Having trouble finding your motivation? Moving forward with your co-creative garden is more urgent than ever. (Learn More)

The foundation you build now with your nature partner will become what you rely on for support in many areas of your life. Your partnership will give you the answers to increased environmental challenges. And it's only with nature's help that we will be able to turn the tide of environmental destruction.

Still not motivated? Read Machaelle's Final Thoughts from The Perelandra Garden Workbook.

Keep in mind, she wrote this in 2012, while the U.S. government had climate change as a top priority issue. It's now up to us to make and keep this a top priority issue in each of our lives. Ready?! Begin here with Part 1.

Did you jump in with us two weeks ago, and have you already completed Parts 1 and 2?

This next part is fun and exciting. Let's get on with it!

Getting seeds and plants

Here's a head start!

If you have never ordered from seed and plant companies and have no idea where to begin, we have listed a few below that carry organic and heirloom seeds and plants. Some offer a full variety of conventional, hybrid, organic and heirloom. Many have a good master list to work from. You aren't required to work with just these companies. We have worked with many different good seed companies over the years. You want what is best for your garden, in light of your DDP.

Seeds of Change

Southern Exposure

Baker Creek

High Country Gardens

American Meadows

Grow Organic

Thyme Garden

These two have good master lists to use for testing which vegetables, herbs and flowers you'll need:

Park Seed

Johnny's Seeds
