the story behind the D.I.R.T.Y. approach to wellness

My health and well-being was at a pivotal point.  The education started and after a night of binge-watching documentaries on Food Matters TV about farming and our food system.  I sat there and it really hit me, my actual garden is healthy but “Katie, your soil is depleted”. . . Literally.  

It was time to get my hands dirty and really dig into what I needed to do to get myself back on track.  So the journey began and it began with food in my garden.  I got my hands dirty to learn about the benefits of the food I was growing and its supportive role in my healing journey.  After exhaustive research on how to design my garden to better support my health. I became more intuitive with what I was planting and how I brought it into my kitchen. 

As I took the time to plant the seeds and nurture those tiny seedlings, I gained more clarity.  The dirtier my hands got,  the more firmly I could ground myself  in the healing process. I started to “sow the seeds” for establishing new habits and frame life through a more sustainable lens.
