Vegan MoFo: Vegan organic gardening


We have a large garden and in summer/autumn we mainly eat our own food (which I love). Here’s a list what we grow in our garden:

Fruit: apples, apricots, blackberries, currants, kiwi, mirabelles, peaches, pears, plums, quinces, raspberries, sour cherries, strawberries

Vegetables: arugula, beans, beets, broccoli, carrots, celery, chard, chili, corn, garlic, green beans, jerusalem artichoke, kale, lamb’s lettuce, leek, lettuce, onions, potatoes, pumpkins, rhubarb, spinach, tomatoes, zucchini

Herbs: basil, borage, cilantro, lavender, lemon balm, oregano, parsley, peppermint, rosemary, sage, savory, tarragon, thyme

Other: walnuts, flowers

Vegan gardening means that you don’t use animal products in your garden, for example fertilizers that contain horn shavings or bone meal, blood or dung of an animal. In organic gardening you don’t use chemical fertilisers or pesticides. We compost plant materials from the garden (e.g. weeds) and the kitchen. That compost is used as dung for the beds. We use plant liquid manures to protect our plants. We like to grow new types of plants every year, there are several organizations that provide seeds of heirloom plants. I like to keep seed of all plants for the following year.

Here you can get more information on the topic:

Vegan Organic Network – based in the UK. They have a lot of information!

Natural gardening – information how to make your own compost and fertilisers!

Are there any other vegan gardeners out there? What are your experiences? Do you have links, infos on the topic? 🙂

    • Hallo,

      probier’s mal bei der Fam. Binder, die stehen am Sa (glaub ich) immer am Naschmarkt und haben grundsätzlich Grünkohl (weiß allerdings nicht, ob’s jetzt schon welchen gibt, meiner wächst schon, aber ich hab noch nicht probiert, er soll normalerweise einmal durchfrieren, sonst ist er bitter). Also, entweder mal am Naschmarkt vorbeischauen, oder Fam. Binder direkt kontaktieren. Webseite ist lg
