Veganic Gardening, what's that?!



Here in New Jersey we are definitely moving into planting season so, what better time than now to have veganic gardening expert, Meg Kelly, join the podcast and share her tips for growing a vegan garden?


You might be wondering, "vegan garden? Aren't fruits and vegetables vegan?" Yes, they are, but, as I found out when I tried to start a garden of my own and Meg confirms in this episode, there are a lot of hidden animal products in the things we use to build our home gardens. Soil and fertilizers are major culprits here, as they often include blood and bone meal, likely from factory farmed animals. Meg shares suggestions on composting and Bokashi (a method of almost pickling your food scraps to use as garden fertilizer) as a better option for fertilizing your plants.


About Meg: Meg teaches the Learn Veganic online gardening course to empower people to grow their own fruits and veggies the vegan way, using entirely plant-based fertilizers.

Meg has been gardening veganically for 15 years in backyards, on balconies, and in the countryside, and she helps people grow their own thriving gardens that are animal-friendly and sustainable.


Meg has been actively promoting veganic gardening and farming since 2008, when she co-founded the Veganic Agriculture Network. She launched the Learn Veganic gardening course in 2021 to provide aspiring and experienced gardeners with veganic classes, mentorship, and an online community so they can reach their gardening goals.

I'm so glad you had Meg Kelly on your podcast! I've been following her work for a while now, and I'm always impressed by her knowledge and passion for veganic gardening. She's a great resource for anyone who wants to learn more about this sustainable and ethical way of gardening.

I especially appreciate her tips on composting and Bokashi. These are two great ways to fertilize your plants without using animal products. And, as she mentioned, they're also great ways to reduce waste and help the environment.

I highly recommend checking out Meg's website and social media pages. She has a wealth of information on veganic gardening, and she's always happy to answer questions.

Thank you for sharing her work…

Hi there! I just listened to the podcast episode featuring Meg Kelly and her tips for growing a vegan garden, and I have to say I learned so much! I never realized the hidden animal products in soil and fertilizers could be a problem for vegans. I appreciate Meg's suggestions on composting and Bokashi as alternatives. It's inspiring to see how you can still enjoy the benefits of gardening while staying true to your values. Thank you for sharing such informative content!
