It’s true that food gardens are part of the solution to healthier people and communities. Why? Because of its many benefits. Food gardening is more economical – you can save a substantial amount of money from growing your own food. Buying quality vegetables can be surprisingly expensive, especially if you’re surviving on a tight budget. Another benefit is that food gardening produces healthier and fresher products than those found in the shops. Also, because the food is organically grown and lacking harmful chemicals, it tastes better than buying it from a store. Convinced? If so, this course can show you everything you need to know about producing your own food. It presents a step-by-step guide of topics from the planning, building, and planting of vegetables, herbs, and fruit to tips on how to undertake maintenance of your garden.
