Tori’s Family Food Forest
One of our favorite consulting jobs was Tori’s family food forest. They had just purchased their first home and dreamed of butterflies frolicking through gardens bursting with fresh food. There were a few mismatched shrubs in the backyard, but it was otherwise a blank canvas.
Potting Mix for Container Gardening
When you set out for the garden center to load up on supplies, it can be a little overwhelming. So many choices and sometimes, there’s limited staff to guide you as to what to choose and why. It can also get pretty expensive – fast.
If you have a lot of containers that you want to plant, you would likely save a lot of money by purchasing the ingredients to make your own potting mixes at home. You’ll save even more money if you are making a good quality homemade compost or vermicompost (worm compost).
