Organic Vegetable Garden USA Tour

I am an advocate for everyone who wants to grow an organic vegetable garden to be able to do so.

I travelled for 40 days from June 4 -July 13, 2015.  I drove 17322 km (10763 miles), visited 15 gardens (2 preferred I did not write about them) and went through 27 states.  A fun and inspirational trip.  

To grow at least some of ones own vegetables we can save money, we eat healthier and we support our environment and the food security of our families.  My trip was to visit other gardeners throughout USA and Canada to see how they were doing it and hopefully to inspire others along the way.

I saw 15 very different gardens - check out the full articles below.  Everyone grew pretty much the same vegetables, however each garden was very unique. They were growing in different climates, areas of the country, rural and urban, large and small, weedy and manicured; all were fascinating and best of all I was able to me some wonderful, generous gardeners and their families. 

I wanted to connect with the people growing and I truly was able to do this and want to thank all the gardeners and their families for inviting me into their homes and yards.

I saw some new ways to garden that I had never thought about and was able to offer some support to them as well.  

I got great feedback from my later garden visits that they were inspired by my trip and were able to pick up some tips from the other gardeners that I had visited.  My other goal of inspiring others was accomplished.

Thank you to all the organic vegetable gardens that I was able to visit.
