This is the place where I share my adventures in life and living more sustainably.
I started a balcony garden a few summers ago and it was the start of a shift in how I thought about food. I realized how easy it is to grow your own in non ideal situations and what you grow can be a world apart from what you find in most grocery stores.
My project the following summer was to try to spark the same interest in the people around me. I started a mini plant nursery in my seventh floor apartment and seeded as many heirloom plants as possible. By June, I had given away hundreds of plants to friends, family, and pretty much anyone I came in contact with who had a garden or wanted to give gardening a try.
My focus now is to start to make changes in my life that will benefit me and the people around me.
