Not that being part of a trend is ever a good reason to start something new, but if it helps you move forward by being part of the “in” crowd, then you really need to plant your own edible garden.

That’s right, having your own vegetable garden is now trendy. In fact, there are more households with herb garden than ever before.

There is nothing more local than food grown in your own backyard, your windowsills, or on patio containers.

Growing your own fruits and vegetables means that you know exactly what does and does not go into your food and exactly where it comes from.

So, aside from its health benefits, do you need some other reasons to grown your own food?

I would imagine Dominica might have an an advantage to individuals looking to supplement their diet with home grown fruits and vegetables when compared to much of the rest of the world. Something to do with the weather and volcanic soils… 🙂

Health and low cost! We like to purchase produce from our neighbors too; it helps us all.
