Here’s a series of videos (total of 40 minutes) by an entrepreneurial Texas gardener who talks about the motivations for storing and growing food and then how to get started. She’s in the Austin area and I was impressed that she has 34,000 gallons of rainwater catchment for her backyard garden and animals. That got my attention. And even though I’m not sure bio-intensive gardening (the Jeavons method) is the proper method for our area, I think it is always of value to listen to someone who has walked the walk. Yes, she’s trying to sell a video and perhaps doesn’t have enough years of homesteading under her belt to qualify as an expert. On the other hand, anyone who is actually doing what she is doing is light years ahead of 99% of the population. Here’s her website which is actually kind of interesting and below her talk in four parts at a book fair in Austin. (I wonder if Marjory Wildcraft is her nom de jardin. I must think of one for myself if I ever want to hit the lecture circuit).
