Summer is well and truly with us, and this means it is time to keep yourself well hydrated more than ever
The heat can be draining (you need no telling) and especially if you have a job that requires you to be constantly outdoors. And with the sun beating down with little sympathy, it’s easy to lose your cool, literally and figuratively, never mind a dip in energy levels.
At its heart though, farm-to-table (also known as farm-to-fork) means that the food on the plate comes directly from a certain local farm, cutting out the middleman who could come in the form of a store, food service or distributor.
Herbal Papaya is pleased to partner with The Immune Defense Summit, brought to you by Jonathan Landsman, the host of NaturalHealth365.com and the NaturalHealth365 INNER CIRCLE , to provide our customers access to 36 of the world’s top experts in integrative medicine and science that will discuss the strengthening of your immune system.

This July though, avoid falling prey to throwing the same humdrum bangers on the barbecue. Sure, nothing beats succulent cuts of meat when it comes to grilling, but you know – meh.

Pick appropriate plants. Not all plants are appropriate for the area you live in. While you might be able to control the temperature, humidity, and rain conditions inside your house, you can’t do it out in the garden. If you pick appropriate plants for your area, you may be able to avoid using fertilizers and saving on water too. Research, what plants are native to your surrounding areas and try planting them in your own garden. Wildflowers, are just that, they can pretty much be left alone and will thrive in most areas.
Pick natural repelling plants. You don’t need to rely on poisons to keep away garden ruining pests. Many plants produce chemicals that repel these animals naturally. By putting them in or around you garden, you can keep your garden safe with little effort and no chemicals. Plus, you can pick parts of these plants and use them to make products to keep them away from you too. If you don’t want to plant natural repellents in your garden, you can use them to spray your plants without harming them or adding artificial chemicals to your garden. Many herbs like hot pepper, vanilla, and lavender can help repel insects from your garden.
Pull weeds. We’re all looking for a quick and easy way to safely get rid of weeds without chemicals, but the good old fashioned way is still very effective. It you take time every day to pull the weeds you can find, you’ll only take a few minutes so it doesn’t seem like a lot of work. You can even get the kids involved, just be sure to do it properly so you don’t spread the seeds around. There are even some common weeds that are edible, just make sure there are no pesticides that could have gotten on them.
Crop rotation. Farmers all over the world use crop rotation to naturally fertilize plants. The concept is to change what crop you’re putting in a certain field each year. Plants use different nutrients and put other nutrients back into the soil. If you rotate crops that replace the nutrients the other plants use, you will have to fertilize the soil less. You can use this same concept in your garden by planting different plants every year, or just rotating where you put specific plants in the garden.
So, you’ve made all these changes and are using a low-water, chemical free garden? Well, you still haven’t done the most important thing: pass it on! One garden can make a dent, but more can make a bigger difference. Tell your friends, teach your kids, you can even visit their schools and camps and teach your kids friends! Every little bit helps make a better world.
