An overview of us
Welcome to Nature’s Toolbox Ltd, home of the Garden Tower Project in the UK, and our corner of the planet that centres around the growing of plants, especially edible ones, in broadly organic, but especially vermi-cultural environments.
As UK hosts and agents for Garden Tower Project, Natures Toolbox distributes and provides provides an enthusiastic product support service for the UK market. Having experience with both prototype “vermi-planters” and composting with worms or “vermi-culture”, we are well aware of the benefits of this system, and so can assist with spreading the news of just how well this growing system works and why it works, and the great benefits that can be had from it.
Across this site and our Garden Tower Facebook Page and our Youtube channel and other media, we will delve into the amazing natural processes at work “under the bonnet” that make this such an exciting and yet easy gardening system. For the space restricted, the Garden Tower can be a completely self contained garden, for the elderly or infirm, a very easily accessible one. For most of us it is a truly absorbing hobby.
Used as a completely organic system the Garden Tower can also be a very useful teaching aid, and importantly a powerful personal contribution to both your- and the planets well-being! The mini-biome it offers can demonstrate that these natural systems (these environmental arrangements evolved over the millennia to extraordinary levels of complexity by nature) are perfectly adoptable and adaptable by humans to produce their increasing demand for food. Simultaneously by doing so the environmental balance that defines our planets very existence will not be quite so jeopardised as by previously ill-conceived industrial and agricultural methods, which have led us to seriously degrade 33% of the worlds soils and modify our atmosphere to the point of ominous climate change. These natural systems simply need to be better understood and more widely practised by a larger portion of the global population in order to reverse the degrading trends. Key to this is a) acceptance of the fact that unless we do so, we are staring down the path of our own extinction, and b) education, teaching ourselves, our neighbours and the next generation not to make the same mistakes. It is also vitally important that every single citizen of planet earth does his or her bit, because believing that the problem is too large, or always someone-else’s, or that small contributions don’t count, is actually the core problem. To this end the over-arching philosophy at Natures Toolbox is to adopt adapt and disseminate the small contributions that can help you and help us, to help the planet. Join us and enjoy the experience.
