# 8 Grow Your Own

by Community Forests International on December 16, 2012

Grow your own food. Trust us, this will improve your quality of life to no end. We can’t all be farmers, but we can spare a few hours a week caring for a small kitchen garden. Fresh tomatoes and herbs for your table and your friends’, a continuous sense of wonder at the natural world, and insight into how we all might learn to be better stewards of this earth; these are but a few of the benefits of growing your own food at home. Not to mention a reduction of food miles to mere footsteps, improvement to local food security, and a sense of pride in taking responsibility for your own nourishment and health.
