Growing your own food is a rewarding hobby and one of the best things you can do for health. Food freshly harvesting from your garden not only tastes better, but has been shown to contain more nutrients because you can ensure it was grown in rich, healthy soil and because it hasn’t begun to break down as it makes its journey from a far away farm to your grocery store and finally to your table. When you grow your own, you also can avoid the use of pesticides and synthetic fertilizers. As a bonus, you can save some money, get a great workout in the garden and reduce the toll your groceries make on the environment!
Organic Vegetable Gardening:
We believe that sustainability and bounty go hand in hand. We will help you grow your organic garden with our compost-based soils, fertilizer, soil amendments and mulch, natural pest control methods, organic seeds, plant starts, seed-starting supplies and more. Healthier soil and a healthier ecosystem in your backyard brings a more nutritious harvest.
In Southeast Louisiana (Horticultural Zone 9B), we can grow vegetables, culinary herbs, edible flowers and fruit trees outdoors year round. But that doesn’t mean it’s easy! With years of gardening experience, we can help you get started with the right soil blends, pick out the right seeds and starts for the season and troubleshoot pest issues. The best thing to do is come in and chat with our staff!
In a hydroponic garden you provide your plants complete nutrition delivered through water. An inert growing medium anchors your plants roots so they have easy access to everything they need to thrive. Plants often grow faster and are ready for harvest sooner. We can advise you on the best system to suit your space and budget.
Give your plants life from decay. Compost is the biological art of breaking down organic material into potent and nutritious plant food. We can help you draw up easy backyard compost plans, whether through basic aerobic composting piles or bins or through a vermicompost set up (where worms eat the compost!)
