)-- Home and Garden America (HAGA), a top-selling online seed company, has observed an increase in the number of food gardeners in recent years. This renewed interest in food gardening has helped HAGA obtain more recognition on Amazon.com, where the company currently sells its premium garden seeds and plants.
"The growing number of home gardeners is definitely good news to us, but it's not just about sales. We're much happier with the fact that more people are now growing garden seeds plants at home. As a long-time advocate for organic gardening and sustainable living, it is inspiring to see change finally happen," says Chuck Harmon, Founder and CEO of Home and Garden America.
Food gardening has been gaining popularity all over the world, especially in the United States. In fact, a recent report from the National Gardening Association revealed that 35% of all households are either growing produce at home or in community gardens—that's a whopping 17% increase since 2008.
The report also discovered that food gardens are particularly popular with the younger generation. Many young adults are planting their own fruits and vegetables not just to save money but also to protect their health and help preserve the environment.
"The popularity of food gardening among the younger folks is absolutely interesting. It only proves that even younger households care about what's in their food, and would rather grow their own garden seeds plants than buy commercial products that are genetically modified and filled with dangerous pesticides. For them, growing seeds and starting a vegetable garden is the cheapest, healthiest and safest method because you never have to worry about what's creeping in your food," Harmon added.
Experts at Home and Garden America predict that this food gardening movement will continue to rise as more people learn the downsides of GMO consumption and realize the true value of homegrown produce.
