Think Inside The Box


The solution to our problems can be summed up in two words: Grow Food! Whether through PlantLyph or Create Society, the common denominator is the cultivation of health and the realization that food is medicine.



Our consistent collaboration has made simple approaches to cultivating healthy foods obvious within our living environments, even in minimal spaces.


While this isn't a new phenomenon, American history shows steady pushes for individuals and families to cultivate their own food during times of war or national conflict, most prominently seen with Victory Gardens during World War I and World War II.


World War I: Beginning in 1917, the National War Garden Commission encouraged Americans to plant, grow, and harvest their own fruits and vegetables to reduce pressure on the public food supply and support the war effort.


World War II: Revived in 1942, the Victory Garden campaign was heavily promoted by the U.S. government and private organizations. Millions of Americans grew vegetables in backyards, empty lots, and city rooftops, promoting self-sufficiency and boosting morale.


Victory Gardens were a significant part of the home front effort, supporting the war effort and encouraging self-reliance.


While none of us are encouraging a World War III event, we don't necessarily need one to understand that when national resources become stretched, it impacts the basic necessities of many, affecting both quality and quantity. It's time for us to reimagine what leadership during these times will look like and remember that independent farmers are the most resilient individuals in America. They truly know what it takes to stand alone, uphold their principles, and prioritize self-preservation through the natural laws of farming.
