Why grow your own food?
Phil, the Smiling Gardener’s goal in the garden is not only to grow food but to grow food that is substantially more nutritious than any food you can buy.
Even if you’re lucky enough to shop at a local, organic farmer’s market, most farmers can’t put the effort into growing food that’s as nutritious as what you can grow yourself.
Depending on which nutrient we’re measuring, food grown today is 20-80% lower in nutrition than it was in the 1940s, and with some knowledge and practice, you can get these nutrients back into your food.
Many human health problems are the result of nutritional deficiencies, and nutrient-dense food is medicine. It’s a great thing to have your own medicine outside your kitchen door.

While Phil’s Thrive for Good gardening course is free, he would love it if you can donate to the NGO not-for-profit called Thrive For Good. Thrive empowers people with the training and simple tools they need to grow an abundance of healthy, organic, disease-fighting foods for life, sustainably.
