Organic Home Gardening Tips

Going Green means we only use organic and safe products in and on our gardens, which include our entire yard, not just our home vegetable garden.

Let’s make our world a better place for our children’s children. All you have to do is make a commitment to NEVER add harmful chemicals to your yard or garden, environmentally safe products only.

Your Choice Should Start Right Now

So you currently have those harmful chemicals so you’re thinking you might start next year. That’s not good enough. Now that you know what’s right and wrong the change needs to start today.

The previous property owners didn’t give a hoot about the environment as proved by the poisons in the garden shed so with us Going Green we have already started making our neighbourhood safer for our kids.

Don’t just toss the chemicals our as that’s not being environmentally minded. Get in touch with your local nursery and ask them how you need to dispose of them. Find the right people and let them deal with the problem safely.

We’ve Been Using A Compost Bin For Yard Waste

We found a compost bin behind our garden shed and it looked like it had never been used. Maybe they were thinking about Going Green just before they sold the property.

So we started using our yard waste to make compost we now spread around our gardens. No more big green bags of yard waste going to the landfill.

We don’t just stop at yard waste, now we also compost kitchen waste in our compost bin and we have far less going to the landfill.

We rip up newspapers and cardboard, into small pieces so they break down easier, instead of sending them to the landfill. We also use the newspaper and cardboard to cover areas we plant to start a garden bed and then we put the dirt, peat moss, and compost on top and build our garden bed.
