Grass. We spend countless hours and dollars mowing and maintaining it over the course of our lifetimes.
Some estimates show that in the United States alone, we have over 40.5 million acres of land in lawns. And we spend almost $2.2 billion in pesticides for home and garden use, not to mention all the fuel and equipment needed to keep it all neat and tidy. Could this be the definition of insanity?
While many are going hungry and our nation’s health is declining, our grass thrives. It is time to think differently.
The Yardener describes in words and pictures a simple solution to stop the insanity and turn your yard into food security. As The Yardener says,
“This is how to create REAL health security. It’s time to stop consuming and start producing!”
I am on a quest to turn as much of my lawn into bountiful food production, keeping enough grassy area for the kids to play in and a source material for the chicken soil building plan. I invite you to join me in this quest.
