Suburban Farm Bloomin' In The Desert

After sampling vegan cookies and devouring plant-based street tacos, we discovered the Bloomin' Desert Herb Farm. Randy Gibson explained that in nearby Henderson he and wife, Rosalind, grow over 50 varieties of herbs and edible flowers then use the bounty to create the teas, seasonings and more for sale at local farmers markets. Speaking with wild excitement about transforming his typical suburban driveway into a greenhouse and growing waist high basil, Randy noticed our excitement and kindly obliged the request to visit the farm.

Community Gardens, Ya Dig?

The Plant-Based road has led to San Antonio, Texas to again work temporarily as stadium seat installers. While construction is not our passion, it's a great opportunity to earn money to fund the Wandering Food Pharm, get physically fit, and spread the Plant-Based message to interested workers.

Fuel for the Plant-Based Road

At home, navigating plant-based eating can be bumpy. When traveling, the whole foods, plant-based road can be full of potholes.

Gas station “food” options or fast food chains would leave us feeling heavy and tired, so we packed the following plant-based staples for dependable on-the-road sustenance...

Beyond Organic: Good News on the Veganic Front

 In the small town of Cedar Lake, thirty minutes west of the geographical center of Michigan's lower peninsula, the Good News Market & Farm grows fruits and vegetables 'Veganically'. Free from the use of animal products (blood, manures, and bone or fish meals) and using strictly plant-based materials, Veganic farming avoids the potential risks from animal products, like animal-related diseases, contamination, hormones, antibiotics and animal waste run-off.

The Future of Neighborhood Food Independence

The Future of Neighborhood Food Independence

This urban farm not only feeds the stomachs of the community but also the minds, especially of the young. Linda's garden is creating a ripple effect by getting kids to connect with their food, a very important lesson in today's world where food is prepackaged in a factory, often filled with sugar and chemical additives.

You down with WFP? (yeah you know me...)

Food frustration inspired us to create the Wandering Food Pharm (WFP), a Plant-based Vehicle delivering food as medicine. Equal parts action, activism, and knowledge, the WFP will empower consumers to make conscious food choices within an unconscious food system.
