About EFG

Welcome to Earth Friendly Gardening, a blog about gardening, particularly sustainable gardening and more recently, permaculture. I’m interested in how gardening is related to nature and natural ecosystems, and the connection between people and earth, water, and sky. Here, I hope to share resources and information on how to garden in a more “earth-friendly” (sustainable) manner.

I also blog about nature, ecology, conservation, and agriculture. You’ll read about sustainable farming and living, local food, native and invasive plants, trees, the links between human and consumption and natural ecosystems, and other environmental and nature-related issues.

I hope you enjoy Earth Friendly Gardening! Visit often, and feel free to contact me at caroline [at] carolinebrown [dot] com if you have any suggestions or comments.

You have great information, but I was wondering what you are associated with, maybe a university. I need this for my works cited MLA format page on my report. If you could email me back with the answer that would be lovely! Thanks, Leila.

  4. Hi Caroline,
    I’m a newbie blog bug, and I stumbled upon your blog while browsing blotanical. Looks like we have the same goals in sharing sustainable info with others, you on the east coast, and us on the west coast. It’s nice to meet other people with the same passions. Good luck in your endeavors!

  5. Hi Caroline!

    I just stumbled across your blog while doing a search for “organic grass seed”. I live in Warwick and am also learning about gardening, living lightly, and organics. This spring, I’m embarking on a square foot gardening experiment. I have two little ones, and although they’re only 2 & 3, I hope they’ll be a big help in the garden and yard this year. Good luck with your greenery this spring…can’t wait to read more of your blog!
