What inspired you to create your garden?
I grew up watching my parents and both sets of grandparents garden. Now I am the mother of three boys and want them to grow up as an example to them! I want to help nature in any way that I can. Every day is Earth Day for us! This is the least I can do to make up for what others aren't doing. Plus gardening helps me to feel alive! I love it!!!
