Right now, most of us couldn’t feed ourselves to save our lives. And that’s a big deal. What we do eat, we outsource to commercial producers who aren’t worried about our health.
Our civilization needs a lot more structure for growing our own food.
That’s my top objective with Homegrown: give people everywhere—especially high-risk communities—access to healthy, locally grown food. Food grown by their own neighbors—the ones who are already great at gardening! Because, let’s face it: many people love to garden, but would be grossly incapable of predictably feeding ourselves from our current capabilities. 😅 (I’m including myself in this category!)
There’s a knowledge gap there, which can be closed through education & experience—which presents a huge opportunity to empower the best residential growers to produce more food than they need for their own families, both feeding and teaching their neighbors and neighboring communities.
Those highly productive hobby gardeners could scale themselves and help lead a nationwide food revolution. And they want to. I’ve exchanged messages with many of these folks through Facebook groups, who say they’d love to work on more land and teach folks if they had access to it.
That’s why I am starting to learn how to apply for & receive government grants: to access land & materials, to empower these experienced gardeners. With more resources at their disposal, they could become our country’s primary source of healthy nutrition and help revive a culture of victory gardens, community homesteading, and basic needs met for all.
