Home edible organic Gardening
Home health gardening is a broader concept than the traditional gardening concept that we often defer to. There are few who can argue the biggest juiciest tomato is usually the winner, but there is much more to home gardening than the great nutrition that tomato will provide once consumed. As a strong proponent of horticulture therapy, Gardens of California ® recognizes substantial intangible rewards that are often overlooked or neglected when designing and working in a garden. The garden provides a nurturing safe environment in which we may think and heal, and strengthen our bodies and minds. Families, couples and individuals may use the garden to build their own family tree on which they print their life story. I, myself, see my garden as a canvas that tells the story of my life; developed as I have developed over the years. Together or alone, the garden is a hospice of nurturing and growth.
