Food security is important, especially in times where our futures are not quite certain. To that end, we have created organic quick-start vegetable garden packages that include seeds, soil, raised beds, delivery, and installation.
It is estimated that approximately 20 sq ft of garden space can sustain one person per year. With that in mind, we've designed three types of gardens we hope will appeal to the various tastes and interests of our diverse community:
All American includes an assortment of the most popular garden vegetables for cooking and canning
Gourmet Chef features an assortment of herbs and vegetables that appeal to the more adventurous palate, and
Mind Your Macros provides an assortment of the most nutrient-dense foods we can grow in our zone
Each raised bed is 18" tall and is 2x4, 4x4, or 4x8 feet wide. This allows for enough root depth to grow while covering existing unhealthy soils if present; is tall enough to ease back stress for those who may not be able to stoop or crawl, and provides up to 32 square feet of growing space depending on the size you choose.
Kits include the following based on the specific garden type:
Raised bed lumber, build and installation
High-quality organic soil mix specifically for vegetable gardening
One trellis or plant supports as required by the garden type
High-yield, quick-growing seeds for cool-season direct sowing at time of installation
Hot crop transplants and installation
Garden layout reference guide
Care and maintenance guide
