Indoor Gardening the Organic Way

How to create a natural and sustaining environment for your employees with organic indoor plantings.

Find green business solutions
Organic gardening and farming are hot topics...outdoors. But businesses also benefit from indoor greenery to freshen the air and provide uplifting workspace. The natural green questions that arise in business greenscaping are ... "WILL organic work indoors?" ...and "How can we grow our indoor plants organically to reap the benefits of organic methods and get healthier, more beautiful results?"

Now there's an answer! "Indoor Gardening the Organic Way", a pragmatic new book by California author Julie Bawden-Davis.

Indoor Gardening the Organic Way Julie bawden-Davis How to create a natural and sustaining environment for your houseplants is the subtitle, but it could easily be reworded, "How to create a natural and sustaining environment for your employees!

Many gardeners still use harsh synthetic chemical fertilizers and pesticides when growing plants indoors. Since we spend more than 90% of our daily time only makes sense to bring the benefits of organic growing to the plants we live with during those 22 hours a home, work and school.

Going organic with houseplants is not only possible, the results are amazing! From management tips on mulch to eco-friendly ways to handle plant pests, Davis provides an essential resource for both novice and experienced gardeners who select, nurture and manage indoor plantscapes.

The book covers organic techniques for soil, watering, light, and feeding plants for better health all around. Even preventing diseases, pesky critters and maintenance tips for repotting and pruning.

Vermiculture is one small-space technique that teach employees about composting. By turning lunchtime garbage into compost using a "worm bin" both provide valuable organic fertilizer for your indoor plants, and support employee participaton in experiencing green alternatives. Even worm poop becomes acceptible when people see how it is odorless, messless and has a natural, high-benefit, low-cost result. The state of California also encourages worm composting...especially at work! This book, "Indoor Gardening the Organic Way" explains HOW to do it with easy instructions.

Whether your plants are cared for by an in-house team member, or by an outside service, going organic in the workplace plantscape can improve both the beauty and functionality of your plants...and make an impact on the horticultural industry by voting with your dollars for more organic options indoors and out!

NOTE: Julie Bawden Davis is available to speak at organizations on a wide variety of gardening topics. Located in Orange, California...she's just a hop, skip and a jump from helping you implement indoor organics in your company...and your employees' indoor environments! What a "green" idea for an employee brown-bag luncheon!
