t's a beautiful golden morning. The smell of coffee fills your home and you start thinking
You walk outside and collect eggs so fresh, they are still warm. As you look around proudly, bright green parsley catches your eye and you collect a small bunch....and maybe a stalk of spring onion so strong and thick you only need one.

In a unique way, Mike demonstrates the concepts of self sufficiency and motivates you to try something new.
Growing your own produce at home usually results in an excess. Looking past giving the extra to friends and family, we realised that collectively, these home grown excesses can be turned into valuable contributions for those who really need it.
We have created a non profit organisation that distributes the excess produce to the less fortunate, supports local gowers, and encourages people to grow their own.
The website for our organisation is www.farmyarmy.com.au

Why You Should Grow Your Own
If you are wary of the pesticides, herbicides and synthetic fertilisers used on the everyday fruits and vegetables bought at the supermarket, then you should consider growing your own food.
As a society, we are losing control on the chemicals and practices that are accepted as suitable to be used to grow our food. In the past 4 years, produce imported from overseas has increased by 80% and it is often from countries that have differing standards and ethics in food production.
When growing your own, you know exactly what has gone into and onto your food.
Save Water – Did you know that your typical shop bought produce, uses up to five times the amount of water to produce the comparable amount of vegetables grown at home!
Save Money – Buying organic food can be expensive and not everyone can afford to buy organic each week. A packet of seeds is cheap and can provide enough organic produce to last for months!
Reduce Greenhouse Emissions – When you consider the energy used by machines to sow, harvest, transport, sort, cool and store shop bought produce, (only then to be transported home and cooled in your own fridge) - You could reduce your carbon footprint by at least a quarter just by growing your own.
- Natural food as it should be
- Chemical free, hormone free, pesticide free
- Easy and inexpensive to maintain
- Food that is fresh, great tasting & nutritious
Any Backyard, Any Budget, Anybody!
Many people living in the suburbs would like to live a more sustainable lifestyle, but are discouraged by a perceived lack of space in a typical suburban backyard.
You don’t need to a lot space! Even a small space can be utilised with some clever planning, to provide you with home produced food.
You don’t need a lot of time! With a little amount of work you can produce an abundance of organically produced food all year round. Encourage nature, embrace the natural ecosystems and let nature take care of the rest.....or you can encourage Suburban Farmer to do the work for you!
The aim is to simplify and enrich your life and to bring a little nature back into a hectic lifestyle, with a productive backyard and a place to escape the stresses of everyday life.
We passionately believe in sustaining and improving ecosystems to meet the ever increasing demand on our environment and it starts at home. From little things big things grow!
