Today’s podcast episode is a replay of episode 89, Is it Really Worth it To Grow and Raise Your Own Food? which was originally published April 13th, 2020.

I still get this question a lot from folks who look at what’s going on in the world today and start thinking they might want to step away from the system and do some of their own stuff. However, it costs money. It takes time. And if you can’t go whole hog and do everything or be completely self-sufficient, is it even worth it?

I got that question a lot in 2020 at the beginning of the Covid mess. I still get that question in 2022’s current mess. So I thought this replay episode would be a good one for today—although it is interesting to consider what the conversation was surrounding 2020 reasons for self-reliance vs. the reasons in 2022. Similar fabric, different threads.

Hope you enjoy this replay episode!

  • I enjoy my gardening, even though I haven’t had great results in Hawaii (25-35 mph wind gusts all day most days is a challenge I wish I’d had some warning about) but I must point out that growing your own food is the organic equivalent of “Why would I buy this for $20 when I could make it myself with $50 worth of crafting supplies?”
