With the high cost of fruits and vegetables in the grocery store, why not simply grow your own in your own back yard. You'll have much fresher cleaner food to eat, improving your health while saving money on groceries. You are also taking a giant step towards a eco-friendly lifestyle by growing your own produce. It will connect you with your neighbors, and have a positive impact on family life by teaching children about the importance of food quality and production. All while protecting the planet. Or maybe even earn a secondary source of income by selling the fruits of your labor at a farmers market.
