Want to get in on the edible front and backyard trend? If you're tired of paying to water your lawn -- AND of paying premium prices for organic produce at Whole Foods, the latest issue of Los Angeles magazine might give you the push you need to put your land into better use while saving some money!
Features have the lowdown on livestock laws in L.A.-area cities (many ban roosters), eight great local plant nurseries, and a profile of The Dervaes Family, homesteaders in Pasadena, Calif., who not only grow all their own food but also have chickens, ducks -- and cute pet goats!
I can’t decide between the Rex or the Holland Lop, but the cute photos of these bunnies in the latest issue of Los Angeles magazine almost makes me want to raise urban livestock on my little apartment balcony! Unfortunately, that practice is likely illegal -- I just don't have enough space. But if you do have a little land to call your own and don't yet get any food out of it, pick up the issue -- or browse it online -- for edible gardening inspiration and starter tips!
