A Word From Julien Kirton

“I believe everyone should be able to provide healthy, nutritious food for themselves and their families, even if resources are limited. 

And the best way to make this possible is to provide interested people with simple, actionable instructions they can use. 

I am excited to share this information with a large audience and assure them that they too can become more self-reliant.”
