I found a public access road to the beach near my Airbnb in Rincon, Peurto Rico. After learning my “garden escape” Airbnb wasn’t a gardener’s escape, after all, I started exploring nearby land.
I had no idea what to expect. Would I run into more vicious iguanas or get caught in a tarantulas web between two coconut trees? Seriously, imagine visiting an island you’ve never been to before where you encounter random dogs, cats, chickens, and iguanas daily. It’s 2020 — you never know what to expect.
One of the first things I discovered on this public land was…
“A garden is an oasis,” said one CEO who, when asked to describe what they find most fulfilling in their work life, replied: “I like my plants.”
Too often we think about the benefits of gardening and living a healthy lifestyle only for health but forget how it could also benefit our careers. There are generally more pressing matters on hand than tending to sunflowers or planting lettuce bed after bed — yet, studies show that turning off from technology and other distractions offers us much-needed time away from office drama. …

Weeds. The real American enemy. LOL.
It’s no news to you that families, communities, and cities dislike invasive species. In the Rockies, we see plenty of Canadian thistle, Russian knapweed, St. Johnswort, and even Oxeye daisy on the list of priority 2b weeds. The South has plenty of dandelions, crabgrass, and thistle to frustrate homeowners. And the East coast has an extensive list of weeds that I don’t even consider weeds…
The worst part for everyone who’s sick and tired of these plants, weeds are growing stronger and more tolerant of herbicides.
“There are currently 521 unique cases (species x…
Remember the scene in the matrix where Morpheus offers Neo a red or blue pill?
I’ve seen people making this choice all over the world in 2020. And while there is SO much controversy right now, I want to share what we can and are supposed to all agree on:
Today, there is only one planet, and we all share it. We have to stop the destruction of the earth because we live here and our families will continue to live here.
As The Great Reset is underway, economies and communities are changing faster than ever before. …
Since the 2020 pandemic started, more Americans pursued alternative sources of wealth than ever before. From day trading, to driving for Uber Eats, and even growing your own food, modern Americans are flexing their resilience once again.
It’s about time the world gets back to basics and discovers how to remain independent in times of crisis. Some experts recommend saving as much money as possible, but who knows how valuable traditional currency will be in 5 years.
Other experts are certain the government will continue to provide bail outs and stimulus packages. Considering the curve-balls that continue to hit the…
Have you ever seen any animal eat a piece of chocolate and immediately fall over from its toxicity? I really hope not.
My friend and favorite veterinarian, Doc Jones, was kind enough to discuss this topic with me. We are both life-long learners and wanted to touch on a hot topic that could affect our cuddliest loved ones.
If your furry friend gets into your favorite chocolate chips, you might not have to worry.
It’s really all about dosage. And if you have a larger dog, chances are they might have just hit their limit on chocolate and not life…
Ever traveled and noticed an unkept property? Or watch your dad complain about the crab grass? What if I told you, that weeds aren’t as terrible as we’ve been conditioned to think?
Mainstream brands have benefited from teaching us to kill weeds. But, I’ve joined my long-time friend and mentor, Katrina Blair, to teach people that it’s best to love weeds.
“A weed is but an unloved flower.” ― Ella Wheeler Wilcox
Compost piles are essential for your home garden to produce high-quality, super delicious, and inexpensive food. Still, they’re one of the most underrated things in the garden.
To get started composting, follow these 3 steps:
I had some friends house sit my property in Colorado while I was away in Puerto Rico. Well, they decided to build a compost bin for the property rather than tossing food scraps. I really appreciated the gesture and effort they put into this project. The system they…
In less than two months, it will be the International Year of Peace and Trust, the International Year of Creative Economy for Sustainable Development, and the International Year of Fruits and Vegetables. Knowing how dedicated the members of the United Nations are, this is good news. Interestingly enough, as food prices increase and food production continues to face destruction due to the global impact of COVID-19, there’s no telling how the UN is going to pull this off.
I’m a self-reliant expert on a mission to stop the destruction of the earth. At The Grow Network, I’ve inspired hundreds of…
