When Blume was establishing her garden in Oakland, she realized that the Bay Area was lacking a place for people interested in urban farming and traditional homesteading to come together and learn. That led her to found the Institute of Urban Homesteading nine years ago.The institute now offers 50 to 75 classes a year, with 10 or so people attending each class. People pay what they can afford, and classes are taught by instructors on subjects ranging from fermenting to planting a backyard orchard. Sharkey met Blume through a cheese-making class at the institute, where she now teaches classes on raising goats. The institute sponsors the garden tour on which Stewart is featured.
