Path to Freedom is a grassroots, family-operated urban homestead located in the heart of Pasadena, California. Surrounded by urban sprawl and just a short distance from a major freeway, the Dervaes family has steadily transformed an ordinary 66' x 66' city lot into a lush, organic and sustainable micro-farm teeming with butterflies, edible flowers and even chickens, ducks and goats! This modern, electronic-media savvy family are neither anachronistic farmers nor Luddites: they chronicle their homesteading lifestyle on YouTube, Twitter, Facebook and MySpace. They also run several websites and business ventures online: Dervaes Gardens sells produce locally, Peddler's Wagon for eco-goods, Freedom Seeds sells non-GMO and open-pollinated seeds and the nonprofit Dervaes Institute and community outreach programs support their pioneering lifestyle while educating the public. Healing Our World salutes this inspiring family for taking a stand and walking the talk.
