Eating fresh local food


It’s time to start growing vegetables and herbs at home, it’s even more important this year here in the USA with the terrible drought in California that has cut water usage by 25%.

The most effective is the Square Foot Garden method invented by Mel Bartholomew. We will be interviewing Mel on our podcast very soon. You can find his book Square Foot gardening – A new way to garden in less space with less work at any good book store.

Square Foot Gardening

For those who do not have a garden space, our latest interview on our podcast at www.growingtrends.org is for you.

Ann and I were privileged to interview Nellie, she is a young mother who is passionate about eating fresh produce on a low budget.

Our interview is inspiring for those who want to find the best way to eat local fresh food.  Nellie will explain how to balance your budget and yet find good healthy fresh food.

This is one very astute lady, who is passionate about food – she happens to be a good cook too.
