Land Care Organically
The name Eat MY Shrubs came from the idea that we can plant beautiful gardens that are completely edible! Growing food does not have to be in a rectangular shaped, tilled-row garden. The best gardens are interplanted species, or polycultures.
This is because some plants are only there to benefit the plants that we really want. They may attract beneficial insects, or fool herbaceous animals away from other plants. Also, all this can be achieved without the use of harmful chemicals, or practices that destroy what we now have come to realize is, the delicate balance of life in the soil.
Spending time outside on your property, no matter the size or setting (urban or rural), has a positive effect on your health and well being. Choosing to practice organic land care is not only important if your growing food. Ornamental gardens, meant to be a relaxing setting, can be anything but, if your are spraying chemicals everywhere to make it look good and keep the mosquitos away, or spending your weekends pulling dandelions.
Hence the tagline, “Not only are they beautiful, you can Eat MY Shrubs”
