About Author Doug Green


Hi - this may not be your typical "about the author" page. But then again, I'm not exactly typical and my readers may not be your average gardeners either.

Here's why.

  • I'm super-curious about most things and I want to know how stuff works. I'm not content to read the usual blah-blah but want real information based on real data. (just because somebody online says it works is no reason for me to believe it)

  • I love to laugh and much of the time my funny bone is aimed at myself.

  • I have little respect for those who would destroy or pollute our earth for a few dollars.

  • I garden organically. Every page of my sites is based on organic gardening techniques.

  • I garden because it makes sense to me and I feel alive out in my garden close to the natural world and the energy that's there.

  • My garden shed is an unorganized mess. I make no bones about being neat and tidy.

  • My garden has weeds. Sigh. The darn things come along all the time. But like the shed, I can worry about the weeds or I can worry about other more important things.

  • I'm more of an introvert than I would have thought. I prefer the garden, my camera and my word processor rather than the city lights.

  • I could tell you about the writing award or how proud I am of my kids and all that other stuff most often found on these kinds of pages. But you now know the important stuff - I'm insatiably curious, love to laugh at myself, have a wry sense of humour and am a confirmed organic gardener who passes information along.
