Organic Gardening & Natural Soapmaking

A garden can give us much of what we need for a healthy life: food, medicine, art, and a place to lose ourselves in the beauty of plants. The ideas on Lovely Greens focus on making as much as possible from and for the garden. Homegrown food recipes, garden DIY projects, as well as natural skincare, soap recipes, nature crafts, and artisan makes.

The main categories on Lovely Greens include soapmaking, gardening, gardening projects, DIY skincare, food recipes, and crafts. If you want to find something specific, use the search box at the bottom of the page. For seasonal inspiration, browse ideas by Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter.
