The author believes that health and nature are two things that are greatly ignored in today's world. Herb gardening is an effective way to get in touch with both. The miraculous healing powers of herbs are well known and home gardeners can create their own powerful medicines with herbs picked from their own backyard. Similarly herbs have been widely used in foods and drinks, even desserts and breads. Imagine baking your own herbal bread or simply creating a sumptuous pesto sauce! Herb gardening allows one the freedom to do all this and more.
