbanGround.com constitutes permission to use or not use the photos in future issue and articles and on the Breaking Urban Ground website and social media affiliations. Don’t send us pictures if they are not your own or you do not have authorization to distribute them.

Please join the fun at the new site. This can be a great spring if we make it one.
