A Little About Where it all Started

Welcome to Nifty Nature Fix! My story starts with being raised to a Costa Rican mother and a Canadian father. I moved to Costa Rica when I was young and we lived a simple non-materialistic life. Something resonated with me that living life on a budget while being sustainable was the way I wanted to continue living. I later became a geotechnical engineer, and was driven to that career by the pure power of the earth and the soil we stand on. I then wanted to incorporate nature and soil not only into my day job but also into my daily life.

I now live in Edmonton with my boyfriend and cat where we grow most of our produce organically in the summer and farmers market hunt in the winters!  I love having the chance to share my passions and wonderings with my lovely readers. Explore my site, and enjoy.

Here in Edmonton we're told not to get too anxious and start your outside garden before May long weekend because it could snow and there is a decent chance it just might! Elsewhere in warmer climates you can start before then, or just start your inside garden early the...

I have been holding off on writing this post because I thought it might be a little tone deaf or just bad timing but then on second thought I realized that we all need something to look forward to when this is all over and this place really is a hidden gem.

We had a tri...

I started doing research into the ingredients that were in the products (mostly skin care) I was buying about a year ago. What I found out blew my mind... and I started to feel like we shouldn't just trust what Health Canada allows companies to use... Especially when y...

About 6 months ago I got the idea of making my own organic soaps. I didn't want to use soaps bought from the stores that were made with lots of chemicals and toxins. I wanted to know what exactly I was putting on my skin.

So I bought a reputable book off Amazon called T...

This post is based solely on my own personal experience; however, I must say I have had some amazing success in meeting besties through unconventional ways on the interweb! I have had to move several times, either for work or university and starting over with zero frie...

I've recently been curious about trying to make my own body and face lotions. I used to buy Desert Essence organic coconut face and body lotion but I would run out pretty quickly. Having said that I do really like it and do recommend trying it out, you can get it at Bl...

If you want to build soil that is full of life and will nurture your seeds into healthy plants keep on reading! To do this we need organic matter which we divide into three different categories: compost, mulches and cover crops. This post will touch on Compost....

Every year I start my seedlings early, around the second week in March. This is to get a head start and the seedlings will then be ready to go outside once it warms up in May. 

Come May Long weekend we plant our outside garden. From my recent learnings in permaculture i...

Every time I go back to Costa Rica I try to check out some new places I've never been to. This last trip I did some research and found out about the Catarata del Toro (Del Toro waterfall) which looked pretty damn awesome to me. It also worked out because it ended up be...

If you're thinking about visiting Costa Rica I definitely recommend fitting this waterfall into your itinerary, you won't be disappointed. Even if you're not an avid hiker, it is accessible to all kinds of physical levels. I saw some elderly people along the walks so t...
