From gardening for health to the “accidental” farmer.
In early 2013 after too many years of battling with high blood pressure, David decided to make a real change in the kind of food he was putting in his body. This is his inspiring story.
Today’s agriculture uses predominantly chemical pesticides and fertilizer, Genetically Engineered (GE) and Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO) seeds. These are bound to have negative effects on the population and the environment, so I decided that I wanted to go organic.
The Prodigal Gardener
Living in the farm country of western NYS on a few nice acres made it seem like a no-brainer to have a garden. This was not a totally new thing to me, as I grew up in New England and the family garden was always a part of life. So like anyone should, I started reading and researching everything I could on both old and new ways of thinking on the organic garden. When I felt that I was confident enough in what I was doing, I sat down to draw up a garden plan.
