Gift Ideas for Your Gardener Friends
Don't get me wrong, I love the holidays, but the stress of buying the right gift paralyzes my efforts every year.
I've already exhausted the cat things, dog things, football, and college paraphernalia... I'm just tapped out of ideas sometimes and the window to buy presents is closing.
I've put together this gift idea list to quickly help you find some affordable options for your hard to buy for gardener friends and family. Something that is near and dear to my heart is powerful nutrient rich food close to home. These items below all support that mission.
A quick disclaimer, if you select something from this list and put it in your cart and checkout within 24 hours, Vibrant Soils will receive a percentage of the purchase and I will use this to continue to provide free online content.
I believe that the future of food doesn't come from biotechnology, but instead comes from working with natural systems and processes to generate the most potent and powerful food possible at the local level. If you are with me on this, please consider ordering from the list below. Thank you... ~Jen
You may think of a shovel, hoe, or hose as primary gardening equipment, but I propose that over the next decade, the microscope will become a key piece of farming equipment. I believe there will come a day in my lifetime that every farm producing food for nutrition will have a microscope on site and folks who know how to use it to guide their actions on the ground.
The microscope is the single most powerful tool for assessing and monitoring your soil health.
I own this microscope and chose it because it is solid, highly adjustable, and interfaces with my computer easily for photos. I highly recommend it. Your journey starts here...
What if the one thing missing from your soil was something you were not even looking for? What if it was the one thing you were not testing for? What if you could make your own? What if you could create and give to the soil what it so desperately needed? What if the one thing that was missing was life?
By taking grass seed and mixing it with contents of my worm bin, I was successfully able to establish grass where it failed to start previously. Even with a low rain fall year, this grass needed no tending to. There are many ways to return biology to the soil, but the one you can start now with a low footprint and low input while at the same time getting maximum output would be the worm farm. If you are even thinking of growing food and don't have a piece of land secured yet, get started creating the inoculum you will need. Use it for barter at farmer's market, offer your extra to a neighbor, just get this thing started and ready even if you don't currently have a place to grow food.
Food Gone Wild! ~ Digital Download Product for Immediate Delivery!
Wild edibles are more likely to be powerful and nutrient rich because they have to rely on nature systems and the ebb and flow between the soil microbiology and the plants that grow there. Great for the freshest food available and great for when you are on the road traveling. There is powerful food literally everywhere you turn. Now some of those weeds in your garden... they might not be weeds after all!
This includes Winter Edibles, Edible Trees, Edible Grasses, and Poisonous Plants to stay away from! Amazing Value!
Do you like gadgets? This one is great! Whether you buy food or try your hand at foraging, this is a great way to figure out how powerful your existing food is. Sign up for my free guide for nutrient rich food and I'll send you the corresponding food chart to use with this tool.
This is an introduction into the hidden world that powers the uncultivated landscape. This system works across climates and continents. Learn why wild foods are so potent and powerful and how human food production can be modified to work with these powerful systems. This introductory level guide presumes no previous knowledge of soil biology. No gardening experience is necessary and land is not required in order to experience the transformation in thought that this system conveys. This is the cumulative 'ah-ha' moment I experienced after studying with Geoff Lawton and Dr. Elaine Ingham. My understanding was further tested and confirmed through direct observation and experience. This online guide establishes a framework for a new agricultural practice.
This self study online course will start from the very beginning and outline the steps needed to implement the Vibrant Soils System. This course can be completed at your own pace and gives you the steps to transform your existing growing space into a powerhouse ready for food production. What a treat it will be to grow for nutrition. By partnering with natural systems, you will reduce water consumption and be free of chemical inputs. If you are ready to go beyond organic, this course is for you. Links to soil testing services will be provided as this is additional and not included as part of the online course.
