Welcome to the Lazy Left-Wing Gardener blog. My name is Julia Steinecke and I grow food in Toronto and north eastern Ontario. I also visit gardens and community development projects around the world. To me, gardening is a way for ordinary people to feed ourselves, promote global food security and save the planet. It’s fun too!
“Lazy” is something I aspire to in my gardening, always looking for easier techniques to work with nature instead of fighting. No-dig methods like permaculture, hugelkultur and straw bale gardening are all thrilling prospects at the Lazy Left-Wing ranch.
Drop by anytime you want to hear about off-the-wall growing ideas, mushroom misadventures, and inspiring projects to take local control of our food, all over the world.
