The Growing Empowered Manuscript

The idea behind Growing Empowered started in a much more comprehensive manner…

A generalized ‘train the trainer’ blueprint on food security, self reliance and creating an awareness of the symbiotic relationship between us, all Life and the Earth is where it began.

The Manuscript is a compilation of all of the greatest knowledge learned through more than a decade of gardening and growing food – seed to table – easy, affordable, quick and very satisfying.

This work is important and life saving. Finishing the Growing Empowered Manuscript is terribly important.

I continue to work on this project on the weekends, evenings and in the early morning hours before I go to work at my full time job.

I can offer the first two chapters of Growing Empowered for you to download for free here:

Growing Empowered Chapters 1 & 2 (Draft Copies)

If the above link fails to work somehow you can also download those same chapters of the manuscript here:

Growing Empowered Chapters 1 & 2 (Google Drive)

I have written portions of Growing Empowered over the past four years.

Chapters 3 & 4 are in the final draft process. Chapters 5, 6 & 7 are close to completion, and Chapters 8 & 9 are fully mapped out. So there is still a ways to go.

I am also working on creating workshop handouts that compliment and accompany the manuscript. The manuscript is meant for anyone who would like to share this knowledge with others. The handouts are meant to be the take home materials for those who attend Growing Empowered workshops. At this time, there will be approximately 7 workshops of 4 hours each covering a wide range of topics.

They are being written in easy to understand terms, with only the need-to-know basics covered on many topics surrounding soil culture, growing and harvesting food, caring for the land and more!
