Start a garden project

Not able or willing to start a garden project and you want fresh veggies at home? If this is a goal switch your focus from what you can’t do to what you can. For example maybe you can:

  • Grow microgreens- these nutrient dense greens grow easily in a shallow container. Place in a sunny window and you will have a healthy addition to your salads and meals in a week or two.
  • Join a food co-op.
  • Check your neighborhood for weekly farmer’s markets
  • Barter for veggies with a neighbor that has planted a garden
  • Start with some easy to grow lettuce like arugula – it grows quickly with just a small investment of time and money.
  • Consider planting a shared container or roof top garden at work, at your community center or place of worship if possible. Everyone can share the workload and the bounty.
