"I am not a gardener."
. . . and other misunderstandings.


Which of the following best describes you?

A. I don't have any place to put a garden! My home is a studio walk-up apartment, with no lawn, yard or patio.

B. Sweat. Dirt. Bugs. Ick. Yuck. Ewwww. Please don't make me garden.

C. My normally thrifty partner pays for a "plant-sitter" when he's out of town and I'm at home. What's the opposite of a green-thumb?

D. Soil-less gardens are more my thing. And I have so many going right now, there's no way I can fit even a small garden into my schedule.

E. Why is Perelandra talking to me about gardens? Perelandra is the place I call when I need more ETS.

If you answered:

A. Ever considered a house plant? A potted flower? A few kitchen herbs on the windowsill? Bringing a little green into your home can brighten your place, add life vitality. Give you someone to talk to when no one else is around. If you aren't home much, how about your desk, cubical, office?

B. See "A." Or, consider this: If you go out on your porch or patio in the early morning or at sundown for some fresh air, or just to receive a hand-off from FedEx, wouldn't it be sweet to see a lovely plant or flower pot there? Wouldn't that entice you to sit for a moment while it's not too sunny and have a cup of tea, ignoring your bleeping, dinging, buzzing cell phone, iPad, laptop.

C. Do you have a little space, inside or out that your partner avoids? Want to make it a place where you can relax and take a chance, learn what you can do with your own plant or a pot of flowers, when the pressure's off?

D. Want to take your soil-less garden (SLG) projects to a new level? Improve your communication with your SLG team? Improve your SLG successes?!

E. The Perelandra garden is where, why and how everything we offer exists, including that ETS in your pocket. Machaelle spent 25 years learning from nature in the garden before developing ETS, and her partnership continues to be the driving force behind Perelandra. Your partnership with nature will take you places you've never imagined. vine-covered-chair.jpg

There is no escaping the reality that the earth's environment has drastically changed in terrible ways in your lifetime. Even if you do actually live in a cave, or in a tiny cabin deep in the woods, all alone with just a solar panel and some distant cell tower giving you access to this email, the effects are impacting you. These past 10-15 years alone have shown us if we humans are to survive, nature needs us to step up and have a hand in saving ourselves from the destruction we've caused. We have proven beyond a shadow of a doubt, humans can't fix this without nature's input.

Saving the whole planet, the rainforests, the oceans, dying frogs, melting polar caps on your own is just too overwhelming. And, frankly, impossible.

Aim to make a bit of positive difference in your home, with your family and companion animals. Let this be the reason you start a partnership with nature. It can grow from there in a natural and useful way.

We're on our "soapbox" aiming to rally and inspire you to try Gut Gardening this year. You don't need to have any "special gifts" to do this. It is easy. The densest among us can succeed. It would take about 15 minutes each week of your time. That's 15 minutes a week to focus on working with nature in a new way. 15 minutes.

How much time did you spend today scrolling through Facebook, Twitter, your inbox or an online sale? Or staring mindlessly at the TV? Reading the latest gossip? Taking another selfie? We all waste 15 minutes a week somewhere. Gut Gardening won't waste any of your time. The process and your newfound partnership with nature will fit into your life seamlessly.

Those weekend Garden One Bite emails we send that you thought didn't apply to you . . . They each give you one short, simple step to do for your co-creative Gut Garden. And that's all you have to do for the whole week.

We are so passionate about encouraging as many folks as possible to try a co-creative garden this year, so determined to do our part to help reverse the damage being done, that we're willing to give you the information you need for Gut Gardening FREE.
