*$700 was the amount of produce grown and documented by famed "Edible Landscaping" author, Rosalind Creasy on this blog.

We propose that you can grow more than this amount.  Take into account the fact that you can grow many times throughout the year using the same plot of land.

This is one of the many "permaculture garden multipliers" you'll discover when you sign-up for our newsletter or webinars.

We can't wait to see how much you'll grow!
