my name is Doug. I've been gardening in one form or another for as
long as I can remember. Somewhere along the trail I also started becoming very
aware of how wasteful we humans are, especially here in the US. This led me to start doing
every day tasks in a much more conscientious manner in order to avoid as much waste
as possible, while also finding new uses for objects that most people tend to see as trash. I find it very satisfying to turn discards into art or some other
form of treasure.
One of the most important gardening experiences was when I created my first compost
pile, where I could see first hand my organic garden waste changing into
nutrient rich soil to nourish my plants. It was almost like magic.
The environment and its
preservation has been very important to me for decades,
creating an urge in me to recycle
everything possible, both at home and at work. My goal here is to motivate as many of you as
possible to begin, or to increase, your recycling efforts. The time has
come for all of us to pitch in and do as much as possible to preserve this
planet earth that we all share. Your help will be greatly appreciated by
everyone, especially future generations. Be sure to check out some of my

to make the world a better place?
