Yesterday I was hiking in the Malibu hillside and was amazed to see how many properties had sustainable landscaping. Many of them had graded their hills using stones, gravel, and crushed wood chips.
The properties were also alive with many citrus trees as well as other fruit and vegetable gardens.
I have noticed that individuals with large hillsides are putting in wineries as well. Some are small crops and some use up the entire space.
If you have ever been to Malibu you know Rosenthal, and Malibu wines are popular weekend spots as well as SIP and Saddlerock. These wines pride themselves on producing grapes locally.
So many residents are using their own backyard as a sustainable market for their own needs. Avocado, eggplant, beans are just a few things ground in our local areas.
Even if your home is small or your backyard is limited you can find ways to grow tomatos, herbs or fruits in small spaces.
When you eat something grown by your own hands the tastes are amazing and the benefits are fulfilling since you have put your own energies into growing this item.
Before you know it spring will be here. Perhaps it is time for you to have your own susstainable garden.
As always be well and Protect our land.
