I grew up surrounded by gardens.
My neighbours were farmers. My parents were avid growers. And my childhood chores included gardening.
It was a lifestyle in my household and still is today.
If you’re like me, you’re interested in gardening. You probably already have some form of garden at home, even if it’s a small cactus—we all start somewhere!
After moving away from the country and into a city apartment, gardening became increasingly difficult. No matter what I tried, my plants just wouldn’t sprout. With fertilizers and grow lights, these guys remained seeds.
You might wonder why I was so persistent on indoor gardening. Well, there’s a good reason! I wanted to sustainably grow my own food to guarantee the quality.
That way I don’t have to rely on labels to know that my food is grown without GMOs and the use of harmful pesticides. I also know that no matter what happens at the supermarket, I’ll have a steady stream of fresh vegetables and fruit to support my family.
With the current state of the world, you never know when you’ll need these skills.
If you currently live off store-bought food, it is likely you are consuming GMOs and pesticides which can be detrimental to your health. More specifically, GMO and pesticide-contaminated food can cause immune problems, accelerated aging, and allergies.
