when Geoff Lawton said, "You can solve the problems of the world in a garden, " he was referring to questions of sustainability.

But another group here in the US is suggesting that you can actually reverse the disease process of an individual, so that sick people become healthy by eating a diet of 90% plant based foods. The ANDI score is a measure of the nutrient density of foods. If you think about this list, you will probably notice that most of these foods are likely to be found in a permaculture garden.

My favorite quote.
If you would have a mind at peace, a heart that cannot harden, go find a door that opens wide upon a lovely garden.

As time passes I find this is true. Produce at the store is in such sad shape. Im not the only one throwing out food because it goes bad before it can be used. Grow it your self, and throw any waste in the compost pile. Fresh healthy food for me, nutrients for the garden. Another world problem solved "in a garden".
