There is something special about making a meal and being able to say,”I grew it myself!”
Watching a seed grow into a mature plant is rewarding. Cooking with homegrown, fresh picked vegetables is good for your soul as well as your body. Enjoying the fruits of your labor is what gardening is all about.
The same is true about dreams.
American Family Insurance realizes that dreams like gardens need to be nurtured and protected. They believe in the power of dreams and the importance healthy eating habits play in helping you reach your goals.
