A Homegrown Update

CorneliaHi everyone,

Just a quick note to let you know what’s been happening over at HOMEGROWN.org, Farm Aid’s social network for do-it-yourselfers, growers, eaters and makers. Folks we call HOMEGROWNers!

We continue to gather the wonderful articles written for the HOMEGROWN 101 collection. This month, Megan from Brooklyn Homesteader shares her fantastic Beekeeping 101 – check it out!

Also, here’s an easy 101 for growing no-dig potatoes.

There's a lot happening on our member blogs:

Christa teaches us everything we need to know to make our own maple syrup!

Rachel digs into her root cellar to make a yummy coconut sweet potato soup.
Lots of HOMEGROWNers grow Calendula for its beauty and for its healing benefits. Amber shares her experience here.

These groups have been buzzing -- check them out!
