Join Today’s Victory Garden Movement! An Old Idea for a New Era
A permaculture solution to food and pollution!
Backyard gardens, community gardens, school gardens, windowsill gardens--they all count.
If you are already a gardener, be a "Companion Planter" and encourage a new gardener through advice, seedlings and other get-started help.
With the corporate production of our food, the quality suffers as does the land the crops are grown on and the pollution created through the spraying and burning of fossil fuels to grow and transport our food.
To get good and especially organic food the costs are high and rising. In a time of global food shortages and high fuel costs it is becoming not only economical but crucial to grow a large percentage of your own food at home or to support the local farmers that do. Even apartment dwellers and urban homesteaders can do some container gardening to bring some home grown organic food to the table.
Organic gardening will change the national paradigm creating a permanent and sustainable culture...Permaculture!
There are many things you can do today to help reduce your carbon foot print; from saving electricity to driving fewer miles or conserving water.

Most food is grown with diesel burning
tractors, sprayed with oil based chemicals and trucked 1500 to 3000
miles on diesel trucks from field to table.
That’s a long way and quite the carbon foot print.
an organic garden has to be one of the most enjoyable ways to walk off
your carbon foot print, and it has great side effects!
