Grow Your Own Food (not, but)

December 11th, 2017 · No Comments

by Dwayne Phillips

There are a long list of things we could try that would not work, but there may be side benefits for trying.

A recent article highlighted what some call agri-hoods where people are trying to live an agriculture life in the outer suburbs. Yes, they are going to grow their own food. Of course this won’t work. Estimates differ, but you need two to ten acres of good land per person to grow your own food. So, this will fail, BUT you may learn a few things a teach a few things. Those are pretty good side benefits.

Got great ideas of things to do? Most will not work. Here are some that won’t:

  • write a novel
  • write a screenplay
  • write a play
  • build a house
  • build a car
  • paint portraits
  • It is easy to continue the list.

Then we go back to the first paragraph, BUT there are many things we can learn and teach that flow from the attempt. So, attempt it and keep your notice-er in full gear and learn and teach.
