    Consider this…

    Modern agriculture and horticulture are controlled by economic forces, including industry and governments, that seek to produce food and plants at the lowest possible costs with little regard for consumers' long term health and wellness.

    As a result, the food we eat… the water we drink… the lawns and landscapes we enjoy… have all lost much of their natural nutrition and life sustaining forces.

    Moreover, the artificial pesticides, insecticides and herbicides used everywhere from farms and nurseries to our front yards and back yards carry with them serious health consequences for everyone.

    Food preservative chemicals and processes carry a different set of known health risks.

    In many ways, we've lost our connections to food, the land and nature.

    At Progressive Gardens, we recognize that people understand the necessity for change. .. that the way we have done things in the past now no longer serves us.
