Food gardening is one of the most popular pastimes in gardening today. There is something special about growing your own that is just not the same as supermarket convenience. Over the past few years we have seen how the world has taken to planting something for the table at home. Sometimes it's a practical kitchen growing operation but for most it's a few herbs or veggies and experimenting with something different.
They have proven that children who grow their own food become gardeners as they grow up and have a better understanding and appreciation for nature and the environment. It could be as simple as letting them grow a patch of carrots or getting involved in the whole process as an outdoor activity away from the electronic screens they use all the time.
