Hi, I am Chris. I live in Florida and have a wonderful family. My goal is to teach people how to grow their own food. We are going to use a little science and a little practical experience. I want to say up front that I do not have a “Green Thumb”. I am going to primarily focus on hydroponics and aquaponics.

I have a rich family history of self sustainability and living off the land, and I want to show other people how to do the same. My family lived off of the land because the had to. Both my maternal and paternal grand parents lived in rural Florida.  I know a lot of people think of beaches, fishing and, of course, Disney World when they think of Florida, but Florida has a rich tradition of agriculture- both farming and ranching.

I watched as my families worked the land and raised their own food. There is a special kind of satisfaction in doing this. This leads us back to our goal of showing you how to do this for your self on what ever scale you choose. Either way you can have the satisfaction of picking a fresh ripe tomatoes that you grew. You can sprout the seeds and watch it grow. For the science type, you can try different ways of producing food.

Why this Blog

Our Goal is science made simple. I want to show you what is working for me and what methods I have tried and the results that I have had.  Our goal is to eat healthier and to help the community by teaching others these same methods to start their own gardens.

I hope you enjoy,

Chris
