Change the World One Yard at a Time
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” – Margaret Mead
You can really help change the way we eat one yard at a time. By converting your yard — or a group of neighbors’ yards, the church lawn, an empty lot — into an active food garden, you can feed yourself and your family, join together with your neighbors or buy from the yard farmers in your area… start a local food revolution!
Let’s start with a free e-book. When you join the movement and subscribe on our email list, you get this 13-page e-book that introduces you to the concept of yard farming.
“There’s 40 1/2 million acres of lawn in the United States, and kids are going hungry. 40 1/2 million acres, and they say we’re having a food production problem. We use 40% of our potable water on the East Coast just to water lawns! Grass is the largest cultivated crop in the country…taking up more acreage than corn or soy! And last I checked, humans can’t eat grass.” — Linda Borghi
Farm-A-Yard is here to support you with proven methods to care for and nurture food crops. You’re here because you care about food production, you’re concerned about food safety and security, you care about changing the world, and you’re ready to start at home, in your local area.
Farm-A-Yard is taking action to localize our food one yard at a time. This is food grown fresh for your family, to store for lean times or storms, and even generate income in your local community. Don’t want to grow? You can learn more about supporting local yard farmers and buy or barter from them.
We need everyone in this movement! Growers and eaters. Here’s some of the Farm-A-Yard Take ACTION items:
- dig up your yard
- heal your soil
