Empowering you and your community to grow more of your own food

A good primer on getting back to a healthier lifestyle. 22 chapters explore ideas as simple as growing herbs in a pot to information on raising heritage breed cows.

After a rewarding, but often frustrating career as a General Practitioner, where the life expectancy of a medical doctor is 57 years, Dr. Mary Lou Shaw has found her voice and a way to treat the causes and not just the symptoms of so many of our food related diseases and bad eating habits. In her book, Growing Local Food, she and her husband, Tom, have clearly charted the path to a healthier and more rewarding life through simple living and growing their own food on fertile soil.
