Urban micro-farms backyard gardens are full of fresh, organic produce. One such micro-farm is located in Pasadena, California just a little way from a freeway. The 4000-square foot garden provides around 400 different types of vegetables and fruit. Jules Dervaes started his farm in 1985. He wasn’t happy that the taco shells his children were eating were made from genetically modified corn.
Now the family is completely self-sufficient! They can produce over 6,000 pounds of food each year. They earn extra money by selling what they cannot eat. What an amazing idea! I wish I had a green thumb, I would love to do this in my backyard! Check out the video below. You will get a mini-tour of this amazing backyard garden.
Take a look at this video!
Just think of all the money you would save not driving back and forth from the grocery store each week! Jules also has ducks, goats, chickens and bees! Share away, people!
