    So here I am, a complete newbie to growing things, I am 22 years old, and until now have had 0 experience growing anything. I live with grandparents who have some experience raising chickens and rabbits and vegetables...but I want to take it to the next level and grow everything I need to survive on the nearly 2 acres we have, and if i can learn enough to get good and I have access to 20 acres I could maybe use (if i could make it profitable) to raise food to sell locally, where should I go to get advice on getting started=)

    I don't know about growing things, but if you are looking for advise about chickens, you're in the right place. Sounds like a good venture for a young lad of 22. Good luck. [​IMG]
