Growing strawberries on a trellis is pretty amazing, isn’t it? It sure makes picking them a lot easier.

This is everything I’ve ever dreamed of.

HH:  I think strawberries and watermelons are two of my favorite things about spring-summer.

Cucamelons can be grown in pretty much the exact same way as regular cucumbers, only they are far easier. They don’t need the cover of a greenhouse, fancy pruning or training techniques and suffer from very few pests. Sow the seed from April to May indoors and plant out when all risk of frost is over. Give them a support the scramble over, keep well watered and that’s pretty much all you will need to do!

Permafrost Farming - 
Farm intern Simon Goldstein stands in the underground chicken coop. A DJ and artist in Anchorage during the winter, Simon spent the summer in Bethel learning the ways of permafrost farming under Tim’s tutelage. Now a month into his internship, he’s hooked, and Tim’s determined to replicate the teaching process into a larger farm school.

HOMEGROWN REVOLUTION 


This film features: Jules Dervaes, Justin Dervaes, Anais Dervaes and Jordanne Dervaes

Homegrown Revolution is a short introduction to the homegrown project that has been called a new revolution in urban sustainability.

In the midst of a dense city setting in downtown Pasadena, radical change is taking root. For over twenty years, the Dervaes family have transformed their home into an urban homestead and model for sustainable agriculture and city living.

Through the creation of the “Urban Homestead” the Dervaes family shows that change is possible — one step at a time. They harvest 3 tons of organic food annually from their 1/10 acre garden while incorporating many back-to-basics practices, solar energy and biodiesel in order to reduce their footprint on the earth’s resources.
