This was to be predominantly my project. It felt powerful + possible. I wanted to work the soil...use my body...experience life springing from the land...tend abundant harvest...and feed families, including my own. I read about permaculture and crop rotation and no-till raised beds. I went to workshops on keeping chickens and beekeeping and market gardening. My heroes became Joel Salatin and Jean Martin Fortier and Brooke Salvaggio, all of whom we have had the pleasure of hearing speak. I drank in every word that they wrote, tasted the fruits of their labor, and dreamed big.
A big pot with a place in the sun is the perfect spot to grow some tomatoes or pickling cucumbers. A window box would be perfect for some leafy greens. There is always room to experience the miracle!
