Ran across this wonderful quote this morning from one of my favorite writers, Michael Pollan.
It answers the question I'm asked frequently, why spend the time/energy/etc. planting a garden?
"Measured against the Problem We Face, planting a garden sounds pretty benign, I know, but in fact it's one of the most powerful things an individual can do--to reduce your carbon footprint, sure, but more important, to reduce your sense of dependence and dividedness: to change the cheap-energy mind."
And I ask, why NOT plant a garden?
