GARDEN CLUB MEMBERSHIP
Who it’s for
The Garden Club is for people who are serious about growing some of their own food - whether a small or large garden; whether for strictly fresh summer produce or storage produce too; whether for a couple crops or a very diversified garden.
This program is for you, if:
You love the freshness of just-picked harvests, and enjoy the satisfaction of producing some of your own food
You want to involve your kids in the wonder of growing food
You want to learn more about how to grow healthier crops that taste better and are more resistant to pests & diseases
You don’t know where to start with choosing varieties of seeds, and you’re not sure what varieties will do well in this area, or how much space each crop requires
You value the therapeutic aspect of working outdoors, in the soil and fresh air
Gardening made simple and manageable!
Whether you’ve been overwhelmed with questions about gardening techniques and methods, or overwhelmed with weeds and bugs…
… you can learn methods to make gardening enjoyable and productive without spending all your free time trying to rescue your plants.
You’ll learn the best of the methods we use here, and benefit from years of experimenting.
It’s the best of what I’ve learned over the years, dripped out to you through the season!
What you get
Weekly emails from mid-April to mid-October with tips for growing a garden organically
Invitation to an on-farm discussion on garden plans (get help with plans for your own garden; share plans and ideas with others); this event will be held at the end of April and is exclusive to Garden Club members
Explanation of simple, practical, proven methods for growing a successful garden
First dibs on seedlings
Investment: $65 for the season (~ $10 / month)
Fine print: the cost to join the Garden Club is the same at any point in the season,
because you will have access to all the information.
However, joining at the start of the season will give you the perk of having the info to act on throughout the season.
Comments from last year:
“The plants we got from your farm did so well here this summer. We’ve never grown such delicious peppers before. We need that variety again next year!”
“Thanks for growing the seedlings organically. I couldn’t find much selection of organic seedlings elsewhere, and I was so happy to find such a wide variety of plants at your farm.”
“This was our first year to have a garden that produced much, and I couldn’t believe how much the kids enjoyed it! They were out there every day, eating tomatoes, cucumbers, beans and whatever else, right off the plants. No trouble getting them to eat their vegetables this summer! The landscape fabric you helped us with made all the difference for us. I can’t believe how easy it was to garden with it, and we hardly had to pull a single weed the whole season!”
