So many lovely things to catch you all up on as I took some much needed time to get back on track with my own homesteading efforts and to work on the opening of our b. organic facility.
Balance, peace and purpose are the goals each day and unfortunately the online updates had to go on a bit of a hiatus while other things were being done. But spring has finally sprung and I’m thrilled about managing to work it all back in.
If you get as excited about growing your own food as I do and love to create things using nature, salvaged finds and your own two hands, I invite you to join us for 3 hours of abundant fun on Earth Day (Monday, April 22) as we begin offering an ongoing series of lifestyle workshops that promise to be the perfect blend of learning, creativity, nature and resourcefulness.
I recently met a gentleman who lives in northeast Iowa who is entirely fruit and vegetable self-sufficient all year round — amazing, right?!
It can be done and it all starts with a single plant, so our first workshop is designed to get you excited and confident about growing more edibles at home — The Art of Seed Starting is a creative, do it yourself workshop that teaches you how to start your own seeds and expand your edible gardening efforts as well as adding that creative flair.
You will plant up a tray of heirloom vegetables, herbs and edible flowers to take home as well as create a unique assortment of personalized garden markers.
The first half of the workshop will be spent on the benefits of seed starting/edible landscaping, mixing up growing mediums, selecting seeds,and planting. The second half of the workshop will delve into the creative side of gardening with unique garden marker projects you create yourself using natural elements and salvaged materials.
- Learning how to start things from seed gives you incredible power in the backyard garden.
- You will gain greater diversity with what you can grow and enjoy incredible monetary savings.
- Growing your own edibles is an essential part of living an organic lifestyle.
- You’re developing a closer connection to nature and the foods you and your family eat.
- Gardening is a healthy stress-reliever.
- To grow your own food and maintain a backyard or patio garden is unbelievably satisfying and rewarding and contributes to greater self-reliance.
All of our workshops are designed to be relaxed, hands-on, inspiring and practical.
We provide the materials, you do the planting and creating.
Cheers my friends — Join us if you can!
