Small Steps. BIG Impact

The current urban sustainability movement is a positive trend in American society.
It has the potential to revitalize families and, thus, towns in our long tradition of self-sufficiency and independence.

“In our society growing food ourselves has become the most radical of acts.
It is truly the only effective protest, one that can —and will — overturn the corporate powers that be.
By the process of directly working in harmony with nature,
we do the one thing most essential to change the world — we change ourselves.”

- Jules Dervaes Jr, Founder (1947-2016)
