Nothing is more powerful than an idea whose time has come.

After winning the Carbon Farmer's first "Face Your Footprint" contest and successfully reaching its crowdfunding goal on, the Food Garage Project has gained some serious attention.

We've raised some eyebrows by challenging the concept of local food, showing how it's possible to live a "zero-mile diet" and feed a family of four for a year, forever simply on what can be grown in your back yard.

Check out the promo videos at the Facebook Page for all the finer project details and the 9-part blog written for Growing Food Security in Alberta.

We want to show you how to turn your garage into a veritable grocery store, so spread the word and sink your teeth into something real!
