The gardening movement is one that’s close to my heart. This is how you get food to the people. How can you talk about good nutrition, organics and veganism without available food? A friend of mine is growing food in her yard to give to the elderly near her for example. I grew up able to pick produce out of neighbor’s yards. I was happy to pick pears with my daughter from my next door neighbor’s yard. I’ve been having my hands in the dirt myself hoping to provide fresh produce for my home and other family members. One of the things that stood out for me in this video is the lady in reference to the produce “It actually tastes like something.” I’ve heard this before from people who do not like vegetables. Their tongues aren’t dead, the food is. I’ve bought produce from the grocery store before that looked good, but was a watery, tasteless mess. A couple of reasons are they’ve been shipped long distances and are provided out of season.
