Faith Carr is an old, retired political activist. Started backyard farming for REAL in 2006. And for the first time we ate out of the gardens for all 12 months.
The mission now is to get as many people growing food as possible. Raised beds, containers, or in the dirt. We're building food security in our community. Might be a good idea if ya'll got on that too.
Come the revolution, I'll bring the eats.

We've lost more ground that I ever thought possible. But didn't we know, in our deeply cynical hearts, we were just blowing in the wind? We had more than a "clue" you betcha! But it was the only game in town and we wanted to roll the dice one more time.

Come the end, the last breath, the final rattle of life. I'll not be asking for more.
