A garden is more than just a means of providing food, it is a model of what is possible in a community. Everyone could have a GreenzBox garden and grow healthy, nutritious organic food - thereby promoting a more sustainable way of living, encouraging a local economy via a farmers market creating an arena to discuss gardening experiences, sell their extra produce, and share the bounty.


"We can learn to imitate nature by creating a natural eco-system, symbiotic relationships that are productive, non-polluting, and beneficial to the whole environment, and thereby sustain all living things within the system."
