Roger Doiron, a MOTHER EARTH NEWS contributor and the founder of Kitchen Gardeners International, recently spoke at a TEDx conference about the power of gardening.

“When we encourage people to grow some of their own food, we’re encouraging them to take power into their hands — power over their diet, power over their health, and some power over their pocketbooks,” he says.

Listen to his inspirational speech by watching this video. If you don’t grow a garden, now is a great time to plan even a small one for next spring. If you do grow a garden already, now is the time to start spreading your knowledge and enthusiasm to more people. It’s time to get involved in the kitchen garden revolution!
