    Congratulations and lucky listeners. Many more people will now hear another way to look at life and eating.
    For anyone who gets cable TV: Green Channel is showing a series about a Canadian town who try to live the “100 Mile Diet” for a month. The authors lived it for a year. If you don’t cook or pay attention to where food comes from and how, it can be a HUGE wake up call.
    For self sufficient types it can still be an education and a challenge. Still it never ceases to amaze me how many people think food just magically appears in their local store and that “heating” is not the same as “cooking” a meal. i wish them all luck and fun.

    Just saw Homegrown at the Planet in Focus Festival in Toronto today. I was totally blown away by everything you have accomplished and look forward to following your progress in the future. I am already eyeing my backyard and figuring out how I can expand my teeny raised bed veggie patch. Thanks so much for sharing your story, I really appreciated your candor and pioneer spirit!
