I had the pleasure of joining Marjorie from the “A Sustainable Mind” podcast to chat a few weeks back. You can hear our conversation about what led to us growing food and why we built our app at the link below. We also talked quite a bit about anxiety, depression, panic attacks, and how the battle against them is all related to why grow food & help others do the same.
Here’s the recording of tonight’s free backyard gardening class at OSU-OKC Agriculture Technologies! Thank you to everyone that came out tonight. We had a lot of fun and plan to continue these at least every month for as long as people are interested in learning! I also want to give a big shout out to OSU-OKC for allowing us to use their facilities. Sign up for our email list at http://www.seedtospoon.net/signup if you’d like to […]
This is a recording of a presentation I gave to the Tulsa Horticulture Club. I talk about how my battle against anxiety and depression led us to start gardening, how we converted our urban back yard into a food farm, and the free mobile app we built to help you do the same!
Our last update added customized indoor seed starting and outside planting dates based on your location. To calculate the dates, we used the most conservative estimate for the last freeze date from your closest weather station.

Many times, planting dates can be accelerated if you’re able to provide your plants with some […]

We had a lot of fun at the OKC Home & Garden show last weekend! We went there to help spread the word about the app, to get kids interested in gardening, and to help inspire people to start growing food. I had A LOT of conversations about growing food and began to notice a common theme among the topics. I have this huge list of features I want to add to our mobile app but I’ve struggled to decide what to work on first. Last weekend clarified the biggest challenges facing new gardeners and helped me focus my attention on the most important problems. Here’s what I learned from talking to people for 30 hours straight this weekend about growing food and the challenges they face.
We’ve been absent from the blog and the social media pages (outside of sharing things I’m reading) for the past 4 months. I’m excited to take a minute to pause and explain where we’ve been and share the story of building our first mobile app.
