Not sure if an herb & veggie garden is right for you? Read on for benefits.

Cost Efficient.
A packet of vegetable seeds costs a dollar or two, and a 4″ pot is less than $10. You can yield hundreds of plants from each. Compare that expense vs what you would pay at a local market. Plus, think of the additional time + money you save on gas and travel.

Eco-conscious.
The input of energy + the size of your carbon footprint significantly reduces when your produce is “yard to table.” Hyperlocal is an incredible eco-conscious practice for greener living.

Do it for the kids.
Growing your own food teaches kids where food comes from and how it’s grown. Research shows that kids are more likely to eat veggies when they are part of the growing process.

Do it for the chef.
Whether it’s you or someone else in your household that does the cooking, they will enjoy preparing meals that include fresh produce you’ve grown yourself.

Do it for you.
Fresh air is good for the soul. And since you’ll be planting, weeding, watering and harvesting on a regular basis, you are sure to get some exercise along the way.

Share your gifts with others.
Garden gifts are special because you are sharing the nurture + care that went into cultivating something. Friends, neighbors, family and coworkers may even feel inspired to connect with plants thanks to you!
