Home edible organic Gardening
Home health gardening is a broader concept than the traditional gardening concept 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 see my garden as a canvas that tells my daily story that develops, as I have developed, over the years. Together or alone, the garden is a hospice of nurturing and growth.

If you just do not have the space for a back yard garden, there are other options. Patio .. deck .. in the house replacing non-edible plants, and even vertical gardening. If you have exhausted all possibilities why not visit your City listings for community gardens!
Gardening has so much to offer. The costs associated with a home health garden vary but soon you will see that once dividing the initial cost by any one of the numerous benefits, you will come up with a figure that is pennies on the dollar.
There will be many happy returns.
