4th Annual Sustainable Neighbors Garden Tour

Wisteria - quick bloom but oh so fragrant!
Welcome back Wild Indigo readers! This week will feature a quick glance around ye 'ol Celtic Garden but mainly serves as the vehicle to announce the 4th Annual Sustainable Neighbors Garden Tour. Mark your calendars for Sunday May 3rd. Time and further details TBA. So far four or five gardens will be on tour which will sure to inspire you for yours! Details will follow closer to the date and you can read more about the gardens on tour here or you can ask in person at the Fayetteville City Market located at the Transportation Museum Saturdays from 9:00 - 1:00 at the Sustainable Neighbors booth.

Oh the bliss of urban gardening, let me count the ways! Mind you, the Celtic Garden has always been a dream of mine. Everywhere I've ever lived I've utilized my green thumb, in flowers mainly up until recently.  Each dwelling or balcony became a garden canopy for my heart and soul to bloom which I then left behind for the next tenant to enjoy.   
Watching the movie "Food Inc" was life changing for me both personally and professionally.  Despite being in the medical field, I had no idea how broken America's food system was! After being a life-long renter, the Cumberland Heights property was purchased in 2011 with the sole purpose of attaining roots of botanical sovereignty!

I relinquished my Fayetteville Community Garden plot but not before gaining valuable experience in raising year-round Southern produce, thanks to the discipleship of green-thumbed gurus there. I set out to establish a sustainable garden of my dreams but this time in my own back yard! The dream continues. 

Our intention at Celtic Gardens is to grow seasonal organic plants for health and medicinal benefit just as Mother Nature intended it - void of pesticides and GMO seed. Filled with fragrant sweet bush, fruit of vine and tree, colorful perennials, unusual botanicals, medicinal herbs, lush green pathways and bursting with seasonal eats the Fayetteville Celtic Gardens will be open for public touring for the 4th Annual Fayetteville Urban Garden Tour. The ever popular Sonshine Soaps will offer herbal sundries and soaps for purchase. Cash and credit welcomed. Come experience the garden and find inspiration to grow yours. 

And as always may happiness be a ray of sunshine in your heart, body and soul!
