Lets Face it – we live in turbulent times! Not many know what the future holds!
Do you have a clue what would happen in your community or nation if transportation were paralyzed or if we had a war, a shortage of food or even a depression?
How long would you or your neighbors be able to obtain food from the grocery store?
President Ezra Taft Benson said, “An almost forgotten means of economic self-reliance is the home production of food. We are too accustomed to going to stores and purchasing what we need. By producing some of our food we reduce, to a great extent, the impact of inflation on our money.”
President Spencer W Kimball gave great advice “to grow all the food that you feasibly can on your own property”. Possibly it would be easier to apply this great advice; if we were to think of gardening as a means to protect against unforeseeable stormy weather!
Gardening can also be a beneficial project for the family; it provides nutritional food for the kitchen table and the actual work creates a wholesome environment for family relationships.
