In The Garden

At VegeFuture, out focus is on growing food. This is not to cast any aspersion on the pursuit of ornamental gardening. Any sustainable cultivation is a noble endeavor – restoring soil, plant & fungal diversity, animal habitat and human quality of life. Growing food simply adds another dimension that we find irresistible.

When we grow our own food, we renew our connection with the living environment.

Over time, we develop patience and accept the limits of our influence.
