No longer willing to settle for what lies on this side of the Jordan, I choose to walk into God's biggest dreams for me- My thoughts, discoveries and challenges along the way to claiming new territory and stirring up dormant gifts.
I have been following a family in Pasadena, CA who has transformed their tiny city home into a micro farm, producing upwards of 6000 lbs. of food per year. This is a version of the short film they made that has won several awards. I posted just the trailer on facebook as they are selling the full length film (15:44) in order to help fund their work. I found this shorter version of the film on the personal website of Jordanne Dervaes, daughter of the original Urban Homesteader, Jules Dervaes.
I can say so much about what kinds of changes my mind is beginning to embrace, but the real change is in the doing. So starting with what I have, I am committing to grow 1% of my food for the remainder of 2011. That may seem like a small figure, but it's a huge undertaking.
How much food do I really eat? What will it take for me to grow it in the small backyard of my mom's rented town house? What will I grow? How much will I have to adjust the way I eat? Am I ready for all that? Well, I'm giving myself a week to get it all figured out.
