How to grow a thriving herb garden

by | Sep 3, 2014 | Columnists, DIY Organic Homestead, Featured | 0 comments

Growing an indoor herb just put together this extensive guide to growing a thriving indoor herb garden. Herbs can infuse flavor into your favorite dishes, even transforming a dull meal into a taste-bud party in your mouth. Many herbs have anti-inflammatory properties and contain cancer fighting anti-oxidants and other nutrients. A small package of rosemary, thyme or chives can cost $2-3 at the health food store. If you use herbs often (like I do, with every meal!) then growing your own can add up to substantial savings each year. It’s easy to do, and so fun to decide what to harvest each day as you choose what is on your menu. Happy growing!

  • Earthwalker

    Earthwalker is the username that PT founder Julie Genser created for her online interactions so many years ago when first creating Planet Thrive.

    Julie's (Earthwalker's) life was derailed over twenty years ago when she had a very large organic mercury exposure after she naively used a mouth thermometer to measure the temperature of just-boiled milk while making her very first pizza at home. The mercury instantly expanded into a gas form and exploded out the back of the thermometer right into her face. Unaware that mercury was the third most neurotoxic element on Earth, Julie had no idea she had just received a very high dose of a poisonous substance.

    A series of subsequent toxic exposures over the next few years -- to smoke from two fires (including 9/11), toxic mold, lyme disease, and chemical injuries -- caused catastrophic damage to her health. While figuring out how to survive day-to-day, and often minute-to-minute, she created Planet Thrive to help others avoid some of the misdiagnoses and struggles she had experienced.

    She has clawed her way over many health mountains to get to where she is today. She is excited to bring the latest iteration of Planet Thrive to the chronic illness community.

    In 2019, Julie published her very first cookbook e-book called Low Lectin Lunches (+ Dinners, Too!) after discovering how a low lectin, gluten free diet was helping manage her chronic fascia/muscle pain.
