The Solution Series: Food Forest Abundance with Jim Gale

We’ve got 44 million acres of lawn in the United States. The lawn is the foundation of enslavement and the biggest mass brainwashing scam in the world, as it takes more chemicals and resources than any other crop and it does not provide food.”

In a world where the established order wants to propagate fear and gain control through the idea of scarcity, while at the same time providing solutions like lab-grown meat and gene-edited produce, taking control of your own food production is quickly approaching what marketers call the Momentum Phase. Jim Gale is here to help America grow food abundantly.

Gale, a Minnesota native, has been around farming and gardening since his childhood when he would visit his family farm in Southern Minnesota as a boy.

When I was a kid, we would go home to the farm… those were the most incredible weekends of my life. They called me ‘nature boy’ growing up.

At the tender age of nineteen, Gale had a life-changing experience as he decided to write his goals down on paper to solidify their significance. After completing that exercise, Gale went on to become a 4-time, all-American national wrestling champion, which he attributed to his written goals.

After planning the concept of abundance gardening for over 15 years, Gale launched his Food Forest Abundance program just over a year ago. Gale, a permaculturist, has already had amazing results with his program, which encourages you to ditch your grass-filled front and back lawns and replace them with an edible forest.

This week, Gale takes us through how to make this dream a reality, reviewing the success they’ve already had and their team’s step-by-step process and describing how the program can help families, institutions, and towns convert their lawns to edible food forests.

Our interview with the Co-founder of Food Forest Abundance, Jim Gale, is one you’re not going to want to miss!

    I wonder what your solutions are for the millions of people who are living in the big cities.
    Ofcourse you are right in cases that you heve the luxery of a garden, small of big.
    Over here in the Netherlands where in general 450 humans per sq. km live and we still are a big food supplier to the countries surrounding us we talk about paralelling societies – but that is also limited and only for a few to realise their own food supply.
    This country is the main object for the WEF gang to realise their ideas, and our gouvernement is activ to steal the farmers land for their own use,
    So the problem is far more complicated then you sugest in your article.
    Have a nice day,
    meditate a lot how to develop a solution thats availeble for ALL people in the world.
    Because you cannot exclude people in dire circumstances.
    Greetings and love for all.

    Further to the question about learning and the question about feeding the poor of the world, we have two organizations here in Florida that do just that; HEART in Lakeland, and ECHO in N Fort Myers. Both are Christian based who train interns who then go out to the poorest areas of the world and teach subsistence farmers how to make the best use of the resources they have available and grow healthy food. Both these places have demonstration gardens for various types of terrain and growing methods. Well worth a visit if you can get there., check them out and support them with a donation if you can.

    I totally agree about the landscaping scam.

    Plus people are dumping both herbicide (glyphosates) and pesticide onto their lawns without considerIng the consequences to their health.

    I think perfect lawns are the number one reason people get cancer. We walk on it, bringing that crap into our homes. Our kids play on the grass that has been infused with pesticides and herbicides – seriously, who in the hell thought this was a good idea? Gee… I wonder if this has anything to do with the alarming trend of pets not living as long as they used to?

    Then there’s the environmental cost… stupid green lawns for stupid sheeple. Glyphosate gets in the ecosystem and it never leaves. We all know it causes cancer. So why do we use it? It’s in everything now. I hate well manicured lawns. I think people who have those types of lawns are rather insipid.

    It’s just so disheartening – some stuff seems so logical not to do, but we go ahead and do it anyway.

    This is great. Funny but I have always thought about this kind of thing . When I was planting seeds in my tiny tiny back yard then seeing my neighbors buy flowers … I would always think to myself. Why not plant your own food so you don’t have to go to the grocery for tomatoes etc. y’all… I grew cantaloupe in my tiny back yard! You can do it! I grew lemons from seeds I got from organic lemons … grew lemons in a pot!!! I grew peppers inside during winter! In a pot!!! We can do it!!
