I'm going to receive my first community garden plot in about a month, and I'd love to get some tips on how to work the plot. So far I'm thinking of planting kale, lettuce, spinach. Other than that, maybe a few herbs such as green onions, rosemary, lavender, or echinacea. I will probably get a ton of zucchini and squash from my CSA so I don't really want to grow that. I'm not really thinking in terms of companion planting because of the space restrictions. I have access to plenty of compost. Should I go for other varieties, something more tall like corn or beans? Thanks!

Thanks for the tips! +Gypsy Blue I will definitely interplant for insect diversity. I figured corn would take up too much space. +Andrew Twaits I live in VT, where the winter is long and cold, so there is really only one growing season. Apparently spring only lasts about a week, so the summer is when we grow. And I'm not sure if I have the same plot each year, I'll have to check on that.

So ridiculous. And an interesting illustration of how one decision by one person who probably didn't think she was doing anything controversial gets picked up and shared around the world so quickly.

I got offered to barter childcare for raw organic milk and eggs by a farmer the other day when I was picking up milk for another family that I nanny for. Exciting offer!

“A Food Forest is a gardening technique or land management system that mimics a woodland ecosystem but substitutes in edible trees, shrubs, perennials and annuals. Fruit and nut trees are the upper level, while below are berry shrubs, edible perennials and annuals. Companions or beneficial plants are included to attract insects for natural pest management while some plants are soil amenders providing nitrogen and mulch. Together they create relationships to form a forest garden ecosystem able to produce high yields of food with less maintenance.”

— Seattle creates a ‘food forest’ in the middle of the city. (HuffPost)

I am so inspired by how we are figuring out how to bring Nature to the city!

Hey y'all, I'll be claiming my first plot in a community garden come springtime. Looking to do some permaculture gardening for my first time. Probably can't do anything too fancy, as I'm not sure how big the plot size is. Just thought I'd announce that - has anyone done permaculture in a community garden plot?

Grow up...not wide. We have a community garden group here in the city where I live. I have never seen the garden, but I hear pesticides are not allowed and most of the organisers are into Permaculture, so I imagine there is a permie influence. 
I hope you will have great success with your plot.

Full Moon Blessing

May all ecosystems to be healed and restored to its natural, sustainable bounty.

May all beings continually awaken to their true nature as Universal beings, to embrace unconditional love and unconditional peace as their true nature.

May my projects launch successfully this month. May I find financial prosperity through service to the Earth and its people. May I find a new level of spiritual awareness in life.

May my community embrace unconditional love and unconditional peace. May my community find prosperity and success in all they do.

May the world turn to embrace unconditional love and unconditional peace. May the darkness of fear, corruption, ecosystem destruction, war, famine, and injustice be transformed into the light of love, peace, community, sacred reverence for life, freedom, and equality.

Namaste

~ and so it is ~

Dear Lynn the world needs more women like you.
May you always walk in beauty as you follow the leading of the Great Spirit as he ever leads you along the path to perfection.
May your days be filled with cloudless sky's so you may enjoy the wonders of nature that the Great Spirit has spread before you.
May your nights be full of stars in the sky to bring wonders to your mind, love in your heart, and spiritual awareness to soothe your soul.
May your life be filled with joy and the abundant happiness that comes with the presence of the Great Spirit in your mind to give you comfort and lift your burdens.
May your mind be filled with gladness, your heart filled with joy, and your soul filled with peace as you walk with grace upon a path of truth, beauty, and goodness.
