This past weekend, Mason and I attended our local Urban Farm Tour. Together with some good friends, we visited about a half-dozen backyard gardens. Some were located at private homes, while others were at schools and community centers. It was such an inspiring day.
Mason and I are attempting garden wholeheartedly this year – with a raised bed for veggies and potted herbs – and this weekend’s tour was so encouraging!
I think events like these are really important. I got to see what strategies others are using and believe that it is possible for Mason and me to actually be gardeners. There is something vital about growing our own food and sharing our experience with others, and it’s nice to know that we don’t have to have a massive farming operation to make a difference in what we eat.
Here’s to health and fresh, homegrown summer produce!
