Leafy greens are one of the integral keys to unlocking our health. Our ancestors ate up to 200 different species of plants in a year. These days we are not so lucky to have access to that many plants. There are so many wonderful leafy greens that people don’t know about because all the grocery stores typically have a few types of lettuce and some spinach. When you let the store buyer select your vegetables for you, you are going to miss out on some wonderful foods. Just like tomatoes (I know of over 3800 varieties) the mass production of food has led us to growers that are only growing a few varieties of leafy greens. This is a curse and a blessing at the same time. If the stores will not carry the amazing plethora of leafy greens, you will have to grow them yourself. What a blessing to get to grow your own nutrient dense, organic, amazing greens.
When you grow your own leafy greens not only are you in control of your vitamin and mineral intake, you are also saving lots of money, learning a life skill and having fun. Does it get any better than this? Yes it does! The joy of the flavors you will create and the new varieties you will add to your diet will transform your life. You can harvest your greens at their peak and eat them within minutes of the harvest. Once you know how to grow an amazing assortment of leafy greens you can teach these skills to your friends and family. Now they too can have health and vitality and life skills that can be passed on to the next generation. This passing on of life skills allows your loved ones to enjoy true wellbeing. Yes, this is as good as it gets! Believe me, when you can grow your own food and actually create something with your own hands that affects your health and your finances, you will feel the power!
Now I can hear you grumbling under your breath, “Yeah, this all sound great, but I don’t know how to garden and the last time I tried it was too hard and nothing grew.” I hear this all the time and there is hope.
This is where I come into your story. Over the last 28 years I have been developing high performance gardening systems that fit into our modern lifestyle. There is no reason to have the garden take over your life or cause you pain and hardship. I created these systems to help me run my farm. I grow 20,000 sq. ft. of organic vegetables and I needed an easy and organic way to grow food. I knew that the old row style of gardening was not going to cut it for my farm or for people with busy schedules.
My farm is known for its organic produce, especially for its leafy greens. As they are my specialty to grow, I wanted to equip anyone with the skills to be able to grow a wide variety of produce no matter their space or time constraints. I am teaching my leafy greens high performance gardening techniques in the Leafy Greens Gardening Course. All the organic, nutrient dense food you need can be grown in an easy, fun and productive garden. With 5 minutes a day, you can grow the 3 cups of greens that are vital to your health as recommended by Dr. Wahls.
The Leafy Greens Container Garden Course is an online video course that includes a 3 part Leafy Greens Basics series where we will develop your garden. You will be guided from planning to planting your garden in each of these episodes. My favorite way to teach gardening is to do it right beside you, so, for the next 20 weeks of growing you will get a weekly episode tracking the progress of our gardens, showing how to boost the nutrient density of our leafy greens and how to grow the incredible variety of leafy greens. Having the course online gives you the opportunity to learn at your pace on your own time, watching the videos as often as you like.
In a recent interview with Dr. Wahls she mentioned that the answer to ending the health crisis of our time begins in the home kitchen and in the garden. Planting your Leafy Greens Container Garden enables you to start on the path to health today, harvesting within a matter of weeks.
