 Businesses are about efficiency whereas gardens like our la Food Forest are about quality. 

Industrialized food growers are looking to turn over as many tomatoes as possible as quickly as possible. Get them up, get them picked, ship them out.

Home growers are looking to produce the tastiest possible produce, and that means being patient, sometimes waiting an extra week or three to pick it or giving the soil a chance to rest and recuperate between plantings.

Industrialized soil doesn’t give us the same vitamin and mineral content, and our taste buds can tell the difference.

fertilizers provide the things that fruits and vegetables need to get large, but not necessarily healthy.
