Grow your own food
Growing your own food can be a good alternative to dumpster diving. It's very important to be aware of the conditions that you are working with when deciding to grow your own food, as the amount of sun, water, and the soil's qualities (i.e. pH level, lead and nitrogen levels) can result in delicious, healthy crops or someone becoming ill. You also want to make sure you know how much room you have and how much space each plant requires, as some plants like squash require alot of space for the vines and other plants like peppers and tomatoes require about 12 inches of space between each plant.
There are lots of great books that can provide useful and timeless information for those wishing to grow their own food. Check out your local library and/or bookstore for titles and a quick search on the internet can bring up lots of good websites.
