Garden Philosophy: I believe that your life is dramatically enriched by having a garden whether it be large or small. Gardening brings you peace, friends, and an opportunity to brightens your mind with education and your body with hands in the dirt work. If you don’t know where to start, get help. If you know what you want, get started. And have fun.
