We are looking for participants...
hey hey cousin Josephine!
...to take part in the final story of the series “Gardening from Coast to Coast”.
Send in a photo of your edible plot with a short paragraph of why you love growing food.
It can be a pot of herbs on your patio or an entire garden....all is welcome.
We're going to do this journey backwards, forwards, and upside down! I'm determined to juggle your perspective on gardening......"eewww gardening's for people who like dirt and bugs, eat bland food, and have lots of land." I say, HORSE FEATHERS!
As I'm slicing my California grown grapefruit I can’t help but think of the people who work long hours for low wages, to pick the food we eat. Thanks to their backbreaking hard work, people like myself are able to enjoy the "fruits of their labors."
I'm also grateful to the farmers who do their best to provide quality, hormone free, non-genetically altered..... Real Food - Against the financial odds!
In my Garden series this month, I'll be encouraging everyone to grow, try, and simply eat Real Food. And if I can pay tribute to and honor the people who feed us by simply telling their stories, then my efforts will be, in part, worthwhile.
In case you missed what local kids in LA are growing, check out the Gardens in Schools Blog.
Get ready, Get ready, Get ready!
I find everyday I live & breathe to be a gift.
