A seed is hope. Put a dry brown kernel in a spoonful of soil with a drop of water, a ray of light and whatever time it takes, and you're giving life to hope.
That's the real reason people are gardeners.
Every seed we sow, every plant we plant affirms our future. Hope of food for the table or medicine for health or shelter for wildlife or beauty for the mind.
