There has never been a better time in history to take total control of your property, your food production; whether plant or animal, the technology to grow food for you and livestock outdoors or in, using led lights, solar power, outside, basement or garage to grow it in. To make and raise your own compost, hummus, fertilizer (manure) and make the best use of it. Come on in and have a look around. Let us know what you think. Any ideas are appreciated.
