Dog Island Farms

In this episode of Grow, Tom and Rachel dream of eating only food grown in their own backyard, and in Vallejo, California their dream just might come true. They chose a home with an extra-large lot and dug right in, facing the challenges and flourishing from the successes within their newfound community. With full-time day jobs in construction and landscape architecture, Tom and Rachel are well suited to the planning and execution required for managing their backyard farm. Time is another question, but somehow Rachel also fits in a writing gig for Homegrown.org. What would a feast of locally-grown foods include in your hometown? Share with us in the comments below.
