What your favorite grocery store doesn’t want you to discover . . . 1 in 3 American households grow their own food.
Just let that sink in for a second.
The number of families involved in gardening has increased by 200% since 2008.
Perhaps people have lost faith in mass-produced food, or maybe they’ve gotten tired of the lack of transparency when it comes to the production process—is it possible that we might be eating produce that’s actually bad for us?
Fortunately, in recent years, our collective awareness has finally shifted to our health.
We now know that our wellbeing, and that of our environment, is being gambled with for the sake of increased revenues and lower production costs—and collectively, we’ve started taking action.
It may come at no surprise then, that since around 1940, we have seen an up to 40% decline in the nutritional value of produce.
Food producers nowadays use a copious amount of fertilizers and genetically modified hybrid plants that have been developed to quickly produce a big yield at the cost of quality.
But now, you have the means to noticeably improve the quality of the products you eat, your physical and mental health, and play an active role in saving the environment by contributing to reducing pollution and lowering food waste.
The answer to a more ethical and sustainable life lies in the most unexpected places: your backyard.
