My name is Sundown Hazen. I am passionate about growing food and contributing to health and sustainability of his local community. I am using my backyard to grow fruits and vegatables traditionally, raise chickens, and raise fish and produce in an aquaponics system. I am also in the process of starting Pirate Produce, a business providing consulting services to home owners and small community groups and schools in sustainable food production. This group is a way for me to share my experiences and what I have learned with others interested in become more self sustainable. If you are interested in learning more about producing your own food, are looking for help in starting or expanding food project, or just want to share your experiences this group is for you. As the group grows, we can plan to work together on garden projects, or volunteer together at places like Full Circle Farms. Growing the food we eat contributes to a fulling life.
