We’re Chris and Kara Carrero. We’re currently living in an urban environment in Boston, MA. But we dream of one day being on some sort of expansive piece of land that lets our children roam with a little more freedom and allows life to slow down and be a bit more manageable.
We have 4 kids and a dog. They’re all super sweet, incredibly sneaky, and a huge mess. We homeschool, have a 600 square foot garden and growing, and are always looking to turn our quarter acre into something more sustainable.
This is an effort chronicle our life on an urban homestead… and maybe our move to a rural one too. A memory book for our children and a way to connect with others too.
Kara is a Master Urban Gardener, former teacher, mother, cook, author, and more.
Chris is an Engineer, handy man, and the “make it happen” in our family.
