Biografía The first thing is that we are here in suburbia.
As you guys can see, everybody has their front yard lawn.
Once again, I’m going to say that I believe lawns are a waste of resources.
They take a lot of water, a lot of pesticides, and a lot of, you know, herbicides and fertilizers
and what-not, and a very small percentage of standard fertilizers that people use on
their lawns are actually giving nutrients to the lawn.

Most of it is being run off into the sewer systems, the storm drain, all of this kind
of stuff.
In addition, most people just have a lawn because their neighbor has a lawn, and, you
know, how many kids do you see playing on lawns?
Like, zero.
Maybe if you had kids it would be a good use to have a lawn.
But I’m all about practicality and making the best use of your space.
We all need to eat, so I think the best use of your space is to grow some food, and that’s
why I travel all around to share with you guys ways different people grow food differently.

So I’m glad to share with you guys this one today.
So next, let’s go ahead and pan the camera around and show you guys why I’m here today.
All right.
As you guys can see, over on this side of the street right here, there is a house.
It looks like the house is almost like a standard house.
Half of the yard has a lawn, and they have actually a fig tree and a pomegranate tree.

I always recommend and encourage you guys to grow fruit trees if you’re still going
to have a lawn because you could grow some trees above the lawn, nobody is going to know,
and it’s going to produce food for you and your family.
Especially here in south Florida, I recommend you guys grow tropical fruits, definitely
some of my favorites.

In addition, besides just the lawn and some fruit trees, they have an aquaponic set up
in the back, as well as some other things growing in the back yard, more fruit trees
Actually, they have a nice sapodilla tree or chicozapote tree, one of my favorite fruits
called the brown sugar fruit.
It’s loaded with fruit, but it’s not going to be ripe for, I don’t know, ‘til next
