Besides managing our urban farm, CSA program and edible plant nursery we also install and maintain edible gardens for schools, restaurants and homes. Our many years of farming experience are well suited to helping others grow their own produce. Wether you are interested in installing raised beds full of annual vegetables or a more long term tropical fruit backyard forest, or even containers full of greens and herbs for your condo balcony we can help you get started and increase your success. If you already have a garden, but like so many home growers you are facing issues related to soil fertility and pest management we can help sort things out. We do consultations to answer gardening questions and get specific about things happening in your garden, such as pests, poor growth and composting. Email us at email@example.com for inquiries.
Take a peek at some of our favorite gardens; as you can see they vary greatly in size and style. Inspired? Get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org, we are happy to customize a garden plan to suit your needs.
Mandolin Aegean Bistro kitchen garden
Mandolin Aegean Bistro, a gem of a restaurant located in Buena Vista Historic District, just north of the Design District, has had a large in ground kitchen garden on their premises since 2013. Three years ago we took over the maintenance and care for the garden and used owner Anastasia's grandmothers backyard garden in Greece as inspiration for the design. Like in a traditional small farm crops are planted in the ground and organized in neat rows separated by pathways traversed by chef and child alike. Traditional Greek and Turkish greens fill the gardens tidy rows; heirloom dandelion greens, swiss chard, frisee, escarole, parlsey, lettuce, and kale. Fresh mediterranean herbs such as dill, parsley, oregano, za'atar, purslane and mint are harvested daily from the garden and used in daily specials.
Wynwood Yard kitchen garden
When Wynwood Yard opened two years ago the property came with a rugged yet fertile garden already on site that creator Della Heiman embraced. Fresh ingredients for her healthy vegan food truck, Della Test kitchen were grown on site and visitors to the yard could hang out amongst tomatoes, kale, and fresh herbs used at the bar. This past summer Wynwood Yards edible garden got a big makeover! Now the garden is bigger, better and more productive than ever, with everything from dandelion greens to oregano flowers being used at the newly opened Charcoal Bar and Grill. Monthly garden dinners take place under reclaimed wood pergola, surrounded by the bounty of the edible garden.
The Broken Shaker & 27 restaurant bar and kitchen garden
When the owners of the Broken Shaker (ranked number 14 out of the worlds 50 best bars) decided to turn a large section of their outdoor seating into a kitchen and bar garden their focus was on inspiration! Forget growing rosemary, mint and sage, everyones favorite and most trustworthy cocktail ingredients... This garden aims to bring new ingredients into the hands of the talented staff so they can create new, unusual and incredibly inspired cocktails. Spilanthes, kefir lime, african blue basil and fresh turmeric root grow alongside edible flowers of every shape, color and size. Baby greens, a variety of spicy peppers, and patches of baby radishes are harvested by head chef Jimmy Lebron for daily specials at the adjacent 27 restaurant.
The Palms kitchen garden for Essensia
This season was our first one tending to the kitchen garden at the Palms for Essensia Restaurant. Chef Julie Frans brought us on board to focus on growing fresh greens, herbs and edible flowers for the restaurant. Purple sage, true french sorrel, pentas flowers and italian heirloom spigariello grow poolside
Residential gardens galore!
Last but not least, Edible Schoolyard Gardens and public and private schools around Miami
