WHY WE GROW
"A home veggie patch provides fast, environmentally friendly delicious food"
MORE THAN JUST GARDENING
Growing your own food is more than just gardening, it can bring a whole different joy to your household. It is a connection to the natural world around you, a physical, mental and emotional bond between your food and your family. Working in the dirt gets your body moving, your brain glowing (working in the soil helps your brain to release serotonin, the happy hormone), it's fun, delicious and hugely rewarding.
IMPROVE YOUR BUDGET
Having your own home veggie patch can not only benefit your mind and body but also your home budget. With living costs and grocery bills rising, your home veggie plot can be a valuable asset. Fresh, seasonal, organically grown produce available to you and your family in the convenience of your home.
Growing your own food captures the attention of every member of the family. It provokes the imagination of children and broadens their understanding of where their food comes from. Veggie gardens invite nature into your home, they bring friendly pollinators, floral displays and provide an opportunity to get creative in the kitchen.
"People I speak to often express their desire to grown their own food but don't, due to lack of gardening knowledge, bad past experiences or just sheer confusion. This is where I step in, to inspire, create and support others in their home veggie gardening journey. "
