The Advantages of Growing It Yourself

Grow It Yourself

Well-being and health

  • Planting, weeding, and watering your garden are activities that may be simply introduced into your daily routine.

  • Gardening is a relaxing method to spend time outside in the fresh air, doesn't matter if you live in a house or apartment. This is beneficial to our mental and physical health.

  • As you start growing your own fruits and veggies, your interest in fresh, healthy produce grows, so it will probably influence what you eat, in a positive way, as you begin to love the fresh stuff you've grown.

  • Gardening can be viewed as a relief from the stresses of everyday life. 


Growing your own food provides several environmental advantages:

  • Growing without the use of herbicides and pesticides, will minimize air and water pollution. Eating only Organic fruits, vegetables & herbs is always a healthier choice.

  • Food cultivated at home does not require transportation from farm to market. Because planes, ships, trucks, and cars are not used to transport the food to your plate, air pollution is reduced.

  • Food waste is decreased because you are less inclined to throw food away after you have worked hard to prepare it.

  • There is no packaging and consequently no plastic to disposal.

Family Time

Food isn't the only thing that will grow and bloom when you plant and grow your own garden; your relationships will as well.

  • A garden can be developed with the participation of the entire family. Kids will enjoy the chance to get their hands dirty, and parents will appreciate the chance to pass on their knowledge to the next generation.

  • Planting a garden provides individuals a reason to go outside. This break from the monotony of a screen enables family members to interact and communicate.

  • Gardens can be grown as part of a communal project to foster community cohesiveness and partnerships.


  • Home-grown food saves money, and a thriving garden can provide all of your fruit, herb, and vegetable requirements.

  • Your shopping list will reduce as you integrate fresh fruit and veggies into your meals once they are easily accessible in your garden.
