Helping to Heal the Planet at Home!
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 lifestyle changes, efficient homes and diverse, productive, home landscapes.
If our daily decisions helped to damage the world, why not choose differently now? HHH offers designs and guidance for more abundantly healthy lives that can also conserve resources, enhance biodiversity, increase the efficiency of the resources you do use as well as the quality of the the time you spend in your own home’s nature with your family.
Regenerative Landscape Designs
I offer regenerative landscape designs for spaces that can contain raised, vegetable planters, and/or pollinator patches for healthier and beautiful native plants. You’ll love to care for spaces which require less water, less mowing of grass, no chemical fertilizers, herbicides and pesticides, and perennials that return each year. These gardens support your family with food and your surrounding community with a variety of native and non-native flowers, shrubs, trees, vines and bulbs.
Projects to Enhance Our Community’s Health
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 season progresses, organic Runner Beans, organic Cucumbers and lastly, organic 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. HHH has posted free, “Step-By-Step”, 3-5 minute, YouTube videos showing our neighborhood’s children taking each step to grow the seeds into fabulous, tall, vines. These vines produce flowers that create beautiful, yummy, pea pods, cucumbers, string beans or pumpkins for fun, healthy eating right at home.
Healthy Home Challenge
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.
