Tallahassee, Fl (#WTXLdigital) -- One woman grows her own food... right in her front yard. She hopes to inspire others to start planting their own fruits and vegetables.

Three years ago, Arianne Titsworth started researching food and began to grow her own fruits and vegetables.

"I decided if I grew my own things I would know where they came from and  I wouldn't have to worry about what was in them" she said.

Arianne started small but now has a wide variety of food growing. In the spring, she grows enough to feed her family a meal everyday.

After becoming successful at growing food herself, Arianne decided to help others do the same. She created a Facebook page dedicated to motivating and supporting urban gardeners in Tallahassee.

In response to her hopes for the page Arianne said, "I really want to inspire other people to grow their own food".

Anyone can start their own urban gardening, no matter how small a space you live in, according to Titsworth.
