“Gardening as a family becomes a place where no one is an expert. Instead, everyone teaches each other, enjoys each other, and works side by side together. Gardening is not only a place to grow vegetables, but it’s also a place to grow closer as a family.” – Jen Haugen’s mom

“Moms are craving simplicity and balance and I believe a family vegetable garden can not only grow healthy food that nourishes our families, but it can also nourish our souls. I learned this while I was a supermarket dietitian with an overloaded schedule and realized I needed to go back to my roots to achieve balance again with my family.” – Jen Haugen
