Carla and Kelly Groggs turned their love of gardening and landscaping into one of the most dynamic family businesses in the Midwest: Groggs Green Barn. Unlike those box store chains that sell mostly hardware and a few plants, Groggs Green Barn is the only place to buy organic soil in the entire state of Oklahoma. Groggs is also self-sustainable, with energy-efficient lighting, rainwater collection, on-premises beehives and chickens, a restaurant, and offers community outreach of (mostly free) classes to anyone who'd like to find out more about topics like composting, organic soils, and hydroponics. Why should you consider organic gardening? Because it's less expensive, takes less work, and tastes better than growing your garden with pesticides. Bonus: you reduce your cancer exposure, too! Do you live in an apartment? No prob. Carla tells you how to grow your own indoor garden.
