Nature is essential to me. As a small boy, I grew up living on the edge of what seemed to be a vast rainforest. While the canopy of a forest of 150 foot high Douglas firs is a commanding structure to an adult, it was magic to me as a small boy
My garden works on the sound natural principles that I learned as a boy studying that forest. It must be organic or as close to acceptable organic practices as possible, including the indoor spaces. In an organic garden compost is life. Good compost provides all the nutrients that the garden needs to flourish.
