Urban Gardening Insures This California Family’s Survival

Survival gardening is gardening that takes on a new sense of urgency and purpose. You might grow potatoes instead of petunias. When you garden for survival, you’re making a statement–a declaration of independence–concerning our food supply.

That’s just what one California family has done. And they’re doing quite well at it. Below is a mini-documentary about how the Dervaes have turned their California home into an urban survival garden.

They took action, one step at a time. The end result is well worth it. They’re selling to high end restaurants and making money at it. And they’re eating wholesome, healthful food themselves.

What they’ve done isn’t an overnight sensation. So if you’re thinking of urban gardening, start small, and don’t let yourself get overwhelmed. And, by the way, don’t we all wish we had Southern California weather?
