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 you’ll find here on Lovely Greens focus on making as much as you can from and for the garden. Everything from natural skincare and soapmaking to making homemade compost, garden features, and preserving the harvest.

Each of the main sections on Lovely Greens is covered by one of the features above or below. They include Natural Soapmaking, Gardening Tips, Garden DIY Projects, Natural Skincare Recipes, Food Recipes, and Creative Projects. There’s a beautiful cycle of grow-harvest-make and nurturing the land ahead.
