America Unhinged: Victory Gardens for Life class helps Americans prepare for looming food crisis – Brighteon.TV
06/02/2022 // Kevin Hughes // Views

Guest host Sondra Hicks and agriculture expert Fred Billings talked about growing your own food during the May 30 episode of "America Unhinged" on Brighteon.TV.

Hicks, the founder and CEO of HeartStone Network, filled in for regular host Dr. John Diamond and discussed the global food crisis that is already hitting several countries around the world.

The award-winning filmmaker, speaker and author noted that the ongoing conflict between Russia and Ukraine has contributed to this. Ukraine, widely known as the breadbasket of the world, is unable to produce food or export wheat. Russia, on the other hand, has been stopped from contributing to the food supply with the sanctions imposed by Western nations led by the United States.

Hicks asked Billings how people can prepare for and combat the food crisis that is expected to hit America soon.

Billings said he and his family are training people to grow their own vegetables through a class called Victory Gardens for Life. He added that the training can be found on the HeartStone Network and people can pick it up for free.

"It's not too late across most of the United States to start a vegetable garden at home, they just have to get it going," Billings said. He added that people who have their own garden can start harvesting a whole bunch of stuff and create fresh, organic and wholesome food.

The Victory Gardens for Life page on the Heart Stone Network has all of Billings' teachings about the soil, as well as the how-to of planting, transplanting, watering, fertilizing and harvesting.


Americans promoted Victory Gardens during World War II

Billings said he has no doubt that Victory Gardens for Life will make a difference because it is not a new thing. During World War II, about 132 million people living in the U.S. promoted what is called Victory Gardens because America was shipping so much of its food over to Europe to support the troops and the Europeans. (Related: Dr. Robert Malone: Wartime gardens key to beating food crisis.)

The agriculture expert and farmer added that there were somewhere between 18 and 23 million victory gardens in the U.S. during that time and they popped up in parks, churches and even on rooftops. He also mentioned that 41 percent of all the produce in America during that period came out of people's victory hardens. Billings said the Victory Gardens motivated people around the world, noting that six other countries did it including Nazi Germany.

"So we chose that name. And because it has a history, it has a really powerful history," Billings explained.

Most people don't realize that they have everything they need to grow a successful garden at their disposal and it really doesn't cost a thing. People can make or buy compost and there are materials readily available to make compost. Nature makes compost every single day and that is how it feeds itself.

According to Billings, Victory Gardens for Life is not just about how to grow your own food, but also about the principle of influence on how to interact with other human beings in a positive way.

Billings pointed out that people don't need a lot of space to have their own garden. But people should learn to choose which vegetables are going to give them the most yield out of the space that they have.

He added that people should focus on the soil and not the plant because the plant is a product of the soil. If people get the soil right, they can spill seed and it will grow.

There were about 300 families that signed up for Billings' class. Now, these families are feeding about 400 people every Tuesday.
