Small Space Gardens

Because of space limitations, this summer was the first time in many years that I did not have a garden.  One of my favorite things to do in past summers was to walk out into the garden and pick a handful of herbs to brighten my plant-based dishes.  I decided to create a “small-space garden” on our front porch steps and planted rosemary, basil, thyme and mint in pots.  They turned out to be a decorative, productive and attractive addition to our front porch.  So now, as I am cooking and the recipe calls for one of these ingredients (or often times even if it doesn’t) I take a few steps and pinch some of the fragrant additions to make my dish go from good to gourmet!

So if you find yourself having limited space,  I want to encourage you to buy a few inexpensive decorative pots and fill them with your favorite herbs.  They will give your home a sense of nature and peace throughout the summer season.

Here are a few how-to resources to get you started:

There is nothing like a little friendly competition to motivate people!  That is just what three Warren, Pennsylvania companies did to improve their employees’ health.  A few months ago, the Healing America tour came to Warren and we had the opportunity to meet with these companies.   Not one of the companies had management staff that were already plant-based; however, they were open to new ideas to improve their employees’ health and wellbeing.
