Gardening is quickly becoming popular again in American backyards throughout the country as homeowners become increasingly suspicious of the food products offered in grocery stores by huge agri-corporations that load their products with preservatives, dyes and other chemicals to make them more edible and last longer on the shelves.

Learn what you can do to take control of your food and create a life-long passion for gardening.
