Growing a Regenerative Climate Victory Garden
It’s more important than ever to supply ourselves and our families with healthy food. The wonderful news is we can do this while at the same time contributing to healing the earth. How we tend and grow our soil is key to growing nutrient dense food and to sequestering carbon in the ground. Good healthy soil equates to good nutritious food which nourishes people and the planet.
Gardening is also a wonderful way to restore your emotional balance and reduce stress. Studies show gardening is one of the best activities for our physical and mental well being and it's fun to do with your children and grandchildren. There is nothing like watching a garden grow and tasting your first juicy warm cherry tomato right off the vine.
One of the major obstacles to growing a garden is often the task of simply getting started. I love helping people of all ages bring their desire to grow a garden into a reality. I will listen to what it is that you want and what you have the time and resources to do so together we can create a garden plan that works for you.
In my practice I focus on permaculture design principles, organic regenerative soil amendments, and using native plants to support pollinators and increase the diversity of our local ecosystem.
During our sessions I will give you the hands-on tools and information you need to grow delicious and nutritious food in your backyard while building the soil. You will be joining a growing movement of regenerative climate victory growers across the world.
I have been an organic gardener for over 25 years, earning my certification in permaculture design through Sowing Solutions: Permaculture Design and Ecological Gardening, and completing my training as a Soil Advocate with Kiss the Ground. I am an avid grower, experienced educator, impassioned cook, and budding nutritionist who loves a delicious home cooked meal made from fresh produce from the garden.
