Overview

If you are like most people, you probably tried your hand at gardening at some point in your life. And, if you were successful, kudos to you! Many of us have that proverbial "black thumb," however, and are slightly less successful - actually a lot less successful.

No matter which category you fall under, you might want to rethink your ideas and gardening practices. Science has gardening on a commercial level down to an exact process.

Gone are the days of the small farmer who grew fresh vegetables and sold them on a roadside stand. Some even sold them to local grocery stores. And, while we do admire the displays at the grocery today, it's a good bet that much of that produce came from countries far away and were not even ripe for picking.

Unfortunately for us, in the world we live in today, our vegetables are grown in pest free environments, engineered to look good and are often picked and stored in huge areas until they are shipped to our local grocers. Indeed, while the produce looks beautiful, it's often lacking in good flavour and sometimes borders on tasting like cardboard!

Ask yourself these three questions:
What if there were a way to turn it all around for your family?
What if you were able to recover a new enthusiasm for your food?
What if there were a way to dare to eat healthy?

Well, you can and it's much easier than you may think.
How?
Okay, since you are still reading it's a pretty good bet that you have either tried your hand at gardening or would like to learn how to do it.

While there are tons of expensive books that you can buy that will give you lots of "theory" there are few that actually give you hands on step by step experience from a guy who has done it.

And, while most of those authors are very well known and icons in their venue, how often do you see others actually change their gardening habits as a result of reading them?

Not very often, I'd wager. Why do you think that is? Are the principles not sound? Of course they are. Is the content faulty? Not at all. Well, then what is the problem?

Usually, the problem is. . .are you ready. . .desire and belief!

It's easy to believe that a "gardening guru" can build a successful garden! After all the gardeners you watch on T.V. have a whole production staff to do nothing but make sure the guy's garden is perfect right down to the last little leaf.

You believe that it's impossible for you to master gardening like the guru so you lose what? The desire! So what's the problem with you? You've never been able to believe that YOU can do the same.

Well, we're here to tell you today that you can. You just need to believe it. And how do you do that? Where do you get that kind of knowledge? Glad you asked. You need our handy little guide called "Your Organic Gardening Guide!"

And some of the best parts are...
It isn't written by a T.V. guru. It’s very easy to read.
It doesn’t require much time to find out what works and what doesn't.
Cost of the guide is minimal – you'll laugh at the price!

Everything is there to help you understand that you CAN do this and most importantly you can learn very quickly how to garden ORGANICALLY. The very fact that a regular guy just like us has been able to provide his family with their own healthy vegetables is reason enough to jump at the chance to learn how you can do it too. Take a look at what you'll uncover:

Learn how to get started the right way.
Find out how to get rid of pests without harsh chemicals.
Discover what fertilizers to use.
Feeding your garden and more!

Meet the Author

Adam Fawcett started gardening as a young child under the careful supervision of his parents.

Adam said, “They weren’t committed to organic gardening but did avoid the use of the most potentially dangerous chemicals which were allowed to be used and, sometimes, even recommended for general use in those days.”

“People were using arsenic-based weed-killers and highly toxic pesticides in large quantities and we’re certainly paying for those mistakes now.”

“I learned good habits because I had my list of chores in the family garden. I saw that the rewards like larger crops which came from doing them well and I really loved the better taste which the vegetables we grew had over almost all of those which we bought from the stores.”

Adam became more interested in the organic gardening methods when he became a parent himself.

“My wife was also a keen gardener and very concerned about the impact of chemical fertilizers and sprays on the environment generally as well as the safety aspects for our children now and into the future.”

“We were soon convinced that there are benefits from adopting a more cooperative approach to gardening to reduce the impact we have on the animals and plants we share the planet with and on which we depend for our continued health and well-being.”

Adam wrote this eBook to share the tips and strategies which they have found most useful and to help his readers benefit from their experience.

“I share what has worked for me and try to correct some of the widely held beliefs which keep some people from getting the benefits we now enjoy.”

It isn’t necessary to make big changes to your lifestyle or your gardening methods. You don’t have to do everything I say – use what appeals to you and leave the rest for later consideration.

“Start small and take it a step at a time, but please start now so you get the maximum benefit from this eBook!”
