Numerous reasons…For many young professionals the idea of starting a garden may seem daunting. Ever spent hours googling immaculate gardens only to find yourself feeling overwhelmed? Did you think, “I don’t have time for that” or possibly “that must be so expensive” or even the tried and true “maybe when I retire”?? You’re not alone. As a young professional who spends her time fighting the hustle and bustle of the rat race we call corporate America, I’m often asked by my colleagues how I find time to garden. I bring in buckets (literally) full of fresh vegetables to share with my peers and always hear the same comment, “I would love to but I wouldn’t even know where to start!” That is why I have started this blog. I am going to share my experiences with fellow young gardeners. The good, the bad, the bugs and the blight. All of it, in hopes that I am able to provide guidance to those in need. Yes, you read that right — YOUNG gardeners — you don’t have to be eligible for a senior discount to enjoy the endless benefits of gardening!! Think of it this way, if millennials aren’t exercising their green thumbs then neither are their children. The idea of gardening, whether as a hobby or a lifestyle, being lost between generations is a terrifying one. There are too many life lessons associated with gardening that need to be shared with the next generation, one that already struggles with an unhealthy attachment to the digital world. They are why I have started this blog. My goal is to help millennials navigate intimidating waters so that they can share this invaluable gift with their children. I have gardened in four states, each of which has proven to bear it’s own challenges, and learned a great deal along the way. That being said, I am by no means a master and I am hoping to learn just as much from this blogging experience as you do! Cheers, friends!!
