Let’s Get Started

“When I go into my garden with a spade, and dig a bed, I feel such an exhilaration and health that I discover that I have been defrauding myself all this time in letting others do for me what I should have done with my hands.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson, from Man the Reformer

URBAN GARDENING

Step 1
We’ll meet for a complimentary site evaluation, access the area you’d like to garden and see what you’re interested in growing.

Step 2
I’ll submit a proposal for approval; which will include the estimated hours it will take to plant and what the materials will cost.

Step 3
Upon approval, we’ll plant together to create your urban garden. This is a great opportunity for the whole family to get involved, especially children.

 

“I am committed to keeping my footprint as small as possible, and composting is an important part of that. It’s so satisfying—I barely have any trash to take to the curb!”
—Sarah
