Revolution In Your Own Backyard

One Million Gardens is an organization created to support gardeners around the world to grow their own food in a sustainable way and to preserve the genetic biodiversity of our natural seeds.

From their website: "A backyard garden is more than just the basis of healthy is one of the most important social movements of our age and the key to the preservation of our natural world."

They created this video to express this simple and profound idea: starting a garden is THE most important thing you can do.

"The solutions to the economic crisis and finding livelihoods are also the solutions to the crisis of the climate and also the solutions to poverty and unemployment: Start A Garden. Agriculture and food is an area where everyone can begin today." says author and activist Vandana Shiva, who narrates.

One shocking statistic in this video: Each year, over 900 gallons of oil based products are used growing and transporting food for an average family of four.

Turn the page: A front lawn can provide a family of four with produce for a year.
