    You Don't Have to Learn the Hard Way...

    When I started my first organic garden in 1985, I made a bunch of mistakes. I wasted money on tools that didn't work, made compost that smelled so bad the neighbors complained, and grew corn with empty ears. I harvested zucchinis the size of small cars (not a good thing). I tilled until the soil was fluffy - but the worms and soil ecosystem were pretty well dead. I've learned a lot in the last 3 years, from experience and from studying cutting-edge organic agriculture. I started this site to share what I've learned, so you can learn from my mistakes.

    Organic gardening grew into the passion of my life, and I majored in botany in college, which eventually led to my teaching the organic horticulture program at Naropa University. Now I run this site to provide all the information you need in one place - so that you can spend more time outside in the garden, and less time searching the web.
