Homegrown Resilience Webinar

Here’s the Youtube link for the Homegrown Resilience Webinar:


In this panel webinar, we discuss what makes local food systems more resilient than large scale industrial food systems, and get into some practical advice on growing food at home. We learn some basics of urban gardening, establishing a nursery for veggies and perennials, setting up a few types of drip irrigation, and some easy ways to begin growing mushrooms at home.
