Food tastes way better when you grow your own. Growing your own food also comes with many other positives.

“A person who is growing a garden, if he is growing it organically, is improving a piece of the world. He is producing something to eat, which makes him somewhat independent of the grocery business, but he is also enlarging, for himself, the meaning of food and the pleasure of eating,” says the famous writer, environmental activist and farmer Wendell Berry.

“To forget how to dig the earth and to tend the soil is to forget ourselves.” ~ Mahatma Gandhi
