Description

This is a step by step guide to planting in the Sonoran Desert. I will show you how and where I gathered my information. You can start an urban garden or small scale farm of your own in the Sonoran Desert. I hope that you will glean what you need to be inspired and encouraged to grow. In this guide book you will look at things in a different way and learn to see the utility of something to be re purposed on a budget. I have taken a path that offered no clear direction or instruction. Following the leading of the Holy Spirit and applying what I do know to the things that I do not, our little ranch is growing. I have learned to define success differently not by balance sheets, but by the relationships and lives that you touch through food.
