Garden plans

Plant spacing

Make your own potting or seed starting soil

You can easily make your own seedling and container mixes. It’s a bit like making bread, you can modify the recipe based on the ingredients you have on hand!

Cover crops that nourish the soil

Cover crops crops protect soil from erosion, increase organic matter, add nitrogen, suppress weeds, provide habitat for beneficial insects, feed pollinators and improve soil structure and aeration.
