Barbara Herring is a self-sufficient gardener (as much as one can be!)

In 2009 after a job loss and the subsequent economic crisis I set about documenting and relaying my 33 years of knowledge in the realms of gardening, hunting, fishing and other food gathering activities. Using the show motto of Efficient, Responsible and Sustainable I began to refine that lifetime of knowledge into methods of food production that were achievable for even people who had no experience with such things.

My geographic location is Western Kentucky where I am currently working on a food production system on my 4 acres adjacent to Kentucky Lake. I currently live nearby with my husband and young son (Jackson). My day job as a Quality Manager has given me a unique perspective on building sustainable processes that are both foolproof and efficient.

So join me and don’t be afraid to jump in or ask questions.
