Hi, I’m Marc!
I am a gardener, woodworker, husband and father. My passion is to provide for my family by growing high-quality, fresh food.
Over the years I have done traditional gardening and this blog started off as a regular gardening blog. However over the past two summers, my focus has been on growing more and more food and preserving it.
.As I continue to improve food production and learn to become more self-sufficient by also growing herbs to use for medicine and my family’s well-being, I realized that I am moving closer to homesteading. So this blog has moved in that direction as well and the name has changed to Tranquil Garden Urban Homestead.
Homesteading in the city on an urban 1/8 acre lot is not easy due lack of space, strict bylaws and regulations, and the pressure of fitting in homesteading work between my day job, my family and other obligations.
I am very solutions-focussed so as I overcome all of these challenges in my own homestead, my goal is to provide you with the information you need to do the same where you live.
Learn how to plan well, reduce maintenance time and costs, build support structures and grow your own food!
I hope you will join me on the journey in becoming more self-sufficient!
Wishing you all the best in your efforts!
