Frequently Asked Questions

Did you know that the secret to health and wellness is right outside your door? Ready to revolutionize your yard and feed your soul?

There were times for us when most of the food our family ate came from a box, package, or drive thru window — times when we let the day-to-day overrule our health and how we showed up in the world.

If that’s you, but you’ve really been craving solutions to live healthier AND make a difference in the world, read on. The solution could be as close as your own front yard.

If you’re like us you’ve probably, at some point (maybe even today!):

  • Started a garden, but things just didn’t grow very well, and you gave up
  • Wanted to be more involved in your community, but stayed inside and flipped on the TV or Facebook because you were tired, overwhelmed, etc.
  • Made a commitment to yourself and your family to eat healthier
  • Wanted to help solve problems like hunger or climate change

 

When neighbors started saying “WHAT is going on with your yard?!?” we knew were on to something.

rain-barrel-640x640In 2014 we leased a home on an 1/8th acre lot with three mature fruit trees — and lots of landscape rock. In a few short months we transformed it into a thriving food forest and turned our corner lot home into a community hub. Not a day went by without us stopping to chat with neighbors or pluck food from the garden that ends up in our meals.

It’s the most joyful act of resilience we could have ever done, until we moved to Nicaragua in 2017. ANd now we are putting down more roots here using these principles.

Maybe you own your home and have a blank canvas, front and back. Maybe you’re like us – renters with some leeway to play around with gardening. Maybe you live in a condo or apartment and your space is limited.

Words of Wisdom: Larry Santoyo

“We’re not gardeners…the garden is a metaphor for the playground where we work. What we really are is soil managers.
—Larry Santoyo, Director, EarthFlow Design Works, and Permaculture Legend

I gathered with 3 neighbors to watch the interview with Singing Frog Farms’ Paul & Elizabeth Kaiser.  That started a whole conversation about our farming methods and we’ve pledged to work 1/2 our field without tilling as a result.  That will represent a lot of greenhouse gas sequestered in the soil! — Joanne L
