“My garden is a constant learning process. Every day I’m just learning new things,” said Travis.

The process of transforming his backyard into a garden and farm began with his daughter’s science project: hatching eggs with a homemade incubator.

“So now we have couple of hens in there getting eggs every day. People like my eggs,” said Travis.

As Travis’ farm was expanding, he learned his health was declining.

He was diagnosed with multiple myeloma, a rare blood cancer.

Travis says urban farming saved his life as he went through some very difficult days. He’s now in remission and wants to encourage others to consider backyard farming.

“For the next generation, get them used to going out and putting stuff in the soil,” said Travis.

“Think about it as you put stuff in the ground and then life springs from that,” Travis said.

He says you can start small.
