Dirty Girl: Growing Your Own Garden

Activism, Dirty GirlKate WeinerComment

In celebration of spring, SWM is launching a new column, Dirty Girl, to provide resources, advice, recipes, and how-to's for living a greener life—and having a lot of fun (and getting a little dirty!) while you're at it.

This time of year always fills my heart up with hope. I get excited about planning a garden and inspired by the many good ideas growing within permaculture communities. I love just walking around and soaking up the hundred and one flowers in bloom. Amazing.

Check out this guide from Loam to learn how to build a vertical garden, craft a hanging planter, and nurture a window sill garden. No matter how much space you have, you can start growing a garden this very day. Your soul will thank you.
