Your first step to delicious, home-grown produce starts with a garden plan. You tell us what you like to eat and we’ll develop a personalized planting plan that produces beautiful, bountiful and continuous harvests to suit your palate and the conditions of your garden site. Our garden plans are based on the Square Foot Gardening method and encompass organic methodologies with no synthetic inputs. This includes crop rotation and companion planting in order to stay one step ahead of pests and diseases, to enhance crop flavor and attract beneficial and pollinating insects.

Your garden will be expertly planted by our gardeners who take care of everything needed to ensure many beautiful, bountiful and healthy harvests.
We can plant your garden for you or you can join us in the garden to learn from our Organic Master Gardeners. We love to answer your questions, provide education, guidance and coaching.
Early spring planting begins in mid-April and includes cold hardy crops such as peas, radish, onions, spinach, kale, arugula, and more. Late spring planting includes heat loving crops such as tomatoes, peppers, cucumber, squash, and beans. Succession planting continues throughout the season to ensure a continuous supply of delicious, healthy harvests.
Starting at $200 per hour, 1 hour minimum per visit, plus materials
Our gardening teams are available to garden with clients and their families to provide onsite coaching, or they can work independently.
All planting and maintenance packages start with feeding the soil with compost and other inputs approved for organic gardening. Once planted we water, weed, stake, prune, trellis, harvest, reseed, and replant as necessary, all while trouble shooting common garden pests, diseases, and soil and plant deficiencies. We can also establish Critter Barriers to protect your crops from hungry squirrels and floating row cover to increase successful germination and to protect against insects and frost.
