5 Pinterest Favorites for the Urban Farmer

4 Flares 4 Flares ×

Every month I will be highlighting 5 Favorite Pinterest Pins. In April, I chose these favorites. This month, I am choosing 5 Pinterest Favorites for the Urban Farmer in honor of our week long stay in Denver.

Not everyone is reading from the same place. Some of us are in the beautiful country side while others of us spend our days in the city. What brings us together are our interests: our want for less, to learn more, to do more ourselves.

So while we’re visiting Denver, I thought what a great time to highlight all the beauty that can be found in the urban homestead!

Although these favorites are said to be for the Urban Farmer, these are great finds for aspiring urban and rural farmers alike. Enjoy!

Do you have any Pinterest favorites you’d like to share?

I’d love to hear what you’re finding. I already know that if my garden survives the harsh desert summer, I will owe Pinterest a little bit of credit. To see more of my finds, follow me on Pinterest.
