What We’re About

Although this country was founded on agriculture, in today’s society people are completely disconnected from where food comes from. Most children have never seen a vegetable garden let alone a farm. It’s a shame and doesn’t have to be that way. My name is Elise and I live in an urban city with a smaller back yard, my husband and I both work full time jobs, and we travel – a lot. Even with our busy schedule, we still manage to grow our own vegetables, use rain barrels for water, composting to help fertilize the garden, and have chickens for fresh eggs. Believe it or not, it doesn’t take very much time and allows us to eat fresh organic produce that is good for us and the environment, plus it saves quite a bit of money too!

Our mission is to get people started with a foundation in sustainable gardening so that they can experience the joy of picking their first gigantic eggplant or filling an entire basket with ripe tomatoes they grew themselves. The joy of growing your own food and doing it in eco-freindly way is so rewarding and it is my passion to share and teach this way to you. We look forward to helping you find your own green thumb!
