Home grown food

Gardens do not have to be big in order to be beneficial. You can start out with just a few herbs on your windowsill, a simple container of salad greens on the porch, or build a few raised beds along your walkway. It’s now easier to take care of your plants with our online information from watering, sunlight, feeding, and pruning.

Plant perks

Save money

Growing your own food can help cut the cost of the grocery bill. Instead of spending your dollars at the store spend time learning to grow your own food. 

Reduce carbon footprint

When your food travels around the world to get to you, it uses lots of energy which means lots of greenhouse gases. It’s not just the distance, it’s also the refrigeration along the way, and the energy that goes into packaging the food for the journey and storing it when it arrives. 


Fruits and vegetables that ripen naturally in the garden and are consumed within days of harvest have more nutrients than store-bought vegetables. Grocery store produce are often picked early, shipped to warehouses, distributed to the stores, and stay in storage or on the shelf for days. During this process vital nutritional value in produce declines.

Food safety

Growing and harvesting from your backyard garden ensures you know where your food came from. Food quality has been declining for decades due to poor minerals in farming soils, and contamination of foodborne illnesses. The security of knowing how your food is grown and what is used in the process can be reason enough to grow your own..
