Call or email to set up an appointment between December 12th and the 17th to meet with you on your property to discuss what we do and how we might be able to work together for the coming year to help you create a productive and healthy space for you, your family, your neighbors, and your friends.  We will be taking on a limited number of new sites this year, so respond quickly if you wish to be part of the select few that will be having our gardens installed on your site.

Joel Salatin: War Stories from the Local Food Front

The Broken Food System

A conference held in Australia about the politics of food issues and their impact on small sustainable farms.  Joel Salatin talks about the broken food system established shortly after the end of WWII.  With the large scale production of NPK (nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium) went the normal process of creating compost on farms.  Ushering in chemical dependent farms and industrial food at artificially low prices.  

The rest of the video lives on another site and will open a new window.
