What you can expect from a consultation
Some of the things we can cover in a private consultation include garden design, sustainable practices that may work for you, seasonal crops, pest management using organic methods, soil fertility and harvesting.
You may be considering raised beds or you may be looking for alternatives to raised beds, such as a food forest or edible landscaping. We can walk you through the ins and outs of various gardening techniques to figure out what works best for you and your property. Composting is a topic that comes up very frequently. We'll be able to assess your composting system if you've already started or we can help you set up a new system. There are many different ways of home composting and we know it can be tricky to navigate this subject. We'll also help to clarify how our unique growing seasons affect vegetable plants. You may walk away with a crop list or at the very least useful resources for putting together a crop list that will actually work. In order for a vegetable garden to succeed you gotta have a tool kit for managing a wide variety of pest issues. During a consultation we can talk about specific pest issues you are currently having and we'll recommend our favorite OMRI certified organic products and techniques for keeping pests under control.
