|About||Growing into life's possibilities! How to create an organic food, herb, & fruit garden, and wildlife & native pollinator habitat in your own backyard using natural, low cost, and easy to maintain methods.|
Sunny Glen Wellness wants to show others that growing your own food in your backyard can be fun, simple and cheap to start, easy to maintain and grow, and produce healthy fresh food almost all year round. You don't need to know all of this yourself, as this can be done through the sharing of ideas, information, equipment and resources, with neighbors and friends, where everyone is included and can enjoy it together.
Sunny Glen Wellness has a food garden and certified wildlife habitat in the North Linden community of Columbus, Ohio. Dianne and Stephen are working towards a self-sustainable and self-sufficient veggie and fruit food production in their urban backYarden instead of growing grass, using natural methods that require minimal care, produce a lot of food, and contribute to health and wellbeing of people, creatures, and the planet.
In about 1000 sq ft of space, the Sunny Glen Garden has a baby perennial food forest consisting of chestnut, (fruit trees to come), hazelnut bushes, and a variety of currant, gooseberry & raspberries, an annual veggie garden, and flowers for the pollinators. Seeds are saved and traded in various seed saver groups in the neighborhood.
They have a miniature sprouting operation with heat mats & grow lights where all the sprouties were started for the garden and a low cold frame with a temperature controlled wax cylinder opener to extend the growing season.
A donated barrel composter, newspaper & recycled cardboard, leaf mulching & cured horse manure adds nutrients in the soil, and a drainable pond to collect rain water assists with irrigation.
Come join in the fun!
