Welcome to Growing the Garden

This is a blog about gardening, with a focus on urban/suburban and community gardening.

Have you ever tasted a fresh, ripe tomato that you grew yourself?

Fresh vegetables and fruits can fill our bellies, while the beauty of flowers and shrubs can fill the soul. Towns tend to be ugly and unproductive, with grass lawns sucking up valuable water resources giving nothing back but a high utility bill.

Imagine a new urban landscape with front yards bursting with succulent tomatoes, and apples falling from the trees. Imagine acres of grass wastelands turned into productive, attractive fruit and vegetable gardens. Imagine little community gardens tucked into nooks and crannies, roofs and backyards. Imagine little walkways constructed over busy roads so that gardeners with wheel barrows have safe access to freeway cloverleaf interiors and road intersection medians. That is the world I want to live in, and this blog is to help get to that goal - one garden at a time.
