Garden Planner-page-001Making the choice to spend more time and energy living your life more sustainably and reconnecting with where our food comes from is an important one and something our family feels very passionate about. It’s not for everyone and there really should be no shame placed on folks that don’t but as we continue to lay concrete on every surface of our planet we must realize that at some point, there won’t be anyplace to grow our food. Sounds silly but it’s exactly what is happening, we are dangerously dependent on massive mono-crop farms to sustain our food demands but I think anyone who educates themselves on that approach will quickly realize it’s not sustainable. Just one of the many reasons you should think about taking whatever steps you can to provide alternative food sources for your family.

So, what are we doing? Well, here is our garden plan, complete with a nice little spot for the bees. There will be some tweaks to what we plant where but the overall design is complete and I’m going to start building it this week so stay tuned as we turn this 2D drawing into reality! Should be entertaining…

Location of our future garden, notice the burned ivy and grass. Invasive ivy was planted and it's hard to kill.
