My name is Michael Nolan and in the gardening and writing world I am known as The Garden Rockstar. I started My Earth Garden years ago because more than being a gardening writer I am an avid gardener with a love for growing things. I wanted the opportunity to share that love with as many people as possible. I wanted to make gardening and simple living more accessible by living as an example of how it can be done.
My own gardening journey started before I could even walk. My mother loves to tell the story of how I once partook of a fistful of spring onions before she noticed, and that when she did try to take them away, I cried until she returned them. For the record, I was only months old at the time.
What is this site about?
The purpose of My Earth Garden is to remove some of the stigmas that are attached to gardening and to make it possible for virtually anyone, anywhere to grow something. Too many gardening websites seem to focus on people who already have tons of growing experience, and this disenfranchises would-be gardeners who lack the basic knowledge necessary to turn their thumbs green. For that reason, I am here to make a concerted effort to answer any and all garden-related questions from both beginner and expert alike.
My Earth Garden goes beyond just gardening though, and with the help of my partner I bring you recipes, crafts and real life tips for how to get closer to the earth without giving up everything you love in the process. Living simpler should be about enriching your life, not doing without.
