- True Story of a #GardenActivist
Shared from .
To celebrate the 2000 wonderful people that are following my weird face on IG, here is a #tbt
to my first garden, my back yard garden. I moved into a new house around three years ago, saw an empty canvas of a back yard and FANTASIZED about growing food. At this point, it wasn't an OBSESSION (like it is now), but I just thought I could do something small. I read "Square Foot Gardening," started watching YouTube gardener John Kohler () and my whole life changed. I binged every bit of information I could. I read more books, watched more videos. When I finally felt ready, I built my first 4x4 bed...then another...then another....then I added a 4x10 bed and pushed everything together (then built 2 more along the fence!). I started small, kept it manageable than EXPANDED when I was ready. This whole time, I also fantasized about building a front yard garden that would make a STATEMENT and set an example to neighbors and people driving/walking by. 3 years later I still have SO MUCH to learn and create but am grateful to ALL OF YOU for posting your stuff and TEACHING me so much. Lets change the world fuckers. 😉 .
