About this episode's guest, Kathryn Robles

#432: Tips to Start Your Own Urban Homestead | Kathryn Robles Even from a small age I could be found out wandering the yard, occasionally sampling the dandelions or trying to make rope out of yucca fibers. My first love has always been fantasy books though, and bonus points if thereís some real life survival tips in there. Most often I spent my time outside with a book or a notebook, so writing about gardening and urban homesteading really is a blending of several of my interests!

I grew up in Southern California and am a California girl at heart. The ocean. Love, love, love the ocean I moved away to get my Bachelorís of Science from Brigham Young University, then spent 4 months working in orphanages in Romania before moving to Portland.

My family includes my husband and our four children. In addition to the livestock, we also have a dog and an assortment of cats that like to hog the bed.
