 How Can We Help You?

About Jordan and Danielle and Grow Your Own Freedom


We thoroughly love growing our own fresh vegetables, fruits and herbs and we are here to share our experiences, resources and services to help you on your journey of growing your own freedom.

In the early 2000s we were both very focused on regular exercise (we are both avid runners, triathletes, and yogis) and caring for ourselves and were shocked at how many harmful pesticides and synthetic ingredients comprise the foods and the soaps, creams, lotions and perfumes that stock the shelves we as consumers are presented with in stores.

Feeling a little overwhelmed, we decided the simplest action we could take was to start growing some of our own food.  This way, we could be assured that what we were eating was grown safely and would nourish our bodies.

In 2011, after the purchase of our first home together, we quickly became enthralled with the possibilities of growing food in our small, suburban backyard (less than ¼ acre).  We built our very first raised garden beds (since our yard is nothing but hard packed clay) that spring and really truly fell in love with gardening.  

We started Grow Your Own Freedom in 2014 to share our passion, knowledge and philosophy with others.

Whether it is beginning to grow your own food, knowing a little bit more about the items you buy, going back to basics and enjoying a simpler lifestyle, or discovering nature’s goodness, we are here to help you on this journey.
