Do you love to garden and grow your own food? Are you very particular about the food you eat? Are you passionate about what goes into your body?
Growing your own veggies and fruits is probably the best way to be completely certain that your food is healthy and organic, thus free of chemicals and pesticides. For some of us, it’s a hobby – others do it to promote an organic lifestyle or to simply bring about a positive change in the society.
Plus there are other benefits too. One of the many benefits of growing your own organic produce is the money it will save you in the long-run. An initial investment of about $150 on an organic garden can yield you over $1,000 in produce over time. You can get started by purchasing seasonal organic seeds for your garden. Gardening is also a great family activity that teaches children to work as a team and the value in nurturing something. Kids feel proud to harvest and eat the fruits and vegetables they’ve grown. Studies have claimed that gardening can reduce stress and enhance your mood.
