Back in October, before I went on my online break, my friend Nicola Chatham and I filmed the final video in our Edible Garden series. Now, I can finally share it with you! We created this series of videos to demonstrate the process of building an organic veggie patch from scratch – from planning, to planting herbs, to creating compost and a worm farm, and finally to constructing the main veggie patch.Read More
Want to help save the world from global warming, improve air quality and increase the nutritional value of your food? Start composting! All month we’ve been celebrating the Edible Garden and talking about the importance of supporting organic farming and replenishing the humus layer of our soil.
At the heart of all of this is the act of composting. This is something every single one of us can do at home, and it’s this one simple act that is going to have the greatest impact on cleaning up our environment.Read More
Why does one want a worm farm? This was the question I asked when I first heard that this was a step in my Edible Garden series, and the answer is a goodie. Having your very own worm farm means that you’ll be able to make your own natural and organic fertilisers to really super-charge the quality of garden. Plus, it means that you can recycle your food scraps (worms LOVE juicer scraps, for example) and lighten the load you’re dumping into landfill. Win, win, win.Read More
One of the things I missed most when I moved into my new home was the abundance of herbs we had in our backyard at my parent’s place. So, the first job I asked my friend and organic gardening teacher Nicola Chatham to get onto during our Edible Garden series is a flourishing balcony garden filled with yummy medicinal herbs.Read More
During this video in our Edible Garden series, Nicola Chatham and I chat about the food I want to grow in my organic herb garden and veggie patch. Nic talks us through some common and uncommon medicinal herbs that are easy to grow in a balcony garden and in pots, and well as some larger veggies that will be more suitable for the backyard patch.Read More
Today I’m kicking off the first video in a series I’m collaborating on with my friend and organic gardening teacher Nicola Chatham. Nic is helping me create an organic veggie patch in my backyard plus a balcony herb garden – all totally from scratch. We’re filming the whole process from start to finish to show you how you can do it in your own space.Read More
There’s not much that tops hanging out with David Wolfe on a Friday night. Sure, he was in a gym in Amsterdam having just finished a rebounding class with his breatharian friend, and I was sitting in my bedroom-slash-office here in Australia, and we were hanging out via Skype – but it was still very, very cool.
David Wolfe is the eccentric, freakishly knowledgeable and wildly popular wellness superstar. He more than earns his titles as one of the world’s leading experts in nutrition, and the “rock star” of the raw food world.Read More
I’m so excited about today’s interview with my good friend Dr Sherrill Sellman. A little while ago Sherrill told me about something called Nutritional Genomic Testing, which is a simple test that tells you, based on your genes, where you are most vulnerable and most at risk for creating poor health.Read More
A little while ago I watched an early version of a brilliant movie called THE CURE IS … and one of the stand out health experts featured in this film is the leading health authority Paul Chek. So when I was offered an interview with Paul, I jumped at it.
In this interview, I chat with Paul about the power of the mind and what we can do to harness this power to heal our bodies and create what we want in life.Read More
About a year ago my friend Cyndi O’Meara invited me to a wellness evening where Dr Sherrill Sellman spoke about women’s hormones. My mum and I went along, however being totally oblivious to the intricacy and importance of hormones, I thought mum would get more out of it than me. Boy, was I wrong. I left that evening feeling so proud to have lady parts, and also so angry that we are not taught the truth about them at any stage of our lives.Read More
