What is behind the huge trend of vegetable gardens and backyard chickens?
Surprisingly, it is not the higher costs of groceries. A recent survey showed the biggest motivation for 1,598 new gardeners to start growing their own food is food security, says Marjory Wildcraft, creator of the acclaimed tutorial titled “Grow Your Own Groceries,” which contains 2 DVDs and a CD mini-library.
The second biggest motivator was concerns with toxicities in groceries, says Wildcraft. Food costs placed a distant fourth.
“People are concerned about disruptions of the food supply due to economic collapse, pandemics, terror events, or natural disasters,” says Wildcraft. The “Grow Your Own Groceries” video training course is rapidly becoming the standard video training tool and reference source for people who want to learn how to grow food and take control of their food supply.
