Why Grow Food
Mar 23 @ 12:00 pm – 2:30 pm
Why Grow Food @ Sacramento | CA | US

Growing your own food has many health benefits:



  • It helps you eat more fresh fruits and vegetables.

  • You decide what kinds of fertilizers and pesticides come in contact with your food.

  • It lets you control when to harvest your food. Vegetables that ripen in the garden have more nutrients than some store-bought vegetables that must be picked early.


These are the obvious benefits, however after growing food for 10 years starting in his backyard, Chanowk realized that there are more benefits to growing food than just what you eat.


The result is this seminar which distills Chanowk's 10 years of experience of growing food into a presentation which answers the question...WHY GROW FOOD?


After this presentation, there will be a question and answer period as well as a tour of Yisrael Family Farms.


Love offering : $5, minimum donation : $1. This is how YOU transform the hood for good.
