As for your prohibition about line-drying clothes: Can you hang some of your clothes in the light of those hot windows that you mentioned with a fan on them? Not too attractive but who cares if you don’t have company coming over. Might save a dollar here and there.
I am guessing that by living in town you are saving on transportation? I live out where I can grow stuff but I also have to travel 74 miles a day for work – not real sustainable. The trade off is probably not worth it but it is what is available to me.
If you do want to grow stuff there may be community gardens you can get involved with.
Check out our many forums here and look into the regional section – you may find permies living right in your area.
You guys haven't done this much, have ya? I suggest you study this tiny ad:
