Feeling just so grateful to be in Montana.

Feeling kind of blessed just to be alive! Right? Gotta keep a good attitude!

We can be candid! My listeners always say Jackie don't be so stuck to your script! I'm the one who likes my script!

Welcome to the GREEN Organic Gardener Podcast!

Hey everyone! It's Tuesday, March 25, 2020! I'm on spring break and managed to book as many guests as I could this week! So if you want to be a guest reach out to me! I've gotten a lot of new listeners since I was on the Melissa Norris Show followed by Jeff Lowenfells and then Jeff Ditchfield so there are probably a lot of new listeners who didn't hear your first episode!

Tell us a little about yourself.

Tell me about your first gardening experience?

I am the host of the Green Home Coach

gardening is not my best asset

part of my home

I got into grow boxes years ago

we found them

Scott just went out to the shed to make sure to

this is actually a company that specializes in these

  • 18-20 inches wide
  • feet long
  • 16 -18 inches tall
  • they have a reservoir on the bottom
  • we talked about that before
  • remembering to water
  • with this reservoir in the bottom
  • the roots of the plants go down so they draw the water up
  • bottom of the grow box that I buy

green home certification pretty high bar

cleaning is a great place to start

  • something we all do in our homes if we don’t we should
  • it is really easy to accidentally bring a lot of stuff into your house
  • chemicals that may add up
  • challenging
  • chemicals are tested

only look at one time that you are getting this certain level that is safe

repeatedly exposed to it

some kind of scent or fragrance

the levels that they are being tested on in one occurrence

I choose to take as many of these chemicals out of my home as I can

safer less toxic toilet cleaners

  • all purpose cleaner
  • laundry soap
  • personal care products

just about everything

less is more

as I use up stuff

simplify what I buy

3-4 cleaners in the past

looking to go to 2-3

Shabby Chick Cleaners

  • woman owned business
  • won the SBA award
  • really cool

I have 2 cleaners

  • cleans everything
  • on my grease stove
  • shiny surfaces
  • alcohol based cleaner

that’s all I need is those two

if I want a scrubby powder

scrubby powders is bon ami
