Today, I ventured over to our town hall to enquire about the size of our lot. It is an irregular lot, so I couldn't do the math. The woman I was talking to was beyond helpful! She gave me not only the size, but a map of it as well, ideas as to where I should put the fruit trees in the front yard and gave me lots of helpful information. She told me that she is very interested in the concept of urban homesteading. I was SO impressed. Today I am more thankful than I can say that I live in Sidney, where new ideas are embraced.
(By the way, my yard is 605 square metres or .15 acre.)
