slow gardening
 n.— «The mix of shrubs and flowers Mr. Rushing planted instead of a traditional lawn is an example of his “Slow Gardening” approach. The term takes its name and inspiration from the Slow Food movement, whose adherents believe in using local ingredients harvested in an environmentally responsible way. Mr. Rushing says that he didn’t coin the term, but that he has “appropriated” it.» —“Slow, Easy, Cheap and Green” by Steven Kurutz New York Times Mar. 25, 2009. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
