Today's #SocialCafe Chat was about Holiday Gift Idea: Backyard Farming Book by Angela England.This #SocialCafe event sponsored, in part, by our wonderful friends at:
With the economy the way it is, prices seem to only go up and many people find themselves compromising by spending more (and spending less somewhere else), or spending less money and sacrificing taste. It seems, with some backyard farming techniques, that possibly neither taste nor money needs to be sacrificed.
A1 I definitely think that grocery costs are a huge concern for families today. Average for family my size is $1200 per month! #socialcafe— AngEngland (@AngEngland) December 12, 2012
A1 But our monthly grocery bill is about $400 per month on average - a little more when I was buying formula for Vivian #socialcafe— AngEngland (@AngEngland) December 12, 2012
There are many ways to save money, not just in the farming, but, as Angela says, in the repurposing and changing the thinking patter. Some great ideas here. Be sure to review the slideshow, above, for more ideas.
A2 One thing to keep in mind is that seasonal eating is going to save you more money because there's an abundance.#socialcafe— AngEngland (@AngEngland) December 12, 2012
Find ways to repurpose and reuse instead of buying it. Ask yourself Do I Need it? Can I Make it? #socialcafe— AngEngland (@AngEngland) December 12, 2012
Ok, some of us go for the plastic plants that need dusting. However, why not try for the real ones and make an effort to grow something. It results in time with the kids, education, and, as Angela says, HUGE savings.
A3 Which harkens back to Q2 - Growing perennial plants is a HUGE savings because you plant it ONCE and harvest yearly.#socialcafe— AngEngland (@AngEngland) December 12, 2012
Many things come to mind with the phrase, "backyard farming," even with the author, herself. It would seem maybe you would need to read her book to take in the effects of her journey and what she is ready to teach you.
I used to think of weird Amish hippy-freaks. Then I moved to Oklahoma and met my husband. Lol! #socialcafe— AngEngland (@AngEngland) December 12, 2012
With the concept of saving money, while still giving gifts, this book by Angela England seems to make perfect sense (pun intended).
