Did you know that switching to organic gardening and improving the health of the soil in your garden could combat global warming?
You may have already heard that avoiding toxic chemicals in your garden like Roundup, a.k.a. glyphosate, is critical to avoiding cancer.
In this interview for the Natural Healing Show for UK Health Radio, medical intuitive healer Catherine Carrigan interviews horticultural consultant Lisa Dailey, founder of https://www.cultivatewithintention.com/.
Climate change experts from around the world have recently concluded that improving the health of the soil may be one of the easiest ways to combat global warming.
You can learn more about this little-known fact by watching the documentary movie Kiss the Ground on Netflix narrated by Woody Harrelson. You can learn more about the movie at the official website here: https://kissthegroundmovie.com
“Kiss the Ground reveals that, by regenerating the world’s soils, we can completely and rapidly stabilize Earth’s climate, restore lost ecosystems and create abundant food supplies,” the movie’s website asserts.
Although you may not be able to change farming practices in your community, you can amend the soil in your own garden with organic matter such as cow manure, mushroom compost and composted material.
In so doing, your garden will be even more beautiful and you will avoid the toxic chemicals that may otherwise wreck your health.
Scientists quoted in Kiss the Ground believe the earth has only 60 years of top soil left, so everything you can do now to protect the little part of the planet under your guardianship is critical.
I first met organic gardening advocate Lisa Dailey years ago when we were growing up together in Savannah, Georgia.
Recently she created a whole new plan for my side garden.
About a year ago I had to pay $3,000 to cut down a tree in my neighbor’s yard that was lying at a 15 degree angle over the driveway where I park my car.
In the state of Georgia, there are specific laws governing who is legally responsible should a neighbor’s tree fall on your property.
Once I notified my neighbor about the hazard, I could have waited until the tree fell, but I figured there would be a good chance that my dog or I could be in the way of said catastrophe and end up dead, given the number of recent storms that have felled trees in our neighborhood.
The arborists I hired did a great job of handling an awkward situation because they had to position their heavy machinery over a small stone stairway to reach over a fence into my neighbor’s yard.
However, when they were done, my side yard, which had previously been full of small trees and ivy, was completely trashed.
My handyman Chris Banks and I set out to remedy the situation.
At first we rented a tiller from Home Depot to chop up the ivy but the job was so challenging I ended up purchasing a Greenworks battery operated tiller so that we could tackle the job over time.
Trust me, lifting weights in a gym is easy compared to pulling deeply embedded ivy out of Georgia garden soil!
After tearing out the old ivy and removing countless old bricks we discovered buried under the ivy, we mixed in 16 bags of cow manure and 16 bags of organic mushroom compost.
In so doing, we opened up huge new territory to beautify my organic garden.
I asked Lisa Dailey to draw up a plan that would include butterfly-loving camellias, limelight hydrangeas, daisies, peonies, catmint, delphiniums, roses, sasanquas, yarrow as well as black-eyed susans that I could easily transplant from other parts of my garden.
Chris Banks and I planted everything on Sunday and nature watered the new garden with three days of rain this week.

About two years ago Chris and I painted the outside of my house together, saving about $9,000 in the process. He tends my garden, has painted every room on the inside of my house and lends his practical know-how to keeping my 80-year-old home in working order.
By nourishing the soil in your own garden with organic materials, you can do what you can do to combat global climate change, reduce the toxic chemical load that kills butterflies, bees and hummingbirds and improve your own mental and physical health.
