Get Your Hands Dirty

May 9, 2016

Sustainable Agriculture & Gardening: Where we get our hands dirty and common sense becomes more common.

Tiny & Kenny talk gardening (soil types, types of food to grow in your area), growing your own food, sustainable agriculture, the art of self reliance. Challenges faced with planting a garden, both locally, and for everybody. This skill can be life saving, and you don’t want to wait until there IS an emergency, to learn how to sustain. It’s gardening season, get your tails outside and your hands dirty!

Pros:

-Save Money…a LOT of money (somewhere around 40% of your food cost is paying for transportation!)
-Peace of mind in knowing where your food comes from
-Nutrition
-Being able to sustain on your own
-To teach your kids and family TO sustain on your own.

Cons:

-None

….though, not to say this won’t come with the occasional frustration and try on your patience, but that’s what we’re here for!

Helpful information about what to plant and when to plant by zone can be found on the USDA’s National Gardening Association website. This also has how-to videos, a weed library, pest control, and more!

Find your local extension office for more help with your soil! Through its county agents, the Cooperative Extension Service gives individuals access to the resources at land-grant universities across the nation. These universities are centers for research in many subjects, including entomology (the study of insects) and agriculture. Each county within the United States has an Extension office, which is staffed with agents who work closely with university-based Extension specialists to deliver answers to your questions about gardening, agriculture, and pest control.
