Organizing your space and the aspects of your life is the greatest gift of all. Every day I see individuals and businesses overwhelmed by chaos and disorder. The lack of time, training and systems makes 'getting organized' seem impossible. I invite you to try the Clear & SIMPLE Way to get organized. The secret is learning the skill and having systems that work for you.
Stephen moved to Salt Lake City nearly 30 years ago from Southern California. He always enjoyed planting a modest garden, but never really needed to worry about seasons, since there were basically only two and gardening was always successful. That all changed when he started trying to grow a traditional line row garden in Utah. (Boy, did it change!) Gardening suddenly became something that required planning, especially when it came to preparation and timing. When you consider that Mother’s Day has been tagged as the last day for frost, yet sometimes Utah sees snow well into June, the shortened seasons became a challenge.
Stephen’s path of how to successfully garden organically in Utah. Quite by accident, he discovered a prototype for a vinyl planter at a vinyl shop where he was working. Not very well made, he decided to experiment with the concept. Eight incarnations later, a well-designed, long lasting raised-bed planter was born.
Thirteen years later, hundreds of happy gardeners all along the Wasatch Front, and dozens of books and classes under his belt. Stephen is stepping onto the design stage to talk about the benefits of raised-bed gardening.
