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.
