Gardening for Healthful Living

Post by notmartha » Wed Jan 08, 2014 3:34 pm

Part of healthy living is eating a healthful diet, which means avoidance of gmo’s, pesticides, and herbicides. The best way to make sure you are eating food as the Lord intended is to grow your own. I enjoy reading older gardening books, (especially during the winter months) with their more organic and simple methods. There are quite a few available free in the public domain. These are some interesting e-books I came across:
