GARDEN WITH ME

I want to empower people to fall in love with food and make it up close and personal.  The reward of growing and nurturing it through the process of growing into this nutrient dense food for us.  

I would love the opportunity to help guide you on ideas to start incorporating growing fresh food or herbs into your life.  Big or small, I feel that any opportunity we have to connect to your food, nurture it, grow  from a tiny seed and then incorporate it into our meals to help nourish  our body adds value to our lives.  

If you are interested in incorporating crisp, fresh vegetables into your cooking, let’s collaborate to design a salad or kitchen garden that meets the needs of your family without the frustration and cost of trial and error.  You don’t have to be a master gardener to put quality food on the table for your family and friends. Let’s start growing quality organic foods together that help us maintain our well-being and the well-being of our environment.

WHAT IS A KITCHEN GARDEN?

A kitchen garden is an opportunity to incorporate fresh foods in your kitchen and ultimately lead a  healthier, more sustainable lifestyle.  You are able to bask in the process of growing and forging a connection to your food.  Kitchen gardens consist of raised beds typically located near or around your home for easy accessibility to your kitchen.  It is a smaller scale, more manageable opportunity to incorporate gardening into your lifestyle.  You can grow small or large quantities of your favorite veggies while adding an aesthetically-pleasing touch to your home. It’s a simple way to add a little of your own harvest to every meal.

WHAT IS A SALAD OR HERB GARDEN?

Salad and herb gardens are just that! They are raised beds which provide your favorite greens or herbs at their freshest and most convenient.  They are an opportunity to ease into growing if you are new to gardening. Yet you still get to incorporate fresh herbs in all your meals or have fresh salad for you and your family daily!  Similar to a kitchen garden, they are a low-maintenance, raised bed garden at your home to provide you with lots of fresh healthy organic produce!

“To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow.” ~Audrey Hepburn

My husband and I have had a small garden for the last five years.  We had a challenging season in 2018, and opted out of growing one in 2019. Katie motivated me to try again this year.  With her education and guidance, our garden has prospered.  Katie’s perspective on educating others to grow their own food, along with supporting local farmers, is inspiring!  Thanks to her suggestions on everything from growing methods to protecting your plants from wildlife, Now I’m experiencing the joy of watching plants that we’ve never planted before blossom into food; Katie has brought back the joy of gardening for me!
