Live simply, grow your own, make natural things

I’m Tanya, an organic gardener, soap maker, & green living enthusiast. You've probably arrived here through Lovely Greens or my YouTube channel where I share ideas for growing useful plants and creatively using them in the home. 

These ideas could be growing flowers for handmade soap, vegetables for homemade meals, or herbs for health. There's a lot of fun to be had but the main focus of Lovely Greens is creating a low-impact and eco-friendly home through growing and making your own. 

If all that sounds great, sign up through the form above to receive the free Lovely Greens' newsletter. I send it out weekly and it includes new and seasonal ideas for your organic kitchen garden and creative makes. There's always a natural soap or skincare recipe along with food and herb growing tips, and fresh from the garden recipes.

Here's what some people have to say about Lovely Greens:


I LOVE your website! The recipes, the gardening, the diy/decorating are all WONDERFUL. But what I love the most are your instructions and recipes for natural beauty products - especially the soaps. I have skin issues and have been wanting to make my own soap for AGES. 


I just want to say a big thank you for your inspiring videos! I have recently come across your channel and its been a blessing! I started creating my own little herb garden with mint, rosemary and thyme this year. We also have English and French lavender! I also have some sage grown from seeds.


Thanks, Tanya! 
I love your newsletters and videos and have planted some herbs for my soaps, and am making more infused oils for them.  You are an encouraging and inspiring presence in the world and here at my little studio!  Keep ‘em coming! :)

Get ready to be inspired

I'm so glad you're here and look forward to having you as part of the Lovely Greens family. Sign up above for the free newsletter and see you soon, Tanya
