The Best Self-Sustainable Food Ideas to Grow Your Own Food
man working in his garden of vegetables.

Our modern-day food system is significantly different than it once was. No longer are we mostly self-sufficient, growing and eating our own food, but rather nearly everything that makes its way to our kitchen table has been shipped hundreds or thousands of miles. Not only is this worse for the environment because it increases the carbon footprint and contributes to global warming, but it also disconnects us from our food and makes us heavily reliant on the multilevel commercial food system.

Growing your own food can be a deeply gratifying, fun, environmentally friendly, and more affordable way to bring nutritious foods to your table. Food self-sufficiency may be a lofty goal, but you don’t have to grow or produce everything on your plate to make strides toward being more sustainable, economical, and self-sufficient with your food consumption. Even if you live in a small apartment and have no land to grow vegetables or raise chickens, for example, you can still dabble in food self-sufficiency and cultivate some nutritious and delicious foods inside your very own kitchen.
