It's a phrase we've heard way too much in 2020.
But what is normal?
Were the lives we were living pre-pandemic normal?
That "normal" is sky high rates of obesity, drug addiction and overdose, poverty, depression, anxiety, suicide, working jobs we don't like, spending too much time on our phones.
Is that really the normal we're rushing to go back to?
Or is there a simpler way...
Imagine a normal where our rivers and waters run clean, where our air is clear, where our is food pure, and where our communities are welcoming and united.
We can get back to this normal. And it all starts by growing our own food. Food full of flavor and nutrients, the way nature intended.
My name is Tony Kasowski and I’ve been growing food in the Phoenix area for over 10 years. There’s reward in watching people’s eyes light up when they see that first carrot come out of the ground or pick their first tomato and say “Oh my gosh Tony! I cannot believe how good this tastes!”
After growing food for ten years now, and going through (and still going through) healing journeys I can tell you without a doubt that the best way to make yourself better is by consuming well grown, and mindfully selected, fruits, veggies, nuts, herbs, flowers, and proteins. When you grow a tomato like a tomato wants to be grown and not to get it as big as it can, as quick as it can, you’re going to have a very different tomato, taste, and nutrients. Which in turn, makes for a healthier human.
My goal is to get a garden in as many places— homes, schools, churches, businesses, etc. as possible to really shift the consciousness of our food system and let people know that this is possible anywhere.
My advice to any beginner gardener is to just start.
A lot of times people are intimidated by the idea of growing vegetables, but they grow just like any other plant. Obviously, some things take more care than others, but in general it’s really pretty straightforward stuff. Keep it simple and do what you can with what you got! You can start with a five gallon bucket and work your way up, or call me and we will get you set up with your dream garden. Either way, our current food system is a joke on the population and the punchline is people being sick, the earth being poisoned, and promoting the idea of scarcity. Nature is incredibly abundant, we just need to turn off the tv, put down the phone, pick up a shovel, and make it happen!
