Grow Your Own Food | Gardening for Greater Health

How would you like to grow your own food for dinner? Step outside your door or head to a special place on your counter and grab your spinach or microgreens, wash them and enjoy? 

No matter where you live, my guest today tells us we can do this. I love the idea of pulling it out of the ground and eating it full of nutrients instead of knowing it’s been flown or trucked in, sat in the store and then in my refrigerator… all the while losing nutrients. 

And of course, that’s if the nutrient density of the soil it was grown in was good to begin with. We’ve got reasons to want better nutrition than we can buy at the grocery store. 

My Guest:  

Katie Oglesby is an edible Garden Designer and holistic health coach on a mission to help her clients to stop being passive participants in their health journeys and become courageous, informed advocates for their wellbeing. As a Garden Coach and Real Food Advocate, she fuses the healing power of gardening with the healing power of food-as-medicine in her garden designs and holistic approach to a garden-to-table lifestyle.

Questions We Answer in This Episode:

  • What propelled  you into leading a gardening?
  • What happens to nutrient density from harvest to the refrigerator or the time we cook it?
  • How easy is it to grow your own salad or herb garden?
  • Do you have tips about growing in seasons?
  • How can you grow in the off-season or small spaces?
  • Why are you a fan of utilizing herbs more and avoiding the spice aisle?
  • Any other benefits of gardening beyond the food density?
