Growing your own


 

Feeling good about your work to become more self-sufficient? As I am building out our food forest (photos soon), I was feeling a bit smug about it actually. Until I took the time to think through the 100 foot challenge. Yikes. We’ve got a long way to go.

But growing your own food is worthwhile, and it is radical. One of my new favorite quotes is from Jules Dervaes, the urban farmer and founder of Path to Freedom.

“Growing food in one of the most dangerous occupations on the face of this earth, because you are in danger of becoming free.”
