5 reasons why you should grow food

Today, there is only one planet, and we all share it. We have to stop the destruction of the earth because we live here and our families will continue to live here.

  1. Food inflation is approaching and surpassing levels not seen since the last financial crisis… No one wants to be hungry.
  2. Employed or not… growing your own food increases your productivity and decreases stress. It’s a great way to disconnect from the world and invest in yourself.
  3. The climate is changing. People in certain regions are getting less sun, more heat, dryer summers, etc. When you grow your own organic food, you consume more antioxidants.
  4. Your local food supply depends on it. Over the last decades, heirloom genetics and crucial breeding projects have declined. By growing food, you can cultivate these important types of food so that we can maintain genetic diversity.
  5. You’ll leave a legacy for your family and community. Once you start gardening successfully, you’ll want to share it with so many people. If you teach others how to garden, you’re going to impact generations beyond the ones alive today.
