Square Foot Gardening (SFG) is a great way to convert that boring suburbia grass lawn into a sustainable produce isle. Don’t have a lawn? That’s cool- SFG can be done practically anywhere. Mel was kind enough to send me this DVD which gives a quick intro into SFG. This method is great for the absolute beginner who might be a little overwhelmed by starting that first organic garden.

Introducing My OpenSky Store

I’m going to start selling organic gardening supplies through a company called OpenSky. Why would I start a gardening supply store since most of the projects that I do are DIY projects? Not everyone is into making their own, and I’m cool with that. Lately people have been asking me about products and what I’d recommend. I haven’t had any recommendations because I haven’t used any products. This will enable me to be able to suggest products for those who aren’t down with building their own. Don’t worry, I’m not going to start pimping product and turning the site into an infomercial. I’ll still do my DIY projects, but will also be able to offer an alternative for those who are seeking one. Over the next few weeks, I’ll be opening up my store and adding products. If there are any products that you’ve been interested in, hit me up to let me know and I’ll see if I can get my hands on them. For more information, please visit www.UrbanOrganicGardener.com.
