Today on Grow! With Katie, we got to *virtually* hang out with our bestie and best-selling author and speaker, Brie Arthur (shhh, it’s her birthday!).
Brie’s first book, The Foodscape Revolution, laid the groundwork for realizing the full potential that every landscape offers, planting with purpose to grow fruits and veggies alongside traditional plantings. What a perfect topic for right now!
Victory Gardens are making a comeback as people are turning to their own yards and gardens for groceries during this stay-at-home order. Brie has been taking advantage of her at-home grocery store since 2006, starting with just some land and some seeds, showing that growing your own food is a long-term bountiful investment. Kale, heirloom tomatoes, lettuce, arugula, chard, even barley. The opportunities are endless when your grow your own veggies, fruits and grains.
