~~Follow me as I try to lead my family & others towards being self-sustainable, & earth friendly, while tending to my urban farm.~~

As a teenager I left home at a early age to "live life" but that life didn't really start until I had my child and my focus switched to mother mode.

I focused on family and love. I learned about what we were putting into our bodies through medicine and food. I didn't like what I was learning so I changed how we lived.

In a apartment I turned our little 4x4 dirt area into a garden, then when we moved into our house I started transforming our lawn into a food paradise. Raised gardens were installed one at a time, chickens were brought in and raised from 3 day old chicks, dirt was turned and seeds were sown.

We installed fruit trees, and removed many ornamental plants, though we still like our flowers, we worked hard in the hot Florida sun, and what I see when I look outside now is peace, of course we still have much to do and gardening is a never ending project.. your always growing, learning, and expanding

Now we are now working to sustain ourselves on our 1/5 a acre all the while sowing the seeds of family bonds and love.

I have a wonderful husband and a beautiful daughter as well as our ever growing assortment of animals on this urban farm!
