Just as important than all the utility of gardening:
* Reducing dependence on a broken food system
* Restoring & regenerating the local ecology
* Inspiring personal relationship with the natural world
Growing food is perhaps the last unifying language we have across all constructs such as the political spectrum, socioeconomic status, religion, and race. Gardening provides common ground and reminds us of our shared heritage.
Gardeners this is our last stand, refuse to let this broken society divide us!
