Eco-logical Gardening Handbook

Realise the potential for your land to give you more support with growing food.

Growing food is a great idea...

...but what about all the work involved and frustrations when our leafy greens get chewed, our fruit gets riddled with holes, tomatoes wilt, and we have to apply fertilisers and pest controls to have any chance of harvesting a decent crop!

Sometimes it can seem less trouble and even cheaper to swing by the supermarket to have food in the fridge ready for when we come home tired and hungry...

There is, however, a remarkably straightforward solution that we tend to overlook - repairing the ecological functions (ecosystems) in our gardens.

Using this eco-logical approach makes sense because we realise the potential for our land to give us more support with growing food.

  1. Reduce your fertilisers, pest controls, and other input costs - relying instead on your ecosystems' free ecological services
  2. Improve your food security - developing ecosystems capable of bouncing back from extreme weather events
  3. Produce wholesome food

We urgently need world-changing solutions to improve our food supplies and help solve the climate and environmental emergency. Getting the ecosystems in gardens functioning again, we seize the opportunity to cultivate healthier relationships with our environment from the ground up!

Why this Ecological Approach makes Sense

Leave your spade in the shed. Give the job of making good soil structure to the experts – your soil organisms.

Save money on organic pest controls with a team of technologically advanced, highly motivated insect and bird pest controllers.

Give the microbes and other organisms in your soil ecosystem the job of managing your fertiliser regime.

Improve your harvests  growing extra extra solar panels.

Eco-friendly

You'll reduce your environmental footprint requiring fewer external inputs, and supply vital ecosystem services – biodiversity, carbon sequestration, and flood mitigation - as natural by-products from repairing the ecological functions in your garden.

Reliable Pathway to Follow

Nature provides the technology. Applying ecological principles, we combine the expertise Nature has developed over billions of years, with our ingenuity, to grow food in ways that care for our health and environment.

We gain the know-how to trial techniques, learn and share our experiences. Established gardening practices become the source and inspiration for ideas, rather than recipes to follow.

Superb Value

With the 'Eco-logical Gardening Handbook', you get much more than a repackaged list of organic, no-dig, and other sustainable, chemical-free gardening practices.

You benefit from over 12 years of research clarifying and validating the ecological principles underpinning successful regenerative techniques and translating this 'eco-logic' into an easily digestible grower-friendly format.

With the know-how to repair your ecological functions, you can use the 'Inventory of Tools', together with the links to videos showing other growers' experiences, to help you get the ecosystems in your garden 'up and running' again and firing on all cylinders!

 

Frequently Asked Questions

Will this approach work in my climate?

Gardeners and farmers from the cold north of Scotland to Africa's hot, sultry tropics and arid landscapes use this ecological approach. The ecological principles are the same. The techniques and species we use differ as we adapt these practices to our growing conditions.

Will the 'eco-logic'work for what I grow?

Yes, the fundamental principles are the same, and straightforward to apply to find suitable techniques for the food you grow.

Does the size of my property matter?

Size doesn't matter. Smallholders, market, community and back-yard gardeners, and large-scale farming operations get healthy functioning soils and pest resistant landscapes by repairing their ecological infrastructure.

Will I harvest less food?

Gardeners usually get higher and more reliable yields, with less impacts from pests, diseases and bad weather. You'll also gain opportunities to grow more food with the space you have available.

Why I am passionate about Eco-logical Gardening

"It's crazy to ignore millions of years of innovation, particularly as Nature has carried out research in every climate and growing condition on the planet, including our own!

It amazes me that I didn't realise earlier how many jobs we do and  inputs we use as subsitutes are unnecessary when we get our ecosystems functioning again. But then virtually everyone was doing the same; believing that it was impossible to grow food without these interventions.

We didn't realise what we had lost. Take a look at any healthy natural ecosystem in your region. Does anyone need to spread mulch, compost and other bio-fertilisers, control pests, weed or mow?

Valuing Nature for what we can learn, and combining this wisdom with human ingenuity, we can get the ecological functions in our gardens and farms working again.

It's eco-logical! And the most powerful tool we have to solve the climate and ecological emergency."
