My mission is to inspire people of all ages to start gardening and growing some of their own food close to home.
It’s easy to grow a few veggies, fruit and berries in containers or raised beds in your own little garden right by the back door.
Gardening in small spaces and in other creative ways is nothing like “farming” in the traditional sense.
The type of gardening that I’m talking about can be easily done in a small amount of space or even vertically with less effort.
It’s important to include annual and perennial flowers of all sorts to attract other pollinators. Many creatures other than bees help out with pollination, these include hummingbirds and beneficial insects such as dragonflies and ladybugs.
Beneficial insects are a bonus and very helpful too because they’ll eat the unwelcome bugs that will cause destruction in the garden. Growing flowers is a good way to encourage and increase in bee populations as well.
Another huge benefit to growing food yourself is that you earn the awesome privilege of tasting what “fresh picked” actually tastes like. The flavour of home-grown veggies and fruit is nothing like the veggies in the grocery store. They just taste better and are more delicious.
