EP 93 – Healthy Kids Healthy Farm Grown Food with Greg Peterson 

 October 24, 2022

By  The Blissful Parent

What if there is a garden in every yard? What if every family grows their own food without pesticides, without herbicides or without chemicals? How could it change your child’s health forever?

Greg Peterson is the creator of the concept called the Urban Farm. He is a green living and sustainability innovator who is well-versed in urban sustainability and food production in dry lands. Together with Michelle, Greg talks about the importance of growing your own food, and how you can successfully grow a garden and create healthy soil.

“Our industrial food system provides us with chemical laden, manufactured food products. And they’re not good for our health. By growing your own food, you can control what’s going into it, you can grow an organic garden. And so the food is healthier for you. It is picked at its peak of ripeness. So it’s most tasty, and at the same time, it’s most nutritious for you.” – Greg Peterson

“What if there was a garden and fruit tree in every yard?” This is a question that Greg ponders every day. For over 32 years he created on of one of Phoenix’s first environmental showcase homes for urban farming. The 1/4-acre yard featured a primarily edible landscape with over 80 fruit trees, rainwater and greywater harvesting, solar applications, and extensive use of reclaimed and recycled building materials.
