Saving Money

If you are frustrated by the price of organic produce at markets like Whole Foods (“Whole Paycheck”), growing your own food is a great alternative that will allow you to achieve a more healthy lifestyle while caring for the planet and not breaking the bank. Growing food from seed is the cheapest way to go, although seedlings are still a great value considering the yield you will obtain from a single plant. Choosing perennial crops will mean an even greater cost savings because you only have to buy the plant once, but it produces food season after season.
