¨Turn off the News and Build a Garden¨. As our ,ever so talented, friend Lukas Nelson sings in one of his songs. Thank you for the beautiful music and honestly we could not agree more.
We are thrilled to hear about how many people during the lock down have gotten down and dirty in the soil and decided to grow a garden! Having this time at home has inspired so many to connect with their backyard. I really believe that to be an amazing positive of 2020.
Composting is probably one of the most beneficial things we can do for our garden as well as the planet. We wanted to share some tips and resources with you. What we have used to make our garden flourish even more. We want to introduce you to the Bokashi Composting System. It is so important that we nourish the soil so that our plants can thrive. There is currently a beautiful documentary about this on Netflix “Kiss the Ground¨ which we also highly recommend.
Feeding our soil is one of the most important steps we can take towards a better future for our earth. It is as simple as composting the foods we are already using at home. Instead of those food rests ending up in a landfill and rotting away, you can nourish the soil right outside your house with it and give back to mother earth.
How great is that? You don’t even need to plant a garden, you can just nourish the earth right outside your house, with your waste products and feel good about doing your part towards climate change. Or you can grow a luscious garden, with fruit and vegetables you and your friends can break bread over. Or simply plant beautiful flowers and attract bees, and humming birds into your life.
We also recommend, Eden Brothers, they have a nice selection for organic seeds. I also highly recommend these awesome biodegradable starter pots, as you can just transplant them directly into the soil without harming the roots. There is even a better garden hose option, to water your garden without the toxic chemicals from you regular hose. As you can see the options are endless.
Not only is gardening relaxing. It connects you to nature and brings you to the simplicity of nurturing your own food. I truly see it as a beneficial practice for mankind. So get outside and put the good energy into the soil. Plant some seeds and reap the rewards of watching your beautiful garden grow!
I guarantee you, you will feel accomplished about doing it. We would love to hear about your gardening experiences and success stories. For more really resourceful gardening products check out our friends at Earth Easy.
