When you aren’t growing your own food, there seems to be a bit of mystery surrounding the topic. This was the case for me, prior to the past couple years. I was raised in a conventional home in the mid-west (west suburbs of Chicago) and we ate corn, green beans and peas out of a can. I was never told or shown where those foods came from and it irritates me so much, like I was left in the dark on one of the most empowering practices we can experience. I am now making up for lost time and take my gardening time and space to the next level in every way possible.
It was just over a year ago, in June 2011, that Christian Bates and I built our most fantastic, mineralized, abundant garden and this harvest season, its yield is off the charts! These 3 videos demonstrate the process of going from heirloom garden to a superfood-infused green vegetable salad.

Now, set your intention to begin a new organic garden or to expand what you’ve already started. Success in anything is initiated by making the choice to do something, taking action, and following through. You can do it, too!
