herbivora - When I read your post one website came to mind: http://urbanhomestead.org/.  It's a family of four that built a self-sustaining farm (with chickens and goats!) on a small urban lot. They're completely self-sufficient and actually sell surplus to the local community. You can check a short film about them here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7IbODJiEM5A. I found it fascinating what they've been able to do with little space! Sorry you're having a hard time with finances. I don't have any good advice that others didn't mention already: see if you can find old discarded bath tubs, barrels or any kind of container. Perhaps old furniture? As you're vegan you probably already rely on this but when I was trying to cut costs, I used a lot of dry legumes (they're cheap and rich with nutrients/protein as long as they are soaked properly before hand). I don't know how it is Canada but here dried legumes are much cheaper when we get them in big batches from middle-eastern stores than from the regular supermarket.

That urban homestead is pretty awesome. This morning there is quite the lighting storm going on around me.  Spring is really here in Michigan! I can't wait to plant things in my neighborhood community garden.

I'm sorry, Mylah.  I'm so glad your husband is a rock- hold on tight to him.  Blessings on your family.

hmm...is there a way to delete a post?  I meant this as a reply to an earlier post.  Sorry, new to all this.
