Susan is a dietician who knows that nutrition is absolutely fundamental to a healthy life. So Susan started gardening right at home… And eventually bought a whole farm to expand what she could grow!
With the new location, Susan and her husband are running into some typical challenges, experiencing new pests and wondering how they can work with their climate better.
Susan shares “To me the soil is the gut of the earth. Just like our guts, it needs to be very diverse in microbes, same thing as us. And the healthier I get the soil, the healthier the plants will be, and the healthier I will be.”
Watch the conversation here for some climate tips (and garden advice from a Dietician!).
We’re so glad you’re enjoying watching and getting ideas for gardening!
I enjoy watching and getting ideas for gardening. I want to start eating healthier foods and get off the meds I’m on. Thanks for enthusiasm and desire to help
Does “cheat the season” also apply to planting those root veggies in a greenhouse? If so, I’m assuming you need to cover them with hoops?
Right on! I volunteer at my local [email protected] program and am always amazed at how children love good food when they are involved in all the steps….from growing, harvesting, cooking. It’s a beautiful thing. How can I find out more about Susan? Thank you!
I have terrible soil here in Cyprus. My sweet potatoes did not make it. Is there an easy way to make good soil from good compost. Right now I put my kitchen vegetable scraps right into the soil. Is this a good “formula”. Or do i need to do something more eladorate?
I’m looking forward to this GYOG course! This video reminds me to make sure I set aside the time to listen carefully and take notes during the course.
What got my attention is when Susan said in the first minute that when her husband started eating the wholesome food that she was preparing from scratch, that he stopped needing to take his medications. This is something that would benefit at least 75% of Americans and numerous others worldwide. Keep it up, Stacey!

That was a sweet video!♡
I’ve been on a piece of property for 17 years and I have a area that was a gravel parking lot that I put in pots small to large.
husband is at landscape r
& brought plants trees bushes etc that people didn’t want anymore… peach trees berry bushes herbs I mean just everything.@
and now I have to move in these pots, that have been in the ground in the gravel of the parking lot for so long they’ve got a Taproot going in ground.
I got to leave in two months I live in beautiful Northern California 45 minutes north of San Francisco, like the Mediterranean
He says we’re just cut the Taproot and then cut the top back and then they should be okay
otherwise we’d have to leave him and I don’t want to do that any tips???
Bless & the u
An excellent and inspiring start to the series, thank you, Catherine.
