A bit about me:
Hi! My name's John. In the past few years after taking college courses in culinary arts, nutrition, and food safety I increasingly became interested not only in preparing food, but how it is produced and where it comes from. This started me on a journey of discovery and exploration. The deeper I got into finding out how our everyday food is produced, the more I realized how much further removed from the entire process we really are. I am currently trying to live a healthier and more sustainable lifestyle. From being a city boy, to now raising chickens and rabbits and growing my own herbs and vegetables in my ever expanding garden, I feel as if I am going down a path that brings me closer to my food. It has truly made me happier. I love all the information I have learned from so many great people and all the things I am able to share and help others with who are just starting out.
Latest greatest meal cooked at home:
Its hard to say because I cook all the time.
Currently reading:
"Mini Farming" and " The New Victory Garden"
Currently listening to:
The tea pot boiling
My latest DIY project:
An indoor grow system to get a jump start on spring

Hi, John. Welcome to HOMEGROWN! My name is Jennifer, and I’m the flock tender here: site updater and tweaker, feeder and waterer of content. I’m so glad you found us. We love getting our HOMEGROWN mitts on folks who care about good food, and it sounds like you’ve been on quite a journey these last few years. I hope you’ll turn up plenty of projects and ideas here to spur you on, and I hope you’ll be game for sharing some of your own too—more on your path to becoming healthier and more sustainable and happier, please!—in our member blog, The Stew. Elsewhere on HOMEGROWN, you can always find the latest additions to the site at the top of the homepage, and if you’ve ever got a question, please don't hesitate to leave a comment on my profile page or shoot me a message. I hope you feel right at home!
