I just got to see Marjory Wildcraft's great DVD on Food Production.  What a fascinating collection of information.  These folks really are serious about what it takes to get food production in our region of the world.  Texas is not the most forgiving place in the world to grow veggies and raise your backyard critters but Marjory sure shows you how. 

This is a treat.  Marjory shows you the ways to integrate animals into your food system with lots of good details about chickens and rabbits and tons of info about how to amend sandy or clay soil types.
