WorldFoodGarden.org was founded under the premise that many of the world's current issues- environmental, economic, and political, would be much alleviated if everyone in the world tended their own small garden. Gardening is a resource we all have the right to use to keep our minds, bodies and planet healthy.
Currently, the average meal in the US is shipped over 1500 miles before reaching the dinner plate, contributing to global warming via carbon emissions, and maintaining our unhealthy reliance on oil. This excess fuel consumption also increases international tensions.We believe there is a simple solution, right in our own back yards (or windowsills) - Small Food Gardens. Sure, one window-box tomato plant won't change the world alone, but collectively, a world full of small food gardens could make a HUGE difference! WorldFoodGarden.org's mission is to make this simple solution visible and as easy as possible for the masses by using the internet to offer free planning tools, networking, and location specific information to gardeners across the land.
