0
0
Here are nine easy tips for growing more food in a small garden:

1) Grow in Beds, not Rows
2) Optimize Spacing between Beds and Plants
3) Grow Vertically
4) Succession Planting
5) Interplanting
6) Grow in the Shade
7) Grow Edible Plants in the Front Yard
8) Grow Microgreens
9) Grow in Pots & Containers

Ideas from viewers

1) Interplant sweet peas with sunchokes. The sweet peas fix nitrogen, the sunchokes act as trellises for the peas, and both attract beneficial insects.
2) 3 sisters garden
3) Grow dwarf trees and plant shade tolerant crops underneath
4) Grow in window boxes
5) Optimize use of space by growing food you like the most

One Yard Revolution is all about growing a lot of food on a little land using sustainable organic methods, while keeping costs and labor at a minimum. Emphasis is placed on improving soil quality with compost, mulch, and compost tea. No store-bought fertilizers, soil amendments, pesticides, compost activators, etc. are used.

How to Make a Garden - Organic Growing Plants - As we imagine organic gardening and permaculture we regularly point out photos of bearded warriors wearing overalls who dedicate their lives to working long days of their vegetable plots. Whilst this can be a great way to enjoy life, it doesn’t suit the conventional suburbanite having a full-time job and also a hefty mortgage.

It's well-known just how much effort there may be in how to make a garden- digging, weeding, and crop rotation, watering, fertilizing, planting winter crops, and resting beds, spraying pests and weeds - some other great tales and many others. So visualize a vegetable garden that didn’t need all of these elements. Imagine your garden that did not have pests, never needed digging, didn’t need to be rested during winter, didn't have any need for crop rotation, had almost no weeds, needed minimal water and virtually cared for itself. But to top everything off, this garden produces frequently greater than a traditional vegetable garden and regenerates itself every year, simply by itself.

Absolutely, that may be magic!

How could a vegetable garden like that can be obtained? Easily! The facts are by nature. Natural ecosystems are really healthy as well as other and don’t require any human interference. If you possibly can make same natural laws which are seen in nature and apply these to our garden, we could reproduce similar results. And that’s what the Food4Wealth method has been doing is.

The Food4Wealth technique is according to science with easiest vegetables to grow. It follows very sound ecological principles. It’s an approach to starting a natural ecosystem using edible plants, and it also uses the kinds of plants no doubt you like to eat.

The special planting arrangement mimics nature therefore the same interdependent relationships involving the living components exist. These relationships are mutually great for the various components; therefore the vegetable garden really runs simply by itself.

Doctor Sells His Practice in New York, Buys Organic Farm & Treating Holistically
0
0
Deaths from correctly taken prescription drugs number above 100,000 every year, which is just one of the main reasons why the popularity of natural medicine has surged lately.

But even as Americans’ attitudes about medicine have begun to change and realign with the classic Hippocrates mantra of “First, Do No Harm…” our doctors haven’t quite gotten the message.

The classic “pills, surgery and vaccines” method that most doctors utilize first and foremost hasn’t changed a whole lot, but some individual doctors have adjusted and begun putting more stock in natural methods again.

One particular doctor on the east coast has done the previously unthinkable: he’s spending less time in his New York office and more time reconnecting with the roots of what it means to be healthy.

Demand for Non-GMO Products Hits the Seed Industry - GET READY FOR YOUR SPRING GARDEN NOW!

The Non-GMO Project label is increasingly appearing on food products in the U.S. and now seed companies are starting to display the butterfly label. A few seed companies, seeing the growing demand for non-GMO products, are getting seed varieties Non-GMO Project verified though the numbers remain small compared with the number of non-GMO verified food companies.

“As demand for non-GMO choices continues to rise, farmers are seeking more non-GMO seed,” Megan Westgate, executive director of the Non-GMO Project, said. “Similarly, smaller farms and home gardeners are choosing to plant more organic and non-GMO varieties.”

Say NO To GMO Seeds! Live In The Garden Of Eden With Food Grown From Organic Heirloom
0
0
Instead of nurturing humanity through education, healthy eating, natural medicine and planting ancient organic heirloom fruits and vegetables, the Evil Empire of Monsanto and the various committees of the current American administration seem committed to their GMO agenda of taking over the farming and agricultural industries world-wide. Wrecking havoc one plant at a time, it is now known that 90 to 95 percent of the world’s heirloom seeds are now extinct; and, what’s left are bioengineered plants responsible for promoting deadly diseases; famines due to non-sustainability; altered genetics in plants, animals and humans, and decimated agricultural economies around the globe.

In a devious act of betrayal towards humanity, the Monsanto Protection Act was signed into being, creating a monster intended to destroy heirloom seeds, heritage livestock and to threaten global human survival. GM seeds have had their DNA altered and their resulting vegetables can alter human DNA and RNA.

Fortunately, that’s not all that’s happening in the plant kingdom

In a movement to prevent the total decimation of ancient grains and heirloom varieties of fruits, vegetables and flowers, seed banks are sprouting around the globe, storing the wealth of thousands of varieties of heirloom seeds still in existence. Strong resistance abounds from home gardeners to large sustainable and environmentally responsible corporations who grow heirloom plants for both consumption and seed saving in an effort to prevent starvation now and for future generations. Organic heirloom seeds provide diversity in size, color, shape and nutrition. Numerous varieties and strains of plants are specifically responsive to local climate and growing conditions, making them resistant to changes in weather, pests and other environmental conditions; and best of all, heirloom vegetables and fruits support life and just taste better.

The first known seed bank was started in Russia in the early 20th century, and today there are over 1,400 seed banks around the world storing heirloom seeds. In 1975 Diane Ott Whealy was inspired to set up her 890-acre seed bank called Heritage Farm near Decorah, Iowa, where they not only grow and collect heirloom seeds, but house the non-government-owned Seed Savers Exchange. The Exchange publishes a yearly catalog chock-a-clock full of thousands of available heirloom seed varieties.

Join the resistance, plant organic heirloom seeds

Now more than ever, the destruction of the honey bee thanks to Monsanto, has made saving and planting heirloom seeds more critical for our health and future. If the honey bee population ends up being completely destroyed, we will have to find new ways to pollinate seeds; and it will be important to have seeds that will actually germinate properly — unlike GMO seeds. If you’re not afraid yet after knowing what you do about Monsanto and the Evil Empire of GMOs, you should be. However, you can also join the resistance and start filling your gardens, decks and window boxes with exquisite heirloom fruits, vegetables and flowers.

There are a few things to check out before buying seeds. Ask whatever seed company you buy from if they’ve taken the Safe Seed Pledge, assuring their seeds are GM-free and organic. Also, be aware that Monsanto has (sadly) purchased some of the organic, heirloom seed companies. Check below for links to lists of seed companies that sell genuine organic heirloom seeds and those owned or controlled by Monsanto. Add your own suggestions to the comments section below.

Organic heirloom seeds with No GMOs are safe to buy from these sources

Arizona man, 110 years-old, credits long life and health to 5 foods

"Eat properly and get your rest," recommends Bernando LaPallo. Words to live by considering the Mesa resident was born in Brazil in 1901 and has lived to be 110 years old. "They had no automobiles, no airplanes I saw them all come about," remembered LaPallo. LaPallo claims he's never been sick a day in his life. He walks every morning and eats mostly organic fruits and veggies. "People ask me what do you do to stay so young," LaPallo explained. "I say, 'Well you've heard the old saying, you are what you eat.'"

So what's LaPallo's secret? Five foods: garlic, honey, cinnamon, chocolate and olive oil. "Use olive oil on your skin," LaPallo said. "Rub your feet rub your arms you'll never rust." Healthy habits LaPallo picked up from his father, a doctor, who lived to be 98.
