As you may have read, my family is in the process of transitioning our home from a traditional household to a producing household. This simply means we're going to start making some of the food we eat. We're doing this for our health, for our education, for our environmental impact and for fun!
We are still very much in the preparation stages. We've finished the patio area and today, a new fence is being installed in our backyard. Since we've already started the composting process, our next step is to build our raised beds and prepare the soil. My kids and I got to see first hand how this school garden works their land and maintains their sweet, small flock of four laying hens. It was such a treat!
