Garden as if your life depended on it....

Garden as if your life depended on it...because it does, according to Ellen LaConte, an author writing on the AlterNet.com website.

According to Ms. LaConte, there are at least five reasons why more of us should "take up the spade, make some compost, and start gardening with a vengeance."

The price of food will "roller-coaster" making budgeting impossible, some foods will become very expensive and other foods will simply become unavailable.

Please read the article to find out why we should plant more gardens.

Note: I just discovered that Ellen also posted the article on her website. You can read it at http://www.ellenlaconte.com/thoughtful-food/

She also has a thoughtful, excellent newsletter called Starting Point. I highly recommend it!

Happy trails!
