Growing For Your Health

Lettuce

Have you ever had the pleasure of enjoying a salad with vegetables picked fresh from the garden? It is delicious, organic and loaded with essential vitamins and minerals!

The food you eat should not only taste good, but should also be good for you. We encourage healthy living by supplying the tools and equipment to grow fruits, vegetables and herbs at home! We’ll help get you on your way to creating and managing a new, healthier lifestyle through year-round home gardening. In just a short time, you can be growing non-GMO, organic produce and herbs.

Basil

What's a GMO?

A GMO or genetically modified organism is an organism whose genetic material has been altered. Many seeds have been genetically modified in order to produce larger plants, help prevent disease and resist pests. Many fruits, vegetables and herbs grown from genetically modified seeds are sitting on the shelves of local grocery stores!

Peppers

Fresh veggies, fruits & herbs

Can be the center of your meal or add flavor to any dish. Vegetables and fruits are packed with vitamins. Herbs add a burst of flavor, especially when fresh! Herbs also have healing qualities. (Expand your new healthy lifestyle. Investigate herbal remedies for health benefits before turning to pharmaceuticals!)

Wheatgrass

Wheatgrass

One ounce of wheatgrass juice has the health equivalent of 2.5 lbs of vegetables! This plant is loaded with chlorophyll, amino acids, minerals, vitamins, and enzymes. The typical American diet simply does not have the living components of these materials.

Wheatgrass contains 70% chlorophyll, which mimics hemoglobin in our blood. For this reason wheatgrass is dynamic at cleaning the blood. Taking a shot of wheatgrass is literally a daily blood infusion! It grows fast and it's easy to grow.

Wheatgrass is most potent when ingested within 15 minutes of juicing. After 15 minutes all living food begins to break down, the magic is lost. Can you name one thing in your diet that is eaten within 15 minutes of harvest?

Sprouts and microgreens

Sprouts & microgreens

Anyone who has purchased sprouts at the grocery store knows that the quality can vary greatly. For pennies a day, you can have fresh, crispy, nutritionally-packed sprouts by growing your own at home.

Sprouts are high in protein, essential amino acids, digestive enzymes, vitamins, minerals, and (when exposed to light) chlorophyll. Sprouts add lively flavor and texture to tossed salads and sandwiches. The culinary possibilities are endless.

Hydroponics

Take the Next Step

Take the next step in healthy living! Getting started is easy! We recommend beginning with a small, inexpensive set-up. Plant just a few of your favorite vegetables, fruits, or herbs. You will quickly be able to enjoy fresh, flavorful, homegrown, non-GMO, organic produce. As your thumb gets greener and your crops grow bigger, you can easily expand your garden. When you're ready, try adding different varieties of the plants you are growing or try new plants altogether!
