Growing Healthy People
We educate, motivate, and connect folks with the information necessary to start growing Healthy People
“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 are some of the Farm-A-Yard Take ACTION items:
- dig up your yard
