When most people think of gardening, they think of large in ground plots or raised beds. From my experience, this picture tends to intimidate many people. Particularly those who are on a limited income, have limited space and time, live in a space where HOAs or landlords do not allow any renovations or changes, or are new to gardening and not quite ready to take the plunge into a large garden space. One of the most common reactions to gardening I receive when people come into the Native Seeds/SEARCH retail store is that they would love to do more if they were able to, but one of these reasons mentioned above keeps them from doing so. I tell these folks and whoever reading this blog post that every garden (large, small, container, or in ground) makes a difference when it comes to the larger goal of food sovereignty and promoting local food.
