More Awesome Inspiration

This is my favorite video from the Grow series, because the couple is so positive, and their message is so uplifting! Raising quail, chickens, fruits & veggies, and having beehives on the roof are just some of the things working out for this previous car salesman and his wife. One of the best lines from this video: "The car business taught me that money isn't everything. It's about the people that are around you." 


If you haven't done so already, feel free to enter the Kindle Touch giveaway that I posted yesterday. It can also be found under the Giveaways tab at the top of this page. I will be adding another giveaway later this month for a CASH prize! Giving back to our supporters is what we are all about, and this is one of the many ways we can do it. Teaming up with other bloggers allows us to offer a bigger prize amount, which is why we have opted to do that so far, but we will offer our own Mini Farm Sustainability Project giveaways in the future when we have the resources.

Our Indie GoGo campaign has experienced a lull that I am confident we can overcome. I am spreading the word through various social media outlets and through offline sources, and I am asking that you please do the same if you are able. Regardless of the outcome of this campaign, we will proceed with our plans to help people in any way we can. Our plan this year is to help at least 2 families start their own mini farm in addition to developing our own 24 square foot garden project on rented land, although we are also making plans with 2 additional families to help them begin their mini farming journey. For details on these plans, click HERE. Thank you for believing in our cause and for supporting us in any way possible. 

We have used the soil blocker to start our first seeds (onion and celery), and I am working on a video to document our experience. Stay tuned, as I will post an update once it is completed for you to view. I will also add the video to the Documentary tab. 

If you haven't voted in our poll at the bottom right of this site, feel free to cast your vote! Your input is very important to us, and we want you to contact us with feedback about this site and our project in general. If you'd like to help by posting our button on your blog or website, the grab button is located on the righthand column. 

Again, thank you for stopping by and helping us make this project a success! We hope to inspire you on your own journey to live sustainable, healthy lives.

  4. What a good cause, trying to help people start their own "mini farm". Good luck in your efforts to spark people to use their "green thumbs". :)

  6. You know, this is really inspiring. I've been thinking about planting my own garden, and I think I might just do that this year.

  7. This is definitely inspiring! I live in military housing in Hawaii right now where because of past pesticide use, we're not allowed to disturb the soil (scary!), but we're moving soon, and I'm already planning a spring garden :)

  18. I think its a great way for a group of people to make a difference in growing their own food. To me it gives you a sense of pride to grow your own food. Love it.
