The Grow Network’s founder, Marjory Wildcraft has been featured as an expert in sustainable living by National Geographic, and she is the host of the annual Home Grown Food Summit, which reaches hundreds of thousands of viewers every year.
She is best known for her DVD series Grow Your Own Groceries, which has over a half million copies in use by homesteaders, foodies, preppers, universities, and missionary organizations around the world.
Beloved for her humorous, non-judgmental, get ’er done style, Marjory and her husband, Dave, are raising two teenagers in Central Texas. When she’s not building an online network, being “Mom,” and tending her family’s food supply, Marjory loves playing, running, doing gymnastics, skateboarding, acquiring skills from the Paleolithic era (yes, she is part cavewoman!), and experimenting with anything and everything related to food production and sustainability.
