A guest post by author Michael Nolan:

We humans are a self important lot. We choose and toss away celebrities and fads like the chocolates in a box whose fillings we don’t like. Sadly the same mindset follows us into our gardens.

We carve ourselves a home smack dab in the midst of an existing community and because that community doesn’t speak our language we think nothing of rendering them homeless and hungry in the process. No, I’m not making a political statement about the displaced native Americans whose homes we ripped away from them, I am aiming much deeper than even that.

The weeds that plague our collective suburban existence are actually food and shelter for the true natives of our lands. The birds, rabbits, insects and squirrels all require the same basic things that we do – something to eat and a place to lay our heads. Why are we so self-involved as to think that we can not only take away their natural habitats but also trap, block and even poison them into submission when they try to meet their simple needs in our carefully manicured gardens?

The next time you rip out a few more trees in the name of a bigger garden plot, perhaps you might pause long enough to look beyond yourself and your own needs. You may just find that you can live with what you’ve already got. And so can they.

If you’re a gardener, you may have heard of Michael Nolan, the self-proclaimed “Garden Rockstar.” This passionate horticulturist and author has made a name for himself in the gardening world with his unique approach to gardening and his infectious energy.

Born and raised in the countryside of Ireland, Michael has always had a love for nature and the outdoors. He started gardening at a young age, and as he grew older, his passion for horticulture only grew stronger. He eventually pursued a degree in horticulture and went on to work as a professional gardener for several years.

But it was his love for teaching others about gardening that led him to become a garden rockstar. Michael’s approach to gardening is different from what you might expect. He believes that gardening should be fun, and he wants to make it accessible to everyone, regardless of their skill level or experience.

In his book, “Gardening Made Easy,” Michael shares his expertise and enthusiasm for gardening in a way that is both informative and entertaining. He covers everything from how to select the right plants for your garden to how to care for them properly. He also shares tips and tricks for creating a garden that is both beautiful and functional.

Michael’s mission is to make gardening accessible and enjoyable for everyone, and he does just that with his lively and engaging style. He has a strong following on social media and has been featured in several gardening magazines and on television shows.

Michael Nolan, The Garden Rockstar is an author, blogger and speaker on gardening, sustainability, food ethics and homesteading.
