What planting/gardening methods are you utilizing currently?

Low Cost - NO Cost Homesteading - entering my 9th year of growing food and more than 30 seasons. "I'm growing for FOOD - not for FUN"

Which self-sufficiency topic interests you the most?

No answer yet

Can you offer related topic knowledge to contribute to group learning efforts?

I can't actually believe how much I STILL don't know! What I do know - I'm happy to share. What I DON'T know - I can introduce you to someone who does!

What's your experience level in gardening &/or preparedness?

I'm familiar with the Transition movement and after years of political activism have a pretty good handle on just what's coming down the pike. Will say I'm more the Long Crush, rather than the apocalyptic sort though.

What motivated you do join the group?

1. Gotta get sustainable food production & community resiliency up and FUNCTIONING. 2. Wasted too much time with talky talk we MUST focus on Do - Doing. 3. We're going to need more people. Individuals just aren't going to make it long term.


I'm Faith (Faye) Carr and I have a small 2.5 acre place that I call M&F FARMette. It's a working backyard farm that pays for itself. I'm passionate about getting as many people in our area to get shovels in the ground and producing food.

What Faye C. is saying about this Meetup Group

GG&PN is moving forward to bring useful & vital worksops. Strength is in our numbers. Look for the Seed Starting worksop in September. Aquapnics (hands on) and Seed Saving in October.Beyond First Aid in November, and beginning with Herbal Medicine in January 2015! NOT sure about December - want a party?
