The nice people at Path To Freedom continue to generate headlines for their all-edible garden in Pasadena. Reminds me of the British comedy ‘The Good Life,’ called ‘Good Neighbors’ in the US. It’s a little corny, but it has some very entertaining moments, particularly when the chickens or pigs encounter the Martini-swilling next door neighbors. Netflix that baby if you haven’t already.
Meanwhile, back to Path to Freedom:
Dervaes had been running a small lawn-maintenance business six years ago when he and his family started their self-sufficiency garden project, dubbed Path to Freedom. They started the garden because of their growing concerns about genetically modified organisms and other potentially harmful additives in mass-market produce. Since then, the Dervaeses have raised everything from asparagus and jicama to kiwis and cotton — all of it organic. They’ve been successful using space-maximizing gardening techniques, including raised earth beds and potted plants that hang between trellised plants.
