Gardening – Soon to be an ancient secret

Many of us remember at some stage during our childhood when parents and grandparents spent many a day passing on basic and advanced gardening skills to us, with those children fortunate enough to have been allocated a small lot within their garden to grow-your-own. Also the memories of watching the little gardens grow, waiting to eat the results of what our little hands sewed.

Devestatingly now it seems that such childhood experiences and acquired gardening knowledge is almost a thing of the past – something they will in future read about in history classes about how “they” lived “back then”.

We recommend to all not just to teach gardening but to think of way for that knowledge to be retained and past on to future generations. Full article here.

    Just the opposite in the Pacific NW or West Coast. Has been great resurgence of gardening and food prep for a decade now…from buy locally mantra to people tending a small garden plot like it was fifty years ago.

    Great resurgence of gardening in Pacific NW for a decade now. Common sites of community gardens and individual gardens. Locally grown produce a bit hit. Much like it was in the 50’s and 60’s when back yard gardens were the norm in my neighborhood. My 22 year old daughter was ‘canning’ with her grandmother this week!
