We aim to enrich your knowledge of gardening, encouraging a clearer understanding of the earths elements, assisting you to operate in alignment and tune in to earths cycles.

The calendar will feature one garden project per month, so I am searching for 12 projects worth sharing. Do you know of any organic garden establishments? Let me know about them, to be included in the directory. Any content or advice you want to share, this is the place! Contact me directly, asap.
