Centralized Food System
Our food supply chain is fragile and is under immense pressure due to worldly events. Certain areas are affected more than others, but we are all at risk.
Chemicals & Poisons
Our food supply chain relies on the use of toxic chemicals. Often, we do not know what we are consuming when we purchase from the grocery store.
Harsh on Environment
Food is trucked around in order to get to your mouth. It is also harvested using equipment that utilizes energy that is not clean or renewable.
BENEFITS OF GROWING YOUR OWN FOOD
There are countless reasons to grow your own food but here are the top three
Know what goes in and on your food by choosing your soil and how you manage pests.
Grow food without the use of harsh and toxic chemicals.
Grow your own food and control where it comes from. If there is a food shortage, be prepared.
Be in control of the source of food and be prepared for self-sufficiency
NUTRITION & TASTE
Food has more nutrition when picked directly from the plant and eaten fresh.
It will also be the freshest and best tasting.
WHAT IS PERMACULTURE?
The growth of agricultural ecosystems in a self-sufficient and sustainable way. Permaculture draws inspiration from nature to develop synergetic farming systems based on crop diversity, resilience, natural productivity & sustainability
WHAT ARE FOOD FORESTS & EDIBLE LANDSCAPES?
A food forest is a strategically designed and planted area that mimics patterns found in nature in order to provide a sustainable food source at home.
They are low maintenance food production systems that incorporate fruit / nut trees,
shrubs, herbs, vines, and perennial vegetables.
