The art of

SOil Building

We try to make sure that during the course of each year 50% of the square footage of our growing area is holding soil-building crops. 

That seems like a lot, but it is very important to actively and consciously build your soil and grow crops for your soil's health. 

Part of the art of gardening organically is soil building.

We do a series of plant sales that match up with the growing season and planting out each year.

Organic Gardening Workshops and Courses

We offer a wide range of courses on both a beginner level and on advanced and specialized levels.

Organic Gardening

We believe that the only way to produce healthy and nutritious food is to produce it organically and sustainably. It is in organic food production where the human race will find true health and well-being.

We are very proud that we have been Certified Organic through NOFA-NY Certified Organic, LLC Program for almost 15 years - from 2005 until 2019. Although we have decided to officially retire from certification, we still will continue an avidly "beyond organic" approach to every thing we produce. At this point, we also practice a "beyond sustainable" approach as we feel that the world is calling for us to regenerate and restore rather than just stick to sustaining ...

We want everyone to feel empowered and able to produce their own organic food. We are actively working to provide a variety of options on this site for incorporating organic gardening into gardens, homesteads, farms, and lives. We offer a variety of workshops and courses, spring plant and seedling sales, and lots of information, videos, and articles.
