I wanted to grow my own food, not only because I thought it would make me more self-reliant, give me more choices about my nutrition, not because I thought it would be easy and inexpensive, not because I was frustrated by the lack of selection of food on supermarket shelves, no I wanted to grow my own food because I live in the USA in NJ where we have the best soil in the world. I had spent time in the developing world where everyone grew their own and I didn’t know how to do anything least of all grow my own food. I doubted it was even legal to grow ones own food in suburban NJ but I wanted to try anyway. So that’s how it started for me. By the way when I started this project, none of my friends knew how to grow their own food either.
