Welcome to the 8th & Bee Homestead, our slice of urban food forest homestead-goodness. We rent a single-family home on an approximately 1/8th acre lot in Petaluma, CA.
The 1928 Craftsman home was previously owned by George and Mary Reynolds for more than four decades, where they raised a family and were pillars of our community. When we previously lived in this West Petaluma neighborhood, we knew George to be an avid gardener. After his passing a couple years back, the gardens gave way to landscaping rock for easy maintenance.
We moved in on September 1st, 2014 and adopted the property’s three mature fruit trees, a few feral bushes and random greenery — and a whole lot of little rocks. 🙂 From that, we’ve built a thriving food forest and homestead project that’s brought us together with so many wonderful neighbors and hopefully provided a model of food fertility and self-reliance.
Ours is a great model for renters like us, a space with the leeway to grow food and homestead, working within some constraints. Here’s a quick visual tour. If you’re in the neighborhood, stop on by! We love talking about the space. 🙂
Tiffany does frequent look-ins on the hive using Periscope and regularly documents her hive dives with her GoPro camera. You can see the footage on our YouTube channel (coming soon).
At the Edges
One of the core concepts of permaculture is to find form and function all the way to the edges of your space and beyond. Situated on a corner lot, we have 100+ of sidewalk-adjacent strip outside of our fence. When we moved in — all weeds, dead grass, and doggy pit stop.
