Growing much of your own food is a great way to know exactly what you are putting in your body, can be extremely environmentally friendly and can be an excellent way to earn some income. Surprisingly to many, this can be effectively done at your home/residential premises. Our backyard and available shed space is much bigger than most people will have available at their home, but that doesn’t matter because everyone can grow some of their own food at home, even if you live in a unit.
Us and mum grow a wide variety of crops for fun, our own consumption and to help our business make some money. We don’t use any chemicals, herbicides or pesticides in our yard. If we have problems with pests or growing certain crops we look for environmentally friendly solutions. We aim to only do what is good for us and the planet.
Us and Mum plan to also work closely with native plants (edibles, seeds, seedlings and established), have some free range chickens, ducks and geese and grow a variety of crops including;
- Herbs & Spices
- Garlic and ginger
- Lettuces, kale, greens, beans etc. (like dads but scaled up a few times)
Us and Mum plan to distribute anything that we don’t eat locally to restaurants and via local food boxes once or twice a week. Eating locally grown produce is a great way to do your bit for the environment by reducing food miles and it is the easiest way to ensure you are giving your taste buds and body the freshest food.
Us and Mum are passionate about residential farming and want to share with as many people as possible the endless benefits. We run tours and classes for fun, and to help like minded people learn some residential farming techniques. Us and Mum can also help with garden design and construction.
