The industrial production of meat and dairy requires a tremendous amount of resources.
Refrigeration and transportation over long distances add to the carbon footprint of our food.
Our need for tropical and out-of-season produce impacts valuable and endangered habitat.
Save on emissions: Local production of plant-based food requires a very small carbon footprint.
Save on toxic chemicals: organically produced crops are healthier for humans and for our environment.
Save on costs for disposal and fertilizers: turn kitchen leftovers and garden debris into beautiful nutrient-rich garden soil.
Save our native plant species: forage and eat invasive exotic species to give more vulnerable native species some needed room.
Save on costs for conventional landscaping services: food gardens don’t require weekly mowing, blowing or chemical applications.
