Story Chain



About five years ago I started my journey in pursuit of a healthier lifestyle. I started buying “organic” and non-gmo foods, mainly fruits and vegetables, from grocery stores and I shortly learned that everything labeled organic isn’t always quite organic. I then tried shopping at stores like Trader Joe’s, Sprouts, Whole Foods and other markets but that became very expensive.

I wanted my family and myself to be healthy without going broke in the process. Even at whole food markets you still question if organic and non-gmo is really what it claims to be. We are in a time where anybody can label anything “organic”, and the only true way to know you are getting exactly what Grow Weed you want is to grow food for yourself.

I came to the conclusion that I would have to start growing my own food, so I did, and to be honest growing those vegetables, fruit and herbs wasn’t as simple as I thought. At the time I was active-duty in the Air Force and stationed in Nevada. There were only a select few plants that would grow in that type of climate. So indoor growing was the best option for me and my family. During the growth process I was able to learn many things through my failures and successes.

Over time I collected the essential things that I needed to successfully start, what I call my “mini farm”, by putting together a full grow kit. I found that there are many benefits of growing indoors and outdoors in a grow tent. I was able to control the climate, kept insects and animals out so I didn’t need pesticides, and I could grow anywhere which meant that I could pack up and take the equipment with me if my duty station changed.
