If you are at all like me, you are eagerly awaiting being able to cast off the white wintery veil for the rainbow-hued blanket of spring growth. About this time of year, I start to really plan what I want in my garden. Whether you are planning a personal, community, or education based garden, the thrill of new life and fresh vegetables sprouting should leave you in shivers (no pun intended).
Here is a program that is worth its weight in humus. Smart Gardener is an online program that helps you decide what plants are right for you, create a personalized garden plan, give you weekly tasks and reminders, and a journal to track your thoughts and progress. Now that is a LifeHack that will save you lots of time. Oh, did I mention the membership is free? Bonus!
Now find a young person or student, and get them involved in developing a garden. Teaching the young a greener way is the best way to a greener future!
