Welcome! Whether you're new to vegetable gardening or have
been slurping homegrown tomatoes for years, you'll find how-to's and solutions here.
Growing a vegetable garden is one of the most empowering and rewarding things we can do, especially in these challenging times...
You're in the right place if you:
What you'll find here is not the latest trend or method, but the brilliant, balanced, sustainable way that nature has always gardened. How soil microbes, worms and other soil life, plants, and people can best work together to grow the most nutritious food possible - the quality food that nature intended for you to eat - but which has now become as rare and precious as gold.
Here is the "secret" - which has never been a secret - just an abandoned truth:
An ecosystem functions like a giant family, and growing a vegetable garden that is sustainable and delivers high nutrition requires cooperation with family members we didn't realize we had. (I'm afraid it's we humans who have been the dysfunctional members of this family! But no more...) There's a lot to know to create a sustainable, vibrant, nutrient-dense vegetable garden.
As ecological gardeners we nurture the soil life, plants and pollinators, and they nurture us back as part of the cycle of life. We provide what they need through our knowledge, experience and love.
I will provide the knowledge and inspiration.
You provide the love.
