Family Grows Garden in Backyard Swimming Pool. When Dennis McClung takes a dip in his backyard swimming pool, it isn't to practice his backstroke or cool off from the hot Arizona sun.
It's to tend to the subterranean garden – chock full of vegetables, fish and even chickens – that has become his family's primary source of food. That's right. Instead of spending thousands of dollars fixing up the crumbling swimming pool in their backyard or filling it up with dirt, the McClung family turned the potentially dangerous, run-down pool into their own minifarm in the desert.
McClung, 30, said that when he and his wife Danielle first saw their Mesa, Arizona house in 2009, they knew it would be perfect for their young family. Garden Pool Feeds Family of Four.
