A New Place to Further Our Commitment to Organic Gardening

A New Place to Further Our Commitment to Organic Gardening

June 15, 2020

Reconnecting to Inspiration

During this time of relative uncertainty, we have decided to renew our commitment to gardening. Dr. Cowan’s Garden was originally a place, located in Napa Valley on a plot of land generously donated by a friend. It embodied our ideals and was a sanctuary for growth and learning.

The garden was our muse for new product offerings and for improving existing ones. The garden kept our ambitions grounded to certain fundamentals, as the practice of gardening can be challenging. As we have grown and are now moving on from our West Coast roots, we are not abandoning our ideals. We are building on our idea of sanctuary and reconnecting to the source of inspiration that has brought us this far.

Situated on an eight-acre plot of land, our new home in North Yarmouth, Maine, is the first new East Coast location that will be shaped by us and is intended to be a source of inspiration for years to come. We’ll grow plants here to test for future products.

A private gardener took extreme care to lay the foundation for what can only be described as a fairy tale of rock-terraced beds, a pond, small bridges for a waterway and so much more. For now, we are attempting to highlight the natural beauty of the property. Soon, we will plant fruit tree orchards, an herb garden, a vegetable garden, and perhaps a streamside garden. We will do a lot of pruning, trimming and mowing, and all along, we will appreciate the work that has already gone into the garden.

Included are “before” photos, and some that reveal the existing beauty of the gardens.

Ancient Grains
Ancient Grains

July 07, 2020

For many of us, our relationship to food is a never ending journey. Sometimes to move forward one finds themselves looking back. For bread and specifically the grains used to make it I find that the best results are indeed found in reflection. It is sometimes true that modern ingenuity has value for us, but that is usually only when paired with ancient wisdom. For grains, that wisdom is in the ancient varieties that have been grown for thousands of years.

Manifesting a Vision Means Clearing What Doesn’t Serve
Manifesting a Vision Means Clearing What Doesn’t Serve

June 24, 2020

The first step for us in creating this new garden is born of necessity: In a word, that step is clearing. That means trimming, cutting, pruning, mowing, and sawing all the overgrown limbs and weeds.  Thanks to at least a half dozen trips to our local hardware store, we have been delighted to find affordable battery- and muscle-powered tools. The hand tools, including a wrought iron broad fork and other copper-forged tools, are humbling. Their use requires a level of efficiency I am learning rapidly.

How Oxalates in Plants Prove It’s All About the Dose
How Oxalates in Plants Prove It’s All About the Dose

June 02, 2020

In old English, “Physic” connotes “healing” or perhaps “medicine.”  An ancient principle is that the dose of any substance will determine whether it is a poison or a medicine for the human being.  It is the fundamental principle of homeopathy, a system of medicine that starts with poison and turns it into medicine by changing the dose and the form.  This principle is also key for many people in coming to a healing diet for themselves.
