Two of my favorites- permaculture and passionfruit. This article is the best of both worlds- or helps to create it!!
Passionfruit surprise in our garden

Capturing the taste of the sweet summer sun, blue skies and laughter, our signature Blackberry Basil Jam is sure to please.
Each bite of our Blackberry Basil Jam will remind you of the time you, too, stepped off the path up to taste your very own straight off the vine blackberries.
Requested by chefs and fans – like my nephew pictured here picking blackberries – this crisp, clean, earthy basil is hand-cut and added to the freshest blackberries – near bursting with their juices.
Be sure to secure a jar for yourself! Available for purchase
online and at Locations and Events like these.
Take a moment and tell us about your blackberry picking adventures!

So proud! I harvested Melissa and Aloe from my herb garden alongside with honey and wax from my bee hives to make my very first batch of lip balm. I love the results! After a few days I’m already seeing great results and enjoy the consistency of the balm, too. It’s amazing how quickly the impact of good, organic ingredients can impact our bodies.

Many thanks to
