How to Improve the Family Diet Without a Garden!

 

Though food prices seem to have stabilized a little, since 2008 food prices have continued to rocket due to biofuels, and the get quick rich schemes of bankers and investors. Currently, as employment reliability becomes a burgeoning issue and wages/salaries do not rise with inflation, many employed cannot afford a decent healthy meal. One creative upshot from this living reality, is the growing trend of urban agriculture, as individuals and families take their food security into their own hands, joining those who took up their own food security out of a well-founded growing mistrust as to what is being put in our ever so processed, adulterated and synthetic food.

By doing so, one reclaims not only the right to eat food that one can afford, but food free of man-made chemicals, and genetic engineering, as well as learning to take a more creative control over one’s life. For those without a garden or a plot of land, Rachel Cernansky came up with a brilliant idea in 2010 from micro-gardening: 66 things one can grow without a garden. Here it is presented again, for those of us who missed the opportunity first time around! The trick is in using the right type of container.
