With spring almost in full swing and Easter coming soon, we prepared a little webinar for anyone who would like to find God in the Garden.

Sign-up on the profile link above! Or on

www.growmyownfood.com/gardening-webinars/

When we observe our gardens we can catch glimpses of paradise in the natural world. The webinar tomorrow is on patterns in nature that are simply fascinating and profound.

Remember to take advantage of this time of quarantine to go on the hikes we might normally have missed because of our previous duties.

And notice all the beautiful bulbs coming up. What do you see out where you are?

While most scientists race to develop anti-coronavirus vaccines, others are studying the molecular compounds in plants that inhibit Covid-19.

Check out our latest blog on that topic: www.growmyownfood.com/natural-antivirals-coronavirus

This fishy herb which in Vietnam is known as Diếp Cá, is currently 1 of 26 herbs considered as a treatment for patients with coronavirus in China.

We currently have a blog article about that on our website at
www.growmyownfood.com/natural-antivirals-coronavirus

This is a particularly good detoxifying and fever-reducing plant. According to a study from the Journal Frontiers of Endocrinology, "Houttuynia cordata (HC) is a medicinal and edible herb with an aromatic smell that has long been used in Asia to treat pneumonia, hypertension, constipation, and hyperglycemia via detoxification, reduction of heat and diuretic action. There is accumulating evidence of multiple pharmaceutical effects of HC, such as anti-cancer (7), anaphylactic inhibitory (8), anti-mutagenic (9), anti-inflammatory (10), anti-allergic (11), anti-oxidative (12), anti-viral (13), anti-bacterial (14), anti-obesity (15), and anti-diabetic (16) activities."

I found a yummy recipe for a fish mint-tofu salad.

I'm going to try that recipe out once these baby plants get growing!

A blessed Sunday to you all!

Our osmia bees have emerged from their cocoons! Osmia bees are "non-stinging bees" that forage their periphery for food and mud that they use to make the homes of their future young. This is why they are also called, "mason bees."

Most of the year, they are asleep in these tubes.

And in our Washington DC area, they come out when the cherry blossoms are in bloom.

We are grateful to them being one of our earliest-season pollinators.

Do you have osmias coming out as well? Tag us so we can share in the delight of seeing these guys emerge!

Snapped @roosterdirtfarm and their trumpet mushrooms @loudounfarmmkts over a week ago.

In places like LA outdoor certified farmers markets are allowed to operate as long as:
food is not prepared on site
there’s no food sampling
crowds are staggered for social distancing and
hand washing stations are provided.

Right now @vabfarming is asking all us to urge Sec Bettina Ring to equate farmers markets with grocery stores during this Covid19 containment.

Go to www.bit.ly/openfarmersmarkets to sign the petition and keep our food supplies open through our local farmers markets which unlike grocery stores are open air.

On behalf of the farmers, Thank you!

None less than the @who has said that "Changes in infectious disease transmission patterns are a likely major consequence of climate change." (From the document, "Climate Change & Human Health)

Just like Melody Wright who is fighting on two fronts, we too can fight climate change, fight future viral outbreaks and heal ourselves by growing our gardens this spring.

Learn how you can plan your garden intentionally to fight climate change on our webinar tomorrow. Register on the profile link above!

Meet our friend, Jes!

Director of the Climate Victory Gardens initiative of @greenamerica!

She's grown food in both east & west coasts, & now lives in the high desert of the southwest, where she grew up watching her mother garden and keep chickens, and where today she gardens under sometimes tough situations. It’s dry, the seasons are short, the sun is intense, and the deer are formidable foes.

Because she has such a big ♥️, Jes joined the Peace Corps and lived and worked in West Africa & studied food and agricultural issues in grad school in DC.

We're so blessed to have her give our next webinar entitled, "Grow Climate Solutions with Climate Victory Gardening,"

Our Story

WE GROW TO FEED OUR FAMILY

We began changing the way we ate after our first two kids developed severe food allergies. We soon discovered that the most nutrient-dense, most organic, tastiest fruits and veggies were the ones we could grow ourselves.

6 years and many mistakes later, we manage to supplement 25% of our food from growing in our small townhouse. We currently grow 235 lbs/year on 1/40th of an acre! If we can do it, you can too!

WE GROW TO CHANGE THE WORLD

Permaculture designer, Geoff Lawton likes to say, “All the problems of the world can be solved in a garden.”

We’ve found this to be true time and again as we build a community of growers online through our GIY program and offline through the after school club we run called, “Sprouts.”

We were once banned by our HOA from growing in our front yard. We’ve made some heading in our neighborhood as well and we tell that story HERE.

WE GROW FOR SPIRITUAL REASONS

Every garden for us is an opportunity to find God and an opportunity to restore Paradise.

“More in a garden grows, than the gardener knows.” – Anonymous

“Gardening symbolizes our race’s primordial acceptance of a responsibility and role in rectifying the harm done to the creation through sin.” – Vigen Guiroian

WE GROW TO BE HAPPY

We are a very positive family and we love helping other families grow because it makes us happy.

We celebrate YOU landing on our page! Yay! You found us!

Now we can’t wait to meet you online or in person. So sign-up for our webinar and tell us more about why you grow.

I've started Pak Choi, bush beans, sweet peas, snow peas, sweet basil, 3 types of parsley, cantaloupe, bell peppers, and different types of hot peppers, all started indoors this past week, I still have 4 flats to finish filling indoors. Can't wait till I can plant my root crops outside, but with snow on the ground it won't be for a while.
If you could choose to grow only 5 plants this year, what would they be? Comment below, so we know!
