comment “Help us grow this site”?
Useful distinction, between "I grow x organic" and "X organic can be grown". The "I" as subject implies agency, which is not the sense of the word when it means "increase of its own volition or under its own power". I don't "grow" anything, since the x/organic/tomato does the growing. (Although some gardeners, given our level of soil preparation, plant coaxing, attention, and worry, might differ.) (I have to look for a thread on proper use of the virgule.)
