DerVaes Gardens.com – Fresh from our garden to your table

If we do not live where we work, and when we work, we are wasting our lives and our work too. ~ Wendell Berry ~

    The new site looks beautiful!
    You guys are really manifesting paths of exchange lately, with the Peddler’s wagon and now this one. It makes perfect sense, and I hope both sites are wildly successful.
