About this episode's guest on the Vegetable Gardening Show, Mark Valencia

#393: How to Live Self Sufficient with a Small Garden (Mark Valencia) Self Sufficient Me is a blog about self-sustainment by growing our own produce (plant/animal), and self-fulfilment by looking after our health (physical/mental) through exercise and slowing life down a little.

At the same time, we focus on our environmental footprint and how we can improve our “patch of dirt” not only for our own benefit but also to better develop the surroundings for other plants and animals - it's their world too.

Our common sayings...

We try to, "look, and see the Earth through her eyes;" and we say, "You don't have to be self-sufficient in everything just be self-sufficient in something," also, "respect your body and keep it healthy through regular exercise."

The Editor (and owner) of Self Sufficient Me is Mark Valencia. Mark retired from the Australian Army in 2008 after 21 years of service and is married with two children (boys). He has always been passionate about self sufficiency (even as a child) and he is now enjoying the opportunity to communicate this passion through the blog and community forum. You can learn more about Mark through his writing and various other media he produces.
