Creating your Healthy Home Habitat
Regenerative Garden Design
The “Easy-Peasy Vining Vegetables”
Home Efficiency Hacks
HHH is based at what was a 1900’s, 2,100 SF, four bedroom, two bath house. Through FB posts, we share the various steps and experiments that continue to improve this home’s energy efficiency and regenerative life practices as now, a nearly-completely renovated duplex with a bevy of efficiency “hacks”, our gardens and our 32 passive and photovoltaic solar tools providing 80% power for our lights/heat/electricity.
The Healthy Home Challenge
HHH facilitates a process beginning with an interview and proceeding to suggested 3-month, 9-months and 2-year changes that can shift a client’s existing home/property to more efficiency, abundance, beauty, health and less chemicals. A client may be able to achieve a HHH Explorer status quite quickly and in time they can achieve the status of HHH Competitor and potentially achieve the pinnacle as a HHH Champion. Exterior HHH medallions are available for each level to communicate the property’s fabulously-improved efficiency and health status. They can be mounted on trees, posts or structures.
About Healthy Home Habitats
Healthy Home Habitats (HHH) believes that every American can have a more vibrantly healthy life while helping to heal the world right from their own home with small lifestyle changes and efficient, diverse, home landscapes.
If our daily decisions helped to damage the world, why not choose differently now? HHH offers daily living tips for more abundantly healthy lives that also conserve resources, enhance biodiversity, increase the efficiency of the resources you use as well as the the quality of the the time you spend in your own home’s nature with your family.
I offer regenerative landscape designs, for spaces that contain plants you love which are not only beautiful but also require less resources, less mowing of grass, no chemical fertilizers, herbicides and pesticides, perennials that return every year delighting their eyes, supporting your family with food and their surrounding ecosystems with a variety of native and non-native flowers, shrubs, trees, vines and bulbs throughout the seasons.
I offer projects to enhance our community’s health. “Easy-Peasy Vining Vegetables”, for example, is a beginner’s and/or family, garden project that gives anyone with soil along a fence (or in a pot), sunshine (6-8 hours of full sun), a vertical element (such as a fence, trellis or suspended strings), and water (from a hose or a bucket), the simple steps to grow vegetables right at home! We start the growing season with organic, Sugar Snap Pea Pods, then as the growing season progresses, organic, Scarlet Runner Beans, organic Corinto Cucumbers and lastly, organic Cinnamon Girl Pumpkins. A person or family can grow just one or all four! Each of these vegetables are direct sown and produce abundant, fun crops with a weekly attention. Every week HHH posts free, “Step-By-Step”, YouTube videos showing our neighborhood’s children taking each step to grow the seeds into fabulous, tall, vines that flower and create beautiful, yummy, pea pods, cucumbers, string beans or pumpkins for fun, healthy eating right at home.
And lastly I offer a Healthy Home Challenge. This starts with an interview and results in a list of suggested 3 month, 9 months and 2-year changes that shift a client’s existing home/property to one of more abundance, more nature, more efficiency, more beauty, less chemicals, more healing and/or more health. A client may be able to achieve a HHH Explorer status quite quickly and in time they can achieve the status of HHH Warrior and potentially achieve the pinnacle as a HHH Champion.
