A while ago I came across this trailer about a family living in the middle of suburbia who is literally self sufficient. Infact they grew 45 tons of vegetables on their typical suburban lot! It truly is amazing and inspiring. I have planted a garden this year that won’t come close to this but hey, you have to start somewhere right?
They have made a movie about it and it is called the Homegrown Revolution you can check out the trailer. I assure you it will cause you to look differently at our use of land in city centers.
Check out their story at Path to Freedom.com and be inspired to create your own freedom from the conventions of society that we have been led to believe is the only way.
