Edible gardens in Melbourne used to only be a thing of the past. Rapid growth all over Australia has made gardening a rather time consuming hobby especially since produce has become so readily available to us. Yet the edible gardens are making a comeback of late as people are becoming more and more conscious about the food they put into their bodies and feed to their families. With rising prices and the fear of ingesting pesticide laden produce Australia is starting to look into growing its own produce once again.
4 Reasons to Grow Your Own Produce
Makes Good Health More Accessible to You and Your Own Family
Nothing beats having fresh produce in your own backyard. Having them that fresh actually changes their nutritional value significantly. Having those fresh means you can pick them at their nutritional peak because you don’t have to pick them prematurely to be able to transport them. A study also shows that children who grow up eating fresh produce are more likely to eat and enjoy them through adulthood. Mostly because fresh produce tastes so much better!
Ever wonder how our Grammies used to be so fit? They kept moving that’s why, to tend to their gardens specifically. Weeding, planting, and landscaping these are all back breaking hard work. If you don’t believe me, then why do all the gardeners I ever see on TV have six-packs?
Reduce Your Carbon Footprint
Growing your food organically means that you are saving the earth from needless pollution brought about by pesticides. It also means that the produce you consume did not have to use up fuel to be transported to your home and eventually to your plates.
Saves You Money
Have you ever had to go back to the groceries because you realized the vegetables in your crisper have all wilted? Do you remember how much gas that consumed? With the rising prices of gas having your own “supermarket” right in your backyard means that your trips to the grocers will be minimized. The money you save from buying fruits and vegetables that you are now growing in you edible garden can also be appropriated for your family’s other needs.
