Johnny’s garden is the small farm life dream of husband and wife partners Don and Leiah. Built in the 1930’s the home occupies one acre of lush and fertile Rio Grande Bosque in Southwest Albuquerque, NM.We intend for the property to support us physically and spiritually and to be a foundation upon which to build a ecologically friendly, self supporting lifestyle. Some of our goals include converting to solar energy, reusing our greywater, rainwater catchment, growing all of our own produce, and producing the majority of our animal products.This is our journey posted here for the purposes of documenting our own progress and sharing with distant friends and family. If through our story we inspire someone else to re-examine their lifestyle choices we’d be delighted. If you just happen across us and want to follow along we welcome you and your comments.
