For 4 years, she ran a worldwide opportunity on organic farms volunteer programs, called a wolfing program. It had nothing to do with wolves. Listen to the podcast to learn more.
What are Leanne’s big take-aways when it comes to gardening and growing food?
The food we eat is very lacking in nutrients and vital energy because it’s been stored and treated. It’s also exposed to many toxins!
For example: Biggest culprit is the garden hose, depending on the brand, contains mercury, lead, other toxic chemicals.
Tip: GatorHyde is a better hose. It’s a drinking water safe hose.
She advises to be really cautious about using paint and wood on the garden beds.
If you use Linseed oil, be warned: All has been treated with different metals and it has toxic compounds in.
TIP: 100% pure tung oil. Does not mildew or go rancid. It has better water-poofing quality.
It’s a little more expensive, but you’ll get more benefits.
Burlap: Most of the time been treated with really toxic, latex-based polymers, dipped in diesel fuel, and the multiple things that the burlap has been used for.
It’s just jute – The smell is the chemical treatment. Get one with virtually no smell or find something labeled untreated.
Shade screen: Typical shade screens are made of common plastic. Over time they decompose, as they get older. They smell bad the older they get.
Blue liquid in ponds: It’s copper based and quite toxic. She installed a structured air aeration system in the pond, with what is called structured water units. As air or water passes through them, it restructures and clears negative memory from them. When put together with a pump and sandstone aerators, it delivers aeration into the pond.
