The Grow System: True Health, Wealth, and Happiness Come from the Ground Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Grow your own food and medicine with a step-by-step guide from the founder of The Grow Network
Imagine cultivating enough food to slash your grocery shopping in half—all in less than an hour a day in your own backyard. Sounds impossible, right? Marjory Wildcraft says it's not: She's been homesteading for almost twenty years and founded The Grow Network to teach hundreds of thousands of others—some with very little space or time, some city dwellers with rooftop gardens—how to do the same, from gardening, to raising chickens, to composting, to medicine-making.
Wildcraft started her homesteading journey in search of a more sustainable and financially secure way of life. As she says, self-sufficiency offers practical rewards, but the real payoff is "true wealth": health, family, community, meaningful work, and living a life with purpose. This empowering way of life is possible for anyone who has a patch of dirt, small or large. The Grow System includes:
- Essential advice for creating a balanced ecosystem in your backyard, with a basic recipe for homemade fertilizer
- Step-by-step instructions for setting up a chicken coop and information on choosing the right breed
- Home remedies for 12 common ailments, with 8 must-know medicine preparations.
The Grow System provides a comprehensive strategy for producing healthy food and herbal medicine at home, and reclaiming the skills our ancestors used every day. It helps connect us to the environment and empowers us to lead healthier lives, without relying on big systems that are out of our control and insecure. It offers a path to a rich, reliable, and deeply satisfying life.

The author Marjory is a woman full of knowledge whom I also follow on her website “the growing network “ an excellent website which provides an abundance of information.
My only wish is the “ book cover “had a more sturdy cover material. I feel the cover is much to light weight and will possibly get damaged sooner then later .
It certainly does appear that world events are speeding up. Our systems appear to be breaking down. How much time do we have?. Marjory had the foresight to know this was coming. She is not some dumb ‘hippy’ – she is a very powerful woman with previous successful careers in engineering and business. She dropped all that intentionally to find the best ways to teach people how to produce food and medicine very quickly during tough times. Her experience and care really come through in her writing.
Marjory's book lays out a simple step-by-step program that showed me exactly what to do. And her stories inspired me that YES! I can do this. There is so much information out there and it is hard to sort what is true and reliable. I know I can’t possibly go through it all. I absolutely trust that Marjory has figured out all the important pieces – her writing has depth and honesty to it you won’t find elsewhere.
I am so glad I found this book early on. Buy the book. And get growing.
