Look to our backyards

Each day we depend on the United States of America for the majority of the food on our tables.

We love and need the USA, but she has the responsibility to feed her own 320 million people. In addition, she has international commitments to food aide programmes in various under-developed countries.

My friends, it just may be time for us to express our human rights and human knowledge to plant our own backyard kitchen gardens that will create a plethora of foods and plants to assist us in the days of food shortages. This will further benefit us by improving our health and by extension, our lives.

In addition, creating our own backyard kitchen garden would allow us to eat our very own produced food and further provide us with a stockpile, not if, but when the food shortage becomes a reality throughout the economies of the world.

Let us face it, if 20,000 people in these islands plant backyard gardens, we would have sufficient food for our tables and the supermarket shelves.

In summary, the benefits of backyard gardening are numerous. Backyard gardening’ is your personal commitment to plant for your stomach, your health, and a nudge to your revenue base.

Friends, the best thing yet is you plant backyard garden at your own pace.

Plus you get all the benefits entailed therein…like exercise, how cool is that people?
