“Our task must be to free ourselves…
by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures
and the whole of nature and its beauty.”

Albert Einstein

Welcome to The Holistic Garden Blog! I hope you enjoy your visit and perhaps even take away some ideas to try or at least find yourself inspired and encouraged.

If you wonder what a “holistic garden” is, you will find an explanation on the Holistic Garden page.

You can find out more about me if you are interested – on the About page.

On the Blog you will find my musings on the experiments we are doing along the way – what is working and what is not and what we are still in the process of trying. I share 5 mostly wooded acres in southern Oregon with my oldest son, Bryon (and one day soon my youngest son, as well!). Our soil is decomposed granite, which makes the most amazing paths – but needs a huge amount of help to grow even a decent weed!

Thanks for coming and for hanging out, if you do. Check back now and then, as I have just begun the process (Aug. 2015) and have much to add.
