An Experiment in Back Yard Sustainability

pm51_150.jpgTour Scott McGuire’s “White Sage Gardens” in the back yard of his rental home — a demonstration site for suburban sustainability. He ponders, “How might a household produce and preserve a significant portion of its own food supply?” Composting, a water-conserving greenhouse, and seed-saving are all facets of this beautiful work in progress.

  1. Scott didn’t mention how he uses principles from Findhorn and Anastasia (Ringing Cedars series) to prepare his garden. These principles can make all the difference, especially in a first year garden with soils that have been abused or neglected for a while.

    This video has renewed my hopes for gardening! I lived in the same place for twenty years and had edible landscaping throughout my yard. When I lost my home in the foreclosure crisis I had to move frequently, and gave up hope of growing my own food. This video proves that we can do it! Thank you <3

  2. As a life long native plant lover and gardener I LOVE what you’re doing with Peak Moments, your video’s are so well done that even a newbie can get started right away. Thank you, keep up the GREAT work!
