The average suburban home has around 2500 sq feet of lawn. What if we grew food instead of grass? We would create new food economies that could help bring neighbors together through healthy living.
Homegrown food tastes better. Plain and simple. Here’s why: the food you grow at home is fresher, and in season, which delivers better taste.
You will be healthier. You can eat foods at the height of their nutritional value – just picked! You will also find yourself eating more veggies.
Homegrown food is safer. Local foods are handled less, and have less exposure to contaminants than supermarket and restaurant foods. Comparatively, local foods are also stored for shorter periods of time. Taking that to the next level are foods grown in your own yard. Homegrown foods are the LEAST handled and the LEAST exposed and almost never stored. Usually you pick what you need. Homegrown is the safest food you can eat. No E. coli on you my friend.
Take a stand. For local food. Fresh food. Organic food. Non-genetically modified food. For farmers. Clean water. Clean air. Citizen rights!
