Grow Your Own Food and Reduce Your Impact on the Environment


Have you ever thought about the impact you have on the environment by just eating? After all, that food you eat has to be shipped over hundreds or even thousands of miles to your local market. Eating locally is a good idea, but an even better idea is to grow your own food. Here are some reasons:

1.    Control the quality – The first reason why you should grow your own food is to control the quality of what you put into your body. If you grow your food you can avoid pesticides and unnatural fertilizers. Instead you can plant according to your area and use natural pesticides to keep your veggies growing strong. You can also grow heirloom plants that are naturally pest resistant and offer better nutrition.  They also taste better!

2.    Cut your bills –We spend a lot of money at the grocery store. Every month we go and but the things we need. But what if you only had to buy a handful of things? Growing your own food allows you to eat good food without having to pay for it. Seeds and starter plants are cheap, as cheap as dirt, and they grow fast providing you with a great selection.

3.    Eat seasonally –Another thing that is beneficial about growing your own food is that you eat seasonally. This can help you to come up with new recipes and try new foods. Seasonal foods taste better.

Growing your own food is easy no matter where you live. Even if you do not have a large outdoor space you can still grow plants in window boxes or vertical gardens along a wall or balcony. Save the environment from more transportation costs and over farming. It is easy to get started and eat healthier in the bargain.
