Bael tree April of this year, the weather is most hottest with unusual heat waves. We decided to grow more perennial trees with edible fruits and seriously changing the concrete fences to green walls to reduce hot temperatures for long terms. #sustainablegardening…

Caniaba resident Peter saves water by diverting his roof run-off to a 2000 litre catch tank. He’s also installed a 10,000 litre tank at the top end of his garden and connected the two by a solar powered submersible pump. The pump is powered from two 80 watt panels on his garden shed roof. A standby mains pump is installed on a separate float switch, should overcast weather prevent the solar pump from working. Taps are close-by to water Peter’s gardens from this rainwater supply. Peter is now considering a further tank for the dry summer weather as his garden needs about 1500 litres of water a week, and less than 1000 litres a week in winter. He has enough water for his garden for the next two months, even without any rainfall. Peter’s innovative tank system for garden watering saves water outdoors and money on his water and electricity bills. How do you save water outdoors? Enter the 160 Litre Challenge competition and WIN a water efficient dishwasher or washing machine. You need to be a resident in the Northern Rivers but you DON’T need to be on town water to enter.

Powdery Mildew arrived on my table grapes. I’ll be using an organic spray to try and tackle this issue. The vines are growing great and I’ll trim them back a bit to open them up a little for good air circulation. These are Thompson Seedless and Red Flame Seedless. They are prone to powdery mildew. Such is life. What do you use to protect against powdery mildew on your grapes? #groworganicgrapes #growtablegrapes #groworganic #sustainablegardening #growyourownfood #lovetogarden #growwhatyoueat #tablegrapes #alamedacountymastergardeners

This past Earth Day weekend we had the pleasure of working in Avalon, New Jersey on a dune restoration project!! For this dune restoration project we cleared invasive plant species, such as Privet and Japanese honey suckle, away from already present beach plum, bayberry, viburnum dentatum, yarrow and seaside goldenrod. All of theses are fantastic native plants which provide stabilization for the dunes via root structure and foliage. Dunes are highly sensitive ecosystems, made into berms and swales by the wind and the ocean. They are constantly subject to change, but, thanks to certain plant species, they are able to sustain. Each plant offers a highly specialized attribute to these dunes, which provides either shelter, food, or habitat for many different mammals, insects, reptiles, amphibians, and birds. Coastal Dunes also play an important part in protecting the coastline from hurricanes and tropical storms. While living on the upper end of the East Coast we are not plagued with as many hurricanes, it is important to remember that they are a possibility and to be ready for them when they come! A successful dune ecosystem will be able to offer protection to the many beach homes which line the dunes. With the understanding that climate change is causing sea water levels to rise, we will be relying on these dunes more and more for protection against storm damage. And finally, Always remember to stay off the dunes! They’re absolutely beautiful, and we understand the desire to explore them, however many dune plants are totally intolerant to soil compaction from foot or vehicular traffic. Aka: walking in the dunes could kill the plants. If that isn’t enough of a deterrent, there’s often a lot of poison ivy in there anyways, so you might as well stay outta there for that reason too. 😉 Thanks for reading!

This was part of the eco series I drew 12 years ago & just caught my eye this afternoon...having just buried 3 big compost piles in the new garden beds and still sorta wishing I had more 😉🌱🥗🍌 the good news is that it seems like everything we do just makes more scraps and clippings, keeping the worms busy...I’m so looking forward to the rewards this summer: hoping to see gobs of tomatoes, squashes, and the usual cast of characters.

Bumble bee x Aquilegia @ntgardencentre . Caught one of our busy bumble bees foraging nectar from the long spurs of an Aquilegia. Amazing to be able to see it's tongue working through the flower in the sunshine! The length of the tongue determines which flowers a bee can forage from so we're lucky to have quite a few different bee species in the park and in our local hives.

Purple hyacinth bean is a fast growing and vigorous grower and often produces interesting flowers and tasty pods. Immature, tender pods can be cooked (steam or stir-fry) and they tasted very much like green beans. They are also used in stews and curries. The matured beans themselves are edible, but toxic if eaten raw. Always cook the beans thoroughly before eating them.☘️🌿🍀🍃☘️🌿🍀🍃 . . . #gardeningaustralia #permaculturegarden #urbanpermaculture #hyacinthbean #organicallygrown #lablabbeans #homegrownveggies #brisbanegardens #ediblegarden #ediblelandscaping #kitchengarden #urbangardening #growfoodnotlawns #growyourfood #blissful_aficionada #australiangarden #sustainablegardening #sustainablegarden #foodforest

Как изменить отношение классических дачников к "бурьянам"? Мне повезло: нашелся кусочек земли, где можно было садить дикие растения местной флоры. И первой реакцией с соседнего дачного участка было "только кустов нам тут не надо, от них тень!". Через 2 года я услышала "а у вас уже что-то вырисовывается". Этой весной "а вот вы эту траву садите, а я ее как сорняк выкапываю, почему?". А сегодня я консультировала на предмет, что злаки - это не только вредно, но и полезно, и та же самая соседка по участку уже пересаживает их с грядки на межгрядковые тропинки. #plantingwild #scienceingardening #nativeflora #planting #plant #flora #plantcommunity #vegetation #naturalisticplanting #grass #garden #gardening #sustainable #sustainablegardening #soil #roots

🌸 dirt therapy this morning 🌸🌱 🌷I can’t really explain what I love so much about gardening....part if it is fresh air and sunshine, part if it is the effort of planting something, caring for it, and helping it develop and grow 🌱 into its full potential (without the pressure of say a pet or a child 😂), and part of it really is the physical exertion—the feel of the dirt on your hands, the feeling your muscles get from doing the work, it’s all wonderfully and gloriously therapeutic and truly grounding (pun intended 🥁) My yard is a living canvas, I put a lot of effort into it with researching what will grow in my area in #southeastcolorado and many things I plant do not survive. It’s all part of the process! Discovering my passion in my yard has truly been soul-enriching, and has made spring my absolute favorite time of year 🌷🌱 💚 If you made it this far (thanks for reading 😉) my new babies from High Country Gardens are: catmint (pictured next to a mature plant that is 3+ years old), bee balm, and iron weed. All three are shades of purple 💜 Topping off with current blooms of #blueflax and #sandcherry
Some green inspo from @pinterest 🤩🥬🍅 This is heaven, right? I don’t have a kitchen garden, but this (or maybe a little smaller 😜) is definitely a goal!!! Do you have a kitchen garden? What did you plant? ☺️🥕🍅#greengarden#kitchengarden#growyourownvegetables#freshfoods#plantfood#plantyourownfood#sustainablegardening#outdoorhappiness#countrysidelife#sunnyvibes

Progress was made yesterday on the garden. Swipe to see what we planted in the pallet garden side and note that I should have planted the bok choy in a bigger space. But the first pic will house corn, peas or beans, and giant pumpkins. Currently, it houses our two golden raspberry plants. And that rock border? Entirely done by Chica! I only asked her to do it and told her where to get the rocks. After also asking that they be on the grass edge and not the dirt she was off. It looks gorgeous and had her asleep quite quickly last night. ;) #sustainablegardening #palletgardening #threesisters #goldenraspberry #sheetmulch #reusegarden #ediblegarden #microfarm #urbanfarm #earthday #foodnotlawns #lawnconversion #microhomestead #growyourfood #kidsinthegarden #fandomfarm

Although I’m horrible at remembering to plant them in time, my overwintered geraniums are blooming! In the fall I dug my geraniums out, shook off the soil and put them in a large yard waste paper bag in a cool + dark spot. In early spring I pulled them out, soaked them for a day or two and then potted them. I’m still waiting for growth on a few of them but others are looking great already. For full disclosure: I would describe myself as an amateur gardener so I think I’m missing a few steps involving hydrating monthly over the winter but if you’re lazy like me, this seems to work too. #lowwaste #zerowasteliving #geraniums #sustainablegardening #overwinter #homegarden #growityourself

@graduategardeners were award winners in the category Domestic Garden Construction Under £30K at the #BALIAwards2018 with their scheme ‘ Private Residence in Cheltenham’. The owners wanted to reform a derelict swimming pool into a useable garden space – this terrific scheme used waste rubble to infill the void and created a rill that cascades into a smaller pond situated in a sunken seated area. Excellence use of waste materials and perfect for creating a new eco system for water loving insects and animals!

One of Ashwagandha’s most prized benefits is its positive effects on stress, anxiety and mood. Multiple studies have shown that taking a high-potency extract of Ashwagandha for five days produced anxiety-relieving effects improves communication between nerve cells and stimulates the body to heal nervous system damage shown to reduce the effects that stress has on the brain by up to 80% or more, making it a key herb for anyone who feels burnout or lives and works in a high-stress environment. In fact, has also been shown to reduce cortisol levels, a key stress-related hormone, by 26% on average.”” #instafashion #instagood #instamusic #instaearth _______________________________ #gardening #abundancemindset #truelifestory #growingfood #sustainablegardening #growyourfood #organicveggies #gardeningfoodies #sustainableliving #sustainablelifestyle #lovefood #instyle #gratitudejournal #sustainablefashion #fashionart #artphotography #lovelivinglife #backyardveggies #organicgrowing #sydneyurbanjungle #permaculturegarden #permaculturelife #urbanpermaculture #indianfood

🌿SUSTAINABLE GARDENING🌿 So yesterday was Earth Day, but I’d argue that the planet should have more than one day a year. Loads of people on here suggesting accessible, inspiring ways of being more green, but seeing as it’s mostly plants here, I figured I’d share some tips on how to grow things in a way that’s kinder to the world around us: 1. Peat free compost. I use New Horizon because it’s the most accessible in London garden centres. But I gather Lidl and other supermarkets are offering it too. Peat bogs don’t need raiding for our plants. 2. Re-use your pots. Black plastic isn’t recyclable, and until we can change plant suppliers’ minds on that we’ve got to re-use them. Pot on seedlings, put them in your garden, but don’t just throw them away. 3. Grow from seed in leftover fruit and veg punnets (they come with drainage holes!) 4. Don’t use chemicals. Aphids are annoying but there are plenty of organic pest-control methods that don’t decimate our insect population. Soap spray is worth a try, and increasingly I’m just leaving them be - they’re food for the ladybirds and the birds. 5. On that note: think of bee-friendly plants when planning what to grow. Who doesn’t want bees in their garden? Furry frens! 6. Try and save rainwater: really difficult in a small urban gardening space but there are some ingenious options if you look into it. If you’re blessed with a garden, get a water butt. Your plants will thank you, too. 7. Get into composting - because there’s got to be a better way than both taking out your food waste *and* buying compost. Again, challenging in a small space but look for local community gardens or composting collaboratives that will take your food waste. My old housing estate used to have one and it was the best. 8. Try and get your tools and pots second-hand: car-boot sales and Facebook marketplace often have them (and so cheaply!) 9. Plant-swap! Got too much of something? See if another gardening pal wants it - and you might get something fun back. 10. Grow your own food. Doesn’t have to be everything - I just do herbs, because of my shady little plot. But even that means less plastic to landfill and far more delicious dinners.

Apples need bees. It’s a fact. No bees = no apples. Studies have shown that more bees visiting the blossom results in better fruit set. Honeybees from managed hives along with wild bees - bumblebees and solitary bees, all do their bit in helping ensure a good apple harvest. And we can help maintain healthy bee populations by planting lots and lots of plants that produce nectar-rich flowers from early spring right through to early winter... because bees need food all through the season, not just at apple blossom time. This year I’m adding more herbs and annuals to the garden, trying to provide a feast of pollen and nectar for the bees, and a feast of colour and scent for us to enjoy.

Earth Day… When I think of what needs to be done, should be done, by me, by others to truly step up and care for the Earth in the way she deserves, it’s a bit overwhelming. 🌏 When I think of my impact, the waste I leave, the air I pollute, the food system I support, it is easy to get sucked into despair. 🌏 I’ve spent quite some time dwelling in that anguish and feeling so powerless. Searching for the answers that aren’t really there. Even if I had all the solutions, I would still be just this tiny little voice, in a sea of chaos and hunger, endless consumption, and cries for bigger, better, and more. 🌏 I have learned to let go of the things I cannot change. Although it still gets to me sometimes, I realize that despair, guilt and helplessness certainly aren’t the answer, and they will never be the powerful catalyst for change that needs to happen. Inspiration, education, and deep moments of connection are far more trans-formative and that is the direction I am aiming for. 🌏 It is so painful to see what we are doing to our home, but there is also hope, as I do see people beginning to awaken, to have awareness, and to find ways to change. 🌏 Will it be enough? Perhaps not, but we have to try. 🌏 For the creatures, the trees, and the children, we have to try… 🌏 The great Earth has given us everything. Everything. 🌏 Bless her, nourish her, do not take more than you need. Fill her gardens, keep her clean. Give, do not just take. Happy Earth Day…. #earthday #earth #carefortheearth #sustainable #sustainableliving #healtheearth #herbs #herbalplants #herbalmedicine #healingplants #herbalhealing #holistichealing #holistic #healing #sustainablegardening #sustainablemedicine #herbalist #herbalists #growyourown #mothernature #earthmedicine #descendantbotanicals #healingspiral

Keep our planet strong and the adventures long 🌍 ... lately I have been striving to do better for the planet including metal straws, bringing my own to go boxes and using reusable mugs and bottles. I have also started a garden to sustain my boyfriend and I. However, these tasks are not for everyone and don’t work all the time and I understand.. maybe your running late to a workout you grab a plastic cup or bottle. ... But even if you remember once or you choose the sustainable option sometimes, that’s better then nothing! The fact that you are conscious about the problem is a huge step in the right direction. Keep up the good work everyone, one small change for the better at a time! ... ... ... photo layout idea: @demetria.dresser post. #earthday #earthhour #sustainability #sustainableliving #gardening #sustainablegardening #betterplanet #betterperson #ecofriendly #ecoliving #savethebees #naturephotography

🌎 Can't think of a better way to celebrate #EarthDay than involving children in your #SustainableGardening routine 🌱. 👩‍🌾 Usually, their involvement includes only eating our #AeroponicVeggies 😋 (sometimes right off the vines without asking 🙄), planting the seeds, occasional plant tickling & 🐞 release for natural pest control. What are the ways you keep your kids busy in the garden? 🏡🌻🌾🍓🥒 #TeachThemYoung #younghelper #littlegardener #daddysgirl #daddyshelper #fatheranddaughter #sustainability #MMADveggies #mindfulmoments #gardeningtogether #gardeningmadeeasy #eatyourgreens #urbanfarmers #eatwhatyougrow #ourtowergardens #gardeningwithchildren #meanwhileinyelm

We are gearing up for lots of visitors to our open garden this weekend (27 & 28/4). There will be guided tours on both days (at 11am and 2pm ) of the established, twenty year old native food garden. It is a great time of year to visit the farm with finger limes ripening and the layered garden flourishing with over 30 species from groundcover to canopy. As always at the Ridge, food will feature prominently with lunch, morning and afternoon tea available-all showcasing the fantastic flavours from the farm. The nursery will be open and we will be glad to answer your questions about cooking and growing native food plants. You can book the tours online at www.peppermintridgefarm.com.au. #melbournefoodie #melbournefarmersmarkets #sustainablegardening #sustainablekitchen #gippslandfood #destinationgippsland #nativefoods #bushfoods #australianbushfood #australiannativefood
Happy 🌎 Day Everyone! Here’s my regularly given gift 🎁 to Mother Earth & now to you: my edge-of-the-garden compost, using Earth’s own decomposer & deodorizer: maple 🍁 leaves! As seen in photo 4. #earthday #compost #composting #gardens #organic #sustainability…
Mark your calendars. Plant some seeds. Take some cuttings. Divide a plant. Time for a plant swap. Hash tag #jcplantswap #jcgreenwave @cancopark 
See you May 4 @square1jc
My awesome girlfriend is helping me with preparation of #nodiggarden. She is watering the lower layers to make better environment for the decomposing and also if the layers are wet, they don’t get blown that easily when the wind is stronger 💨 . . . . . .…
