Benefits

Why Have Home Garden?

There are MANY reasons to have a home garden. I've thought of a few that I share here. What are your reasons for wanting to grow your own produce at home?

Savings

Once you have your garden set up, you can grow your own high quality foods for less cost. Be in charge of your own food supply.

Health

Good health is our most valuable asset. We don’t often realize it until it’s gone. Protect or regain your health by growing your own energy stock.

Restore

Grounding, also known as earthing, directly connects your body with Earth’s natural electric grid to stabilize you. I did not make this up. Earthing is an ancient practice.

Accomplishment

Want a confidence boost? Bring your homegrown salad, loaded with herbs, edible flowers, vitamins and minerals to your table. Harvest that vine ripened tomato, sweet melon or refreshing cucumber and proudly say, “I did that!”

Community

Sharing with friends and family a homegrown meal, herbal tea, fresh juice, or smoothie from your own garden is a great way to foster community and connection.

Inspire your children

Children LOVE to help in the garden. Harvesting their first strawberry, radish, or pea pod is a huge delight to a child. Watch their little eyes light up!

Sustainability

Your own and the planet. Sustain your health, provide for your family’s live food needs, reduce pesticide and plastic use. The home garden is the ultimate in reducing, reusing and recycling.

Increase your home’s value

Your well designed home garden (food, flowers, herbs, maybe a water feature) adds value to your home. Creating a haven you want to be in, means others will want to be there, too.

Who I Am

About Jeannine

Jeannine is a fourth generation Colorado native. She has been gardening since the 1970’s when she started one of the few (only!) successful gardens in Grand Lake, Colorado at over 8,000 ft in elevation and a very short growing season.

She orchestrated a tiny plot in the Denver Highlands to produce enough delicious produce to feed her family of six using organic and vertical gardening techniques, ultimately winning the prize of “Best Small Garden” in Denver.

Gardening can be tricky. It can take years of trial and error and a lot of patience to fine tune. If you want to shortcut the learning curve and start producing quality, healthy, organic food now… you should call her!

Jeannine has lived and gardened in the mid-west, northwest, the high mountains, and confines of the city. Along the way she has coached numerous aspiring gardeners to navigate difficult gardening conditions to successes of their own.

Jeannine believes that vital health starts with the quality of the food we eat. She has learned much from her love of healthy, organic, trusted food and thinks it is time to make that knowledge available to all.
