As we all know, the pandemic has been a big interruption to our usual routines. Many people, for good reason, have re-focused on the importance of access to food during the disruption.
Most of our food at supermarkets rely on industrial agriculture and the requisite farmworkers, distribution networks, and commercial infrastructure. Even though we don’t have a food “shortage,” we certainly have a food system that has been disrupted.
In this video, we explore secrets to growing a successful Victory Garden so that you can feed your family regardless of the economic and supply challenges in our future.

As promised, these are the supplies for starting seedlings indoors that we used for our new setup.
We started with an indoor/outdoor 5-tier wire shelving unit from Home Depot. I liked this one because it would be easy to hang the lights from and I could adjust the shelves to the height that I want them to be.

These are the inexpensive lights that we created to work as grow lights. We purchased the shop lights from Home Depot online so that we didn’t have to go out in the crowd.

Grow lights should be at least 2500 lumens and between 5000K to 6500K. Home Depot wouldn’t deliver the light bulbs to our home so we purchased them from Amazon https://amzn.to/2Kx2Mue
We also purchased a surge protector – https://amzn.to/3avbXGl and to simplify things you may want to put the system on a timer using a device like this one https://amzn.to/2VC50iB.
We hope that you will join us in upping our game and growing more food than ever before.
Thanks for being part of the solution!
