Growing Food That’s True Medicine in YOUR Garden
At Whole Health Gardening our focus is on growing healthy nutritional vegetables worthy of being called medicine. We believe we need to Start Talking About the Quality of Our Food!
Because right now today, we don’t talk about food quality at harvest time enough! To be fair, we have started a conversation acknowledging that many of the fruits and veggies we eat are harvested way too early giving growers time to allow their veggies to ripen in transit – this includes those labeled “vine-ripened”, by the way! While the upside is that we consumers are presented with picture-perfect produce, the downside of ripening-in-transit is that we’re also missing out on a slew of nutrients! Plants need time to deliver all of the nutritional goodies into their final fruit and vegetable packages.
Food as medicine is possible, and so is a disease-free garden. At Whole Health Gardening we’ll take you on a fascinating adventure that introduces you to an alternative approach to organic gardening; one that your friends and neighbors likely haven’t heard of yet. You can listen and learn with us on the Grow Better Greens Show on iTunes or come over to Whole Health Gardening and access our free video series about growing food that truly deserves to be called medicine.
