William Woys Weaver, one of our great seed savers, once said:
"Once you learn what's truly available out there in the world to eat. The limits of our grocery stores are really frightening. There is so much possibility open to us and one way to tap into that it is through the tradition of a kitchen or community garden. "
Our gardens to be nourish both body and soul. They provide us a place to get outside and active, along with a space to unplug and enjoy a moment of mental calm.
Furthermore a diverse garden helps us nourish a deeper connection with our culture and discover others. Many of these heirloom varieties have been an integral aspect of food culture around the world. Celebrate your heritage by growing a truly Dutch cabbage, or Dominican pigeon peas and partaking in the meals that it was originally grown for. We can bring our own heritage to our tables along with the food it inspires.
We can also use the opportunity to connect to other cultures in a visceral and engaging way. A fried eggplant dish made with Turkish eggplants, has a unique flavor that can help you experience that culture in a truly visceral way. The key to that authentic Thai dish you had on your last vacation, just might be the Mei Qing pac Choi that you can now grow in your own backyard. Even better when we share those dishes with our friends and community we help share and solidify bonds with the people around us. A diverse and beautiful garden helps us support and build a nourishing culture in ways that we may never have thought possible.
We also want our gardens to taste great! Come and grow something new that you might never find in a grocery store or even the farmer's market.
Great flavor encourages us to eat more vegetables along with whole unprocessed foods. More variety in our gardens inspire new healthy recipes based on real food. Different varieties can also help to make our favorite dishes even better. We can find the perfect variety of cauliflower for the best cheesy cauliflower party dip, or that special type of carrot that brings the most flavor to your winter time soup! Homegrown Nurseries can help you find that perfect variety to add to your pot.
We can grow vegetables that have been bred for nothing but the best flavor, best textures, and best colors. Bring flavors from around the world to our table or find something that no one else has access to. Imagine drinks with friends with a unique mint or yellow celery garnish that no one has seen before.
Grow something that you never have before - explore, experiment, and enjoy vegetables that you have never seen in your garden before.
