Many of us are trying to get more fruits and veggies into our diet. Want to make it easier? Try planting your own! It can be a garden in your yard, raised beds or pots on your patio. And if you don’t have room, get your neighbors involved. Community gardens are a great way to grow healthy food and bring people together. They can be set up on empty lots or in parks and schools (just be sure to check with your local city to make sure it’s ok before planting).
Another benefit to having your own garden or a shared one is being able to keep everything pesticide-free. Some flowers and herbs even act as natural pest control. So have fun, enjoy the “fruits” of your labor and plant safely.
