Real Food Security Yard by Yard

A movement to connect and build local food community. If we want real food security and affordable nutrient dense food, we need to be farming our yards! I love what I am learning here and inspired by Linda's pioneering efforts!

Crisses ,

Way to grow!

When's the last road trip where you had to wipe the bugs off your windshield? Have you looked at the country of origin on the bags and berry cases in the supermarket? Are your food bills going up?

Go farm! There's grass in your yard eating up valuable time and resources and if you don't have a lawn, your school, church, workplace, library, etc. are waiting for some lettuce. Save the world and farm-a-yard!
