by AmandaWe have a variety of gardening experience in our team here at American Meadows, ranging from beginner gardeners all the way to Master Gardeners and those who have their own farms. We were curious why they are all so passionate about gardening and asked, "Why do you garden?" Their answers are below and you can fill out the form at the bottom of the blog to tell us why you garden! Ethan: "Gardening connects me. It connects me to people, places and times that make me smile." Wendy: "I garden because I love coming down my driveway and seeing my garden in full bloom to greet me. It makes me smile every time." Charles: "I garden because my livestock need specifically formulated forage which includes different types of grass and vegetables." Matthew: "I garden because nothing beats veggies that you grew yourself!" Terry: "I garden for flavor and also to know where my food comes from and how it's grown." Stacy: "The kiss of the sun for pardon, the song of the birds for mirth, One is nearer God's heart in a garden than anywhere else on earth." Kelli: "Because I love, love, love being outdoors and breathing in the clean, fresh air." Schuyler: "Because I'm embarrassed that I didn't already know how to." Mike 'The Seed Man' Lizotte: "I enjoying teaching my daughter all about the “birds and the bees” of gardening!"
