Grow Better Greens: The Big Idea

The big idea is that no matter your experience level (aka the color of your thumb), or even the types of veggies that you grow:

You can boost the nutrients per calorie in your homegrown food while simultaneously getting some relief from pest and disease pressure.

Super-healthy food comes from super-healthy plants – the kind of plants that have strong immune systems thanks to their ability to access the nutrients in their soil.

We talk about all of this and more on the show – though we’ve since parted ways as business partners. (We were selling seeds on Amazon as well as an online gardening course – but both ended up behind desks with 9 to 5 jobs!)

We are still great friends and I was able to land myself a job at an awesome seed company.
