Overview

Where did your last home-cooked meal come from? If you're like most people, it probably came from the supermarket. But do you ever stop to think about where stores get their food? Most people don't. This disconnection from the source of the food we consume has allowed for some pretty unhealthy and unethical things to happen to our food, which is now mostly mass-produced.

It's a lot to think about. And you're probably wondering what you can do about it. Sure, you can buy organic, but what if you could know the source of your food? Or better yet, what if your garden could be that source?

Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year of Food Life by Barbara Kingsolver tells the story of her own family who decided to dramatically change their lives by only eating locally and growing their own food for a year. They packed up their belongings and moved from Arizona to Appalachia to start learning to grow their own food. Kingsolver encourages all of us, even if we can't grow everything we eat, to start doing what we can to source our own food.
