Welcome to the Food Not Lawns Network! 

Hi! I'm Heather Jo Flores. In 1999, I started the original Food Not Lawns collective in Eugene Oregon with two of my friends. We focused on sharing seeds, tools, plants, resources and information all around their neighborhood. We organized annual seed swaps and conducted low-cost workshops for people who lived near us, and transformed our neighborhood into a thriving, regenerative community.

In 2006 I released my book, Food Not Lawns, How to Turn Your Yard into a Garden and Your Neighborhood into a Community, and for the next ten years, I traveled all over the USA, turning yards into gardens and bringing people together to visualize a better future. 

Now I manage a food forest in Spain and devote my time to writing, research, seed saving, and managing the Food Not Lawns network through social media and this here Patreon, where the goal is to raise fund to help local chapters all over the world turn yards into gardens and neighborhoods into communities!

Here you will find tons of pro-tips, garden pics, design ideas, and so much more to help you get inspired and face the challenges of growing your own food and organizing your community around food security and mutual aid. Times are crazy! And we have solutions!
